Review of State assets will not be ready until middle of next month - SUZANNE LYNCH -> http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/fin ... 92932.html

Quote:
THE REPORT on a review of State assets chaired by Colm McCarthy will not be presented to the Minister for Finance until mid to late January, The Irish Times has learned.
The review group was due to file its report by the end of the year. As the report will now be issued to the Minister by the middle of next month at the earliest, it is unclear if it will be presented to Government before the general election.
The delay in the publication comes as ratings agency Moody’s downgraded €550 million of Bord Gáis debt yesterday. The long-term debt securities was downgraded to Baa1/P-2 from A2/P-1.

there is more


It's bad enough that the cold is driving up my gas bill, now I'm going to have the overhead of the bank bailout and green party nut jobs work it's way into future bills as well. :(

To work out how much can be made by selling (some of) them.

I'd cull the quangos before I'd even look at selling some of these. What the feic was the point of McCarthy's report at all but to give Coughlan something to bleet on about for a while?

Can any and all national resources and/or infrastructure be siezed or reclaimed by a new government? Such as Chavez's siezure of the nation's oil resources?

In no way am I an opponent of privatisation, but I am principally opposed to the privatisation of core national assets and infrastructure.
What kind of future country do we want? One where you have to pay a toll to walk on the footpath outside your house? An air tax?
However this is Ireland, the crack whore, so undoubtedly it makes sense to prostitute our entire country and all its resources to the lowest bidder when prices are low.

Any deals done that has deprived the Irish people of the very simplest of their birthrights will be undone.
I believe in working hard.
I believe in helping your neighbor.
I don't beleive in freeloaders, whether they abuse social assistance, or whether they make a living pressing buttons and believe themselves above others.
I, for one, have had enough of the rape and pillage of this country and the good-will of it's people.
