Clinton tells rich they are the problem at 2500 a head event in Dublin
dublin | consumer issues | other press Friday October 01, 2010 11:30 by Andrew
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."

Look here,I see the champagne Shinners beloved leader and his bezzy bud Blair also attended, good old Provos still hanging with the capitalist elite. which side are you on bhoys, which side are you on
soooooooooooooooooo 2,500 a head 575,umm thats over 1 million this ex president has pocketed nicely,a lovely tidy sum of money too!bill clinton has been reported to say,(depending on which journalist you are going on),'that ireland is toast',and..that ireland can recover and grow,even though everything is too expensive to be in the situation of growth..and that irelands rich are the problem..anyway im sure he was a lil honest..and,im sure he paid for the champers and lamb,and atlantic salmon, sounds like a beautiful flavoursome meal i would love to have had some of that!
..blasphemy. Never speak ill of the dollar Bill...
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.
