"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Quotes, Questions & Cake

Off-shore banking cake

The quotes:
Taoiseach Brian Cowen: “I don’t believe there’s any reason for Irish people to be ashamed and humiliated."
IT Editorial: "We have made our independence more meaningful by sharing it with our European neighbours."
Christine Lagarde: "We all have our role to play."
Unattributed (ie I can no longer find the link but think it was Osborne): "The UK has a huge export market to Ireland."

The questions:
What does all this kerfuffle confirm about the EU stress-testing of banks?
Why does no-one mention that many EU exports to Ireland go via Felixstowe because Dublin has limited containerized capacity? These onward exports are included in Britain's own figures.
Where will any money for a direct deal between Ireland & the UK come from?
Who will lend to us?  The risk-averse bond/shareholders of the banks who we've already bailed out once?
How many more bail-outs will be sucked down this monetary whirlpool?
When will inflation kick in in Britain?
When will taxes rise in Britain?
How much money does the taxpayer have left?
How much longer can Ireland live in denial about its loss of independence?

Follow the cake:
The bond holders we're bailing out
The return of Super Mac
£200m+ spent since May on consultants, PR & marketing
Honours for Cash
Update on MPs' expenses 'rectification' deal
Big Pharma, big handouts

Here's a graphic from a post I made in May (click to enlarge):

None of it makes sense; it isn't logical.


  1. It makes perfect sense. The centralised national banks are owned by the Rothschilds and their banking cartel. Every time money passes from one country to another they collect 1-3%. It's like a giant monopoly board with them collecting money for passing 'Go'.

  2. :-) Yes, that's what I tried to imply, DL, it's the only thing that does make sense. Did you follow the link to the bondholders? All shareholders in each other's banks, all getting bailouts from the taxpayers. It's getting so there's nowhere for ordinary folk to run.
