A new advertising campaign has begun in the health market, since the risk-equalisation
scheme has made defunct the BUPA health care and insurance company.

VHI does not corner the health care market and the 'competition' (bupa) has
been got rid of, the obscenity of it is that the millionaires who are best friends
with Bertie Ahern are becoming so arrogant about making their cash.

The ad campaign features a cycle based on Che 's speeches, the subtext is that
a revoultionary new form of health insurance is on the market. This is the
by-word for Tony O Reilly and his buddies cornering the health insurance

you find it in the Irish Times who have consistently facilitated the corruption
and private-marketeering of this administration.

Tony O Reilly is the majority shareholder ion VIVAS- tribunal of enquiry anyone?
Does VIVA's have to pay the same risk-equalisation?

to get the utmost profit from people whilst creating laws to facilitate their

Sadly most ordinary decent citizens are oblivious to the machinations of the shadowy billionaires who will soon control almost every facet of our lives from the cradle to the grave-in conjunction with Fianna Fail of course.!
