Peoples News issue 98
Contents

P 1. Fool you once……!

It is timely to remember Noonan’s promise to burn the bondholders.

P 1. Troika bullies.
The troika had very little interest in social measures; they were only concerned about cutting back the deficit.

P 2. ‘Preserving the integrity of the euro area monetary policy and the stability of the Irish financial sector’
– ripping off the citizens!

P 3. ‘Unlikely that Ireland will participate’ in EU Central African Republic (CAR) force

P 4. Water charges - think EU!
It’s all down in the end to the EU and the Water Framework Directive from way back in the year 2000!

P 6. Having another go at the Coughlan judgment!
THE IRISH TIMES editorial office is about to embark on another of its reactionary campaigns.

P 8. Rehn defends troika
– and indirectly acknowledges that some Eurozone countries - notably Germany - had dictated the way the Eurozone rescue was designed.

P 9. The EU’s green credentials! The EU Commission has abandoned plans for new laws to regulate shale gas extraction

P 10. The proposed EU banking union is not only one of the most complicated pieces of legislation drawn up in the EU, but it also gives unprecedented powers to a restricted body of non-elected people

Excellent Newsletter as always O.
I highly recommend everyone have a read.

The fracking, banking and water related parts are especially interesting.
Anyone interested in these topics should definitely grab a copy.

Great stuff!
