Simon Kuper's book about how a small group of 'Tory Toffs' who were at Oxford in the 1980s masterminded the Brexit project to reclaim their aristocratic birthright is highly entertaining, but not convincing.

Victims Relative To 'The Celtic Tiger'

To whom it may concern: The list of manufacturers here are just some of the business's in the south of Ireland that are connected with the machinery of imperialist wars. Can we get a discussion going leading to a widespread, coordinated and effective campaign, with the goal of ending the manufacturing of any military components or devices in Ireland for war?

It was done in the north, we can do it in the south. See The raytheon 9 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raytheon_9 and related links.

However ethical this campaign, in the current climate of Class war, austerity and shortage of jobs, it will be difficult to push forward.

People are desperate and will work anywhere, even in a factory producing parts for death machines. Imperialists know this well. In fact, they depend on it.

For the same reasons, you'll notice an increase recently in Irish economic conscripts choosing to enter the british imperialist army at this time.

Good luck with your efforts though.

If the campaign gets off the ground, who would it rely on to push it forward, the people employed in these factories?

"......an increase recently in Irish economic conscripts choosing to enter the british imperialist army at this time....." No I didn't notice, have you any figures?

Workers in any one of those factories can be guaranteed one definite if it closes down, they won't starve.

Stay on the topic Fred if you reply, the manufacturing of military components and devices in Ireland.

Apparently recruitment of irish citizens into the british armed forces is increasing at a rate of 10% per year for the last 6 years. These are "economic conscripts" as far as I'm concerned.
