Them and Us — 5 Comments

  1. To my way of thinking this let off of those three bankers is deliberate reinforcement of a divide. I say deliberate because the system needs a divide to carry on operating in plain sight without the slightest chance that enough men and women will turn round and tear it down my ignoring it.
    The system is a massive ego that craves constant attention. What better way to get the maximum attention than by pit the 'common man' against the 'elite' and visa versa?

    it's a scenario that has been played out for thousands of years across the entire world has it not?
    Perhaps and I am prepared to be shot down in flames here, perhaps if we simply turned the other cheek and forgave the bankers, politicians, unions in fact anyone thriving on divide and offered them the opportunity to atone for their actions and work together to deprive the system of our energy, our money and last but not least our attention.

    If they won't take the opportunity offered then we goal them Icelander style or we strip them of their assets and ostracise them.

    • There certainly does seem to be a large element of rubbing our noses in it. 

      "Look how we can screw you over and get away with it, but if you step out of line……."

      One of the main Anglo culprits is over in the US happily buying his way into Millionaire's Row.  No extradition there then?  Hah!

  2. Nobody that I know ever believed any of the three would go to jail – guilty or not.

    Certainly nobody in Greystones ever believed Seannie Fitz would spend time behind bars.

    • Of course it was a foregone conclusion.  Equally this enquiry they are starting up is just going to be weeks of waffle with no conclusion other than "mistakes were made".

  3. Many years ago I remember a cartoon in 'Private Eye' showing two Russians in Red Square watching a jet fly over towards the East. One turns to the other and say, "I hear Alexander Solzhenitsyn got forty years in the Gulag." The other replies wryly, "Imagine what he would have got if he was guilty." 

    The parallels with Ireland today are striking.
