I appreciate good wordplay. Nice. A loaf to the mush is a bit different than chopping people up or hanging them from lamp posts though and maybe would be a measure response.

missing the total point entirely. the government is the snake oil salesman in this scenario and made promises of secure future income then pulled the rug from under them by removing milk quotas and putting the beef industry on the floor.

sure you can always trust what your government is promising and telling you, can't you?

What about all the people buying houses and then the govt run the country into the ground and introduce property tax. Does that mean anyone who got into difficulty didn't have to pay their mortgage. Were they safe from eviction? Were they fcuk.

I have sympathy for these people who were evicted as it happens. I'm not a heartless bastard. The bills still have to be paid though.

This.

If these 'private security contractors' are legit, let them follow the rule of law like everyone else. A heavy gang who on gbw original video can be seen clearly roughing up one individual in particular, while the attending garda can be heard to say 'it's on private property', nothing to do with me type thing.

It's interesting to note the reporting of this incident (in direct contrast to the non reporting of the incident on Tuesday, and the injuries received then). Reading RTE, these were poor innocent security guards who were set upon by a rabble of ne'r do Wells, rather than a hardened band of mercenary heavies who threw their weight around in the same location a couple of days ago.

A post above talks about greedy bastards borrowing too much and not being able to pay it back..... that description applies to banks more than anyone else in this country. There is a difference between the law and justice

the courts are not behaving the way they should be in these evictions and the rule of law is not being followed...but how does an elderly farmer from the middle of nowhere go up against this machine to obtain real justice? just look at what that guy on his farm beside intel in kildare has been put through.

there is a 21st century land grab happening right under our noses and yet most of you still bay for blood taking the bankers sides.
Where has the money gone that he has invested. Can he sell machinery livestock etc. This has nothing to do with farmers expanding. Farmers are in a great postion now, low interest rates asset appreciation, subsidys etc. I'd say it's a complete disregard for the banks that caused this.

Tell us what he owes and for how long etc. Then we'll get a better idea.

Sorry Wolfe tone. We will leave you to instigate a new border campaign with your followers- That be when you stop kneecapping youths up north and taxing drug dealers down south. Wherever do you find the time.

That was nothing to do with you. It's the condescending tactic when there's nothing to add that I was referring to so run along and be offended elsewhere, you weren't being referenced at all.
