" 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..."

(From the ‘e-Thursday’ section of the ‘Business Week’ supplement of the ‘Irish Independent’ , 21st August 2008.)

This blog was listed as one of the 'Finalists' in the '2016 current affairs/politics' category of the Littlewoods Ireland blog awards - but we didn't win the award. But not to worry -thanks to everyone involved for getting us to the final stage of the competition and sure we'll try again the next time!

The same gang of unprincipled political incompetents that are bringing you this, amongst other injustices , want you to vote 'Yes' for Lisbon 2 for , amongst other injustices , this reason : they are already extremely wealthy (financially , not morally) but are not satisfied with that - they want you to secure their financial future by voting 'Yes' to Lisbon because in doing so you will guarantee their continued financial prosperity. Don't be a 'turkey' - play your part in bringing them down to earth by voting 'NO!' to this faulty Lisbon Treaty/Constitution today , Friday 2nd October 2009!

Also - experienced observers will have noted the absence of State Garda who are usually positioned around polling stations as 'security' : a whisper is doing the rounds that the State Garda force has been instructed to 'relax' its presence for the vote today - if not to disappear altogether - thus helping to facilitate the manipulation of the true outcome of the poll. Either way - whether by lying about the alleged 'benefits' of the Lisbon Treaty/Constitution or by ballot manipulation - the political 'elite' in this State are determined to secure their own financial positions and will stop at nothing to do so. Don't assist them .
