Ireland on brink of revolution over bailouts

'Revolution' Warning Over Bailout

Tuesday March 02 2010

A revolution will erupt if billions of euro more in taxpayers' money is handed over to Anglo Irish Bank, Enda Kenny has warned.

The Fine Gael leader said people can no longer tolerate massive public funding of the nationalised bank as it stands.

Expected record losses at the bank, to be announced later this month, have fuelled speculation it will seek another six billion euro from the Government, on top of the four billion it has already pumped in.

Mr Kenny told Taoiseach Brian Cowen there will be a popular uprising if any such request is given the go-ahead.

"There'll be revolution on the streets if you do that," he insisted.... (cont)

Can we borrow ron paul please to kick some ass?


The Irish will go quietly. A

The Irish will go quietly. A centuries long battle for independence, only to throw it all away on the Lisbon Treaty.

I have no confidence that they will do anything but acquiesce.

Long live the Irish

the Irish ignore anything they can't drink or punch. Gotta love them Irish, they are always ready to kick some ass!!!!

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

Since governments control

Since governments control which stories get to the mainstream, it is obvious that the government wanted us to hate the banks. Think chess...they made the people hate banks in order for them to do something else...in this case, the macro economic harvest...the boogeyman of the decade...in this case, the banks.

Previous minor and major boogeymen have been the energy crisis of the 70's, Savings debackle, Japan buying up the US in the 80's, Islamic terrorists, Y2K, China, etc.

Think about it, they are actually trying to pass one of the most expensive things on the planet (healthcare) at the same time they claim we are in an economic crisis.

One or both isn't true.

It's funny how so many people are bright enough not to trust what the government/media say about 9/11, but then they trust that the bank bailout, the attempt at healthcare, the bad economy, etc. are all true. People believe what they want to believe...and if people are chicken-hawking, then fine the gov/media will give them what they want to distract us from interferring with creating a world order.


People are figuring it out. They know it's not just the banks but a combined conspiracy of govt+banks+media (fascism).

Nice one...

Go Ireland!

The Bank of England has kicked Ireland in the ass for the past 300 years - hope they start kicking back!

END the FED before it ENDS US

Potato Backed Currency

I would buy it.

I'd rather see a

whiskey-backed currency - at least its potential longevity or "retention of value" is higher than that of potatoes.

Plus, the equivalent of metals purity could be age and quality of whiskey - i.e. a 1954 whiskey is equivalent to .9995 pure gold, while last year's is 10k :)

I've always wanted to try drinking money. Just never found the taste for blending up a buch of bits of paper...

It's coming apart at the schemes!


There's that "revolution" word again.
I think it's starting to catch on.
