Clinton tells rich they are the problem at 2500 a head event in Dublin

category dublin | consumer issues | other press author Friday October 01, 2010 11:30author by Andrew Report this post to the editors

Last night in Dublin former US president Bill Clinton told an invited gathering of 575 of the richest 1% of Ireland's population that they were the greatest problem facing the world. They paid over 2500 a head to hear this as they chomped down on "Atlantic salmon, Connemara lamb and lemon posset, washed down with Chablis Domaine de la Mandeliere 2007 and Chateau Les Roches Gaby 2001."

differnce between our government and the likes of gerry adams...well he is a sneaky f**er,but at least he knows how to attract the money,the north was never in a better situation since the likes of gerry came along..the economic growth in the north is still increasing,although it is a bit slower in the areas of manufacture,but there have been,increases in retail,it,and businesses renting in cities like belfast.
