I thought I was unshockable when it came to the EU.
I thought I had the measure of them when it came to money grabbing and sheer lunacy but I was wrong.
Ireland applied for a bailout back in 2010 because we were broke, smashed and penniless. We urgently needed €67 billion just to survive. Along came that knight in shining armour – the EU – to lend us the money.
Since then we have been paying back that cash plus exorbitant interest at a terrible cost to the Irish people. We have suffered suicides, bankruptcies, emigration and social deprivation as every cent we make seems to go to the EU. Even now they are demanding tough budgets even though those budgets are literally killing us.
Now it transpires we have been charged fees for the privilege of being bailed out.
I suppose you can argue that fees are necessary, but you would think that under the circumstances that the EU would either waive the fees or carry the cost themselves?
But no. We, the Irish tax payers have to pay those fees which cover such items as travel and expenses for the three stooges from the EU, the IMF and the ECB. They have been over here several times snooping into our affairs and laying down how we must bleed ourselves dry to pay back their fucking loan.
So how much do you think the fees are? Remember, they are for travel, accommodation and administration and we know these people like their comfort so the fees must be high?
A hundred grand?
A few hundred thousand?
Remember – this is the EU we are talking about.
Fees to date amount to more than €220,000,000.
Yes, that’s right. Two hundred and twenty fucking million fucking euros in fees.
Nearly a quarter of a billion euros.
How can they possibly justify that?
For that they could have bought the airline and the hotels and still have change.
How many hours of respite care would that pay for? How many schools could have been repaired for that? How many hospital emergency departments could have been saved? How many suicides wouldn’t have happened if those desperate people had had a minute fraction of that?
Be in no doubt.
The EU is nothing to do with cooperation or helping one another out in a crisis.
It is purely about power and money for the elite.
It is evil and rotten to the core.
