Tomorrow, the government will hand €700 million of public money to unsecured investors in Anglo.
This is the text of an email I sent t our public representatives using Contact.ie
You can do the same.
I am an Irish citizen, a taxpayer and a voter. I want you to know that I consider the payment of €700 million to unsecured Anglo bondholders a disgrace. This debt was incurred in the course of a private transaction and it should be left in the private sector where it belongs.
These debtors are unsecured and there is no logic or morality in the Irish government underwriting their losses while at the same time inflicting austerity on citizens of this country.
I am asking you to do all you can to prevent payment of this money. There is no justification for it.
