A coalition of obedient servants of the EU and IMF

A coalition of obedient servants of the EU and IMF

The much-heralded “renegotiation” of the terms of the imposed EU-IMF “Programme for Ireland” proved to be nothing more than a damp squib.

The hurt being felt among our people is growing, as more and more people are being stretched to the limit and beyond.

As recent surveys show, our people cannot afford to carry this unpayable debt any longer. Families are being forced to make great sacrifices to keep their heads above water. The EU and IMF are virtually determining what we have for breakfast as people struggle to pay bills and to feed themselves.

We can no longer carry German and French banks on our backs. The people must be allowed to vote on this deal and on the massive transfer of wealth from the people to foreign and domestic banks.

The fig leaf of re-establishing the minimum wage that the outgoing coalition Government cut is nothing but a ruse. They asked for nothing, and got even less.

Eoghan O'Neill
