While you become ever poorer due to increased taxes, the government is quietly giving away billions worth of natural resources to a private company. In fact the government is giving away enough money to rescue our economy, and there seems to be no explanation for it.
I’ve been talking about this for a long time, but if you don’t believe me, maybe you should have a look at this report in the Irish Times.
You are paying for hundreds of police to protect the Shell construction site in Mayo so that a multinational company can take billions of euros worth of our gas and give us not a penny in return.
Why? At a time when we need every cent we can scrape together, why is this happening?
