Plenty of money for the Bailouts. Very little for Health and the People

Investors and banks being bailed out

Children still suffering whille overseas investors gain


I am mailing you today on reading from a daily paper that Brian Lenihan Plans to use taxpayers money to not only bail out the banks here in Ireland, but now to also bail out foreign investors.
We have been highlighting issues of cutbacks to Our Lady’s Children’s hospital in Crumlin for a number of weeks now, so I am sure you are all aware of what is happening regarding its current situation.

So to think that our government is yet again laughing in the face of sick children is nothing but scandalous.
Yes I say laugh as the day they voted against putting the 9.6 million funds into the hospital they patted one another on the back and shook hands and giggled with joy to a job well done.

They are handing money over to BANKS and OVER SEA INVESTORS,
While children are suffering, How can they now come out and justify this outrageous act. How can they keep ignoring all the parents who are on bended knees pleading with them to help there children,

These are Sick children and in the Irish constitution it states the government will provide in all areas for them. But again they are clearly breaking that promise while money is flowing trough to the people who made this country in the mess it is today, and now I will state again to OVERSEAS INVESTORS.

For me today is a sad day, as it is a day that clearly states without a doubt in my mind that our governments policy is money before health, What is it the government is telling these children, it is clear
BANKERS AND INVESTORS “well hello there”

The news that 'Seanie' Fitzpatrick recently evicted a tenant from a flat because he could no longer afford the rent points up once again the disgusting one-sidedness of the system here, it's dreadful Mugabe-esque unbalance. There is a feeling of helplessness among people, but they should understand that they are NOT helpless and if they can demonstrate publicly against pension cuts they can demonstrate publicly against the bankers evicting people. Is this what Brian Lenihan is creating, a society as unequal as anything we endured in the 19th century? Now, openly, more and more columnists in newspapers are asking why we aren't on the streets.
