According to a recent Guardian article, gombeen Irish politicians from Fiannna Fail, Fine Gael & Labour have secretly agreed a common marine border, in which the Irish island of Rockall, has been ceeded to the British by these corrupt Irish politicians. British occupation of the Irish island of Rockall an Irish outcrop jutting out on a vast lucrative oilfield west of Ireland, which is to be examined within weeks by the UN, means that Ireland will loose trillions of badly needed tax dollars, because of deals done by the corrupt politicians in the three main parties in Dublin. Irish Republicans claim that the island is part of Ireland along with all the vast reserves of oil and gas which belong to all the people of Ireland.. It is also believed that huge bribes were offered to all of the three parties as well, with regard to large reserves of oil and Gas off the coast of Ireland...read more @ Rebels YELL link below...

"Rockall, nonetheless, sits on a plateau claimed by all four nations. Britain and Ireland have agreed a common marine border that leaves Rockall in the UK sector."

You got there first Mr. Finnerty so mea culpa.

Shows you the stupidiity of politicans though.
Only oil-men are interested in Rockall.
And they have fabulous technology.

They should pay.
Scandinavians will make them pay for the seafloor.

We gobshite Irish gave the seafloor free to the oil-men.

..came a stranger idea.

My scope says nationalistic claims are no more relevant in the 21st century than corporate piracy. They are both redundant paradigms from our historic social evolution and have to stepped down if we are to find managment systems to make our species viable into the unavoidably globalised future.

These are common human resources, and a first-come-first-served schoolyard code of spoils division just means the deepest pockets will buy the slickest lawyers to advance their claims.

We need a more radical breakdown of ownership values, or the final arbiter will, as ever, remain the kiddy with the biggest arsenal.

We have to devise structures based on humanised scientific assessment rather than instinctive animal territorial claims. Unfortunately its looking more and more likely the long-predicted resource wars of the 21st century will pre-empt any effort to initiate such saltatory transitions.

Given the collective firepower of the contenders, and the completion of the long, slow-burning, stealth coup by DARPA and its affilliated agencies in Washington, plus the general fascistic appeasement of militarism as credo of first resort(culturally ingrained over centuries to the extent it monopolises much of our self-definition) I wouldn't go getting optimistic.

There is another case pending through the UN presently between ourselves and Denmark/Faroe Islands. It is expected to take two years for a judgement. One thing for sure. The big guns are not going to undermine their monopolistic ambitions. Any progress will have to come from a coalition built throught the General Assembly which will be opposed tooth and nail, cloak n dagger, by the big kiddies in the Security Council.

Once upon a time, fado, fado, we had Irishmen in the UN who understood this aspiration to a more just global post-colonial regime. Since then we have become the lap-dog of the poodle of the Pentagon and its NATO coalition of the wilful.

The harsh reality guys, is that there has been minimal protest to the give away of our natural resource's, where are the protests? By this stage, I despair, with all due respect to the people to the people who have displayed such tremendous courage at Westport?

Downloading(slow feed my side).

One to snare. Just picked up a fresh one in Easons Friday. 'Treasure Islands' (Taxhavens and the men who stole the world) by Nicholas Shaxson, Bodely Head,2011.

Nice expose of the networks of launderers and tax scammers that facilitate this global churnover of the producers of the earth's wealth into the holds of the yachts of these 'players' pirating our futures.

The radio continues to deal with it as a national problem, just the decoy these stateless saboteurs like to see hunted while they count their skyscraping zillions all the way home. All the usual suspects, plus a few, and more detail than most of us can access.Shaxson has worked for the FT and Economist so he has an inside lane. Details the beggar-my-neighbour, race-to-the-pits we're trapped in.

Page 32. 'Millions of people around the world have for years had a queasy feeling that something is rotten in the global economy, though many have struggled to work out what the problem is. This book will reveal the original source of the trouble.'

Thats what it says on the tin. He gives a website(didn't get to look yet)as www.treasure islands.org ,so check it for the selves.

checking it out now...
all this is not really shocking news to the political cassandras amongst us though
but good to have details in a book from a "credible source" (i.e. someone who was part of it all at one point..ironic!)

Lots of decent people all through the shit, fighting and standing against the rats. Thats why I dislike ideological rigidity. It fossilises the neurons, whether from left or right.
The FT and Economists are propaganda organs,true, but they do throw up some rigorous analysis betimes. And those who confirm our false assessments and them that clap us on the back because we confirm their own conclusions, can do us more damage than those who honestly hold opposing views.

Its still 'the enemy' we gotta make peace with, not our own chorus lines. Me an Papa Razzo are the only ones infallible, an I'm beginning to doubt even Benny's word.
I see he's having a go at the Pakistani blasphy laws now, as a 'threat to minority religions'. Cant recall him squeaking about the recent Irish blasphemy legislation foisted by Dermo(speakin of rats and sinkers) as an insurance against any inflamatory challenge to superstitions and hereditary prejudice.

Report dated Tuesday, October 11, 2011:

"KIEV (Reuters) - Ukrainian ex-prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko exceeded her powers when she ordered state energy firm Naftogaz to sign a gas deal with Russia in 2009, judge Rodion Kireyev said as he delivered a verdict at Tymoshenko's trial for alleged abuse-of-office."
"State prosecutors accuse Tymoshenko, the main political opponent of President Viktor Yanukovich, of illegally forcing through the gas deal and have asked the court to sentence her to seven years in prison.

"Ukraine court says ex-PM guilty of exceeding powers."
