Enda Kenny lies in the Dáil

Driving in to work this morning I was listening to Morning Ireland and among all the sound bites about the emergency bank legislation last night they included one from Enda Kenny when he said “We are now a poorer but, perhaps, wiser people from the lessons we have learned” in reference to the economic turmoil of the past few years.

Actually that is not the case – as he well knows.

While working people who make up the vast bulk of the population are indeed much poorer the reality is that the capitalists who run this society are in fact much better off.

The Sunday Independent “Rich List” of March 2012 detailed how the 300 richest people in Ireland increased their wealth from €50 billion in 2010 to €62 billion in 2012 – an increase of 25% .  And we can assume that when next months 2013 list comes out there will have been another hefty increase for these parasites.

And if Enda Kenny can lie about a detail like that then I think it is clear that his suggestions that this emergency bank legislation is about alleviating the burden on all the people in Ireland is also a lie.
