" A wealth of information..."

"1169 And Counting is a wealth of information on our Republican past and present , and demonstrates how the Irish political landscape , like that of any nation, will never be a black and white issue..."

IRISH BLOG AWARDS 2017 - ooops! It seems that our entry application was "not completed in time to be considered.." (?) and, as such, we are not now in the running. But we wish all the best to the successful entrants and to the organisers, and we hope all goes well for them on the day!

IRISH 'ROYALTY' WANT A 'YES TO LISBON TWO' VOTE : LET THEM KNOW ON OCTOBER 2nd 2009 THAT WE ARE NOT THEIR 'SUBJECTS' . VOTE NO!




The millionaire politicians in Leinster House are not happy with their lot (paid for by those of us who are stopped tax out of our earnings, incidentally) and they need more income to secure their non-productive and fine lifestyle for themselves and their families in the manner they have become accustomed to. As is usual in cases like this , they themselves will not directly seek to take more from their 'subjects' but will instead set-up a 'Committee' to do the dirty work for them - then , when they implement all or most/some of the 'recommendations of that Committee' , they will, they hope, be seeing to do so at 'one remove' from the cutbacks/extra taxes etc that they pass into State law. And that is what has happened today : a 'Committee' has advised that more money should be removed from the pockets of those in this State who are lucky enough to have a job in the first place, by the following means - an annual property tax on all residential property , child benefit should be a taxable income , removal of tax relief for nursing home expenses , domestic water charges should be phased in and income tax relief for trade union subscriptions should be ended.
Altogether,more than 240 such measures were 'recommended' by that 'Committee' , all of which focussed on
'raising revenue through property taxes, spending taxes and income taxes...'
If you are eligible to vote in this corrupt State then make sure you do so on October 2nd next and vote 'NO!' to the Lisbon Two Treaty/Constitution : if you vote the way the establishment politicians want you to vote they will interprete that 'yes' vote as a vote in favour of their intention to take even more taxes from you. No to Lisbon Two , No to extra taxes !
Thanks!
