- Great. The problem is we’re spending 20 billion a year more than we take in, in tax. I suppose someone else should pay that for us too. Or perhaps we should immediately cut that money now and screw the poor and needy.
- We’ve issued, I believe, 7(??) licences out or 100 odd at a discounted rate. We have in our history landed a total of 0 oil and currently the Corrib field has landed 0 gas. Given that oil companies are greedy profit driven animals you’d think they’d be taking our hands off since they are getting such an amazing deal for squillions of oil/gas. I dunno almost seems like the figures we see are not true.
- We just had an election. Perhaps though people should reflect on who they have been voting for over the years.
Why is it so difficult to have an honest debate in this country? I'm all for protests as such but this is just untrue or crap.
