And that means no more EU forced bailout down their throats!

Ireland's new government on a collision course with EU

Ireland's new government is headed for confrontation with Brussels after the country's ruling party was wiped out on Saturday by voters in a huge popular backlash against a European-IMF austerity programme.

Exit polls and early tallies from Ireland's general election heralded political annihilation for Fianna Fail (FF), the party which has ruled Ireland for more than 60 years of the Irish Republic's eight decades of independence.

The unprecedented and historic defeat, Fianna Fail's worst result in 85 years, makes the Irish government the first eurozone administration to be punished by voters in the aftermath of the EU's debt crisis. Voter turn-out was exceptionally high at more than 70 per cent, indicating public anger at the government and the EU.

Late last year, Ireland was forced to accept a £72 billion EU-IMF bailout to cover huge public debts that were ran up to save failed Irish banks.

Hell yeah IRELAND! Time to kick those banks out of your country!

That stinking government basically forced them into slavery to banks and the EU :

The bail-out was designed to prevent financial contagion that threatened the existence of the euro, but according to economic forecasts, the cost of servicing Irish bank debt and the EU-IMF bank loans will consume 85 per cent of Ireland's income tax revenue by 2012, a burden that a majority of voters find intolerable.

Brian Cowen, the Irish Prime Minister and Fianna Fail leader, who stood down last month rather than face furious voters, was also pressured into implementing a savage £13billion austerity programme of tax rises and spending cuts drawn up by the EU.

It was a revolution by elections... but still a revolution... if the government stands up for the people and tell the EU and the banks to go screw themselves, as they should.

Good for the Irish! Free at Last, a famous Black man once said. Deep in my memories are men with black hats and rifles, advancing and never turning from battle. This will come to America too, mark my words. I do not know how it will go down, but I do know that Americans want something. They want a Reckoning.

this is a poem by padrig pearse, and I think it has as much meaning for the peopl of the world today as it did for the irish

I am come of the seed of the people, the people that sorrow;
Who have no treasure but hope,
No riches laid up but a memory of an ancient glory
My mother bore me in bondage, in bondage my mother was born,
I am of the blood of serfs;
The children with whom I have played, the men and women with whom I have eaten
Have had masters over them, have been under the lash of masters,
and though gentle, have served churls.
The hands that have touched mine,
the dear hands whose touch Is familiar to me
Have worn shameful manacles, have been bitten at the wrist by manacles,
have grown hard with the manacles and the task-work of strangers.
I am flesh of the flesh of these lowly, I am bone of their bone I that have never submitted;
I that have a soul greater than the souls of my people’s masters,
I that have vision and prophecy, and the gift of fiery speech,
I that have spoken with God on the top of his holy hill.
And because I am of the people, I understand the people,
I am sorrowful with their sorrow, I am hungry with their desire;
My heart is heavy with the grief of mothers,
My eyes have been wet with the tears of children,
I have yearned with old wistful men,
And laughed and cursed with young men;
Their shame is my shame, and I have reddened for it
Reddened for that they have served, they who should be free
Reddened for that they have gone in want, while others have been full,
Reddened for that they have walked in fear of lawyers and their jailors.
With their Writs of Summons and their handcuffs,
Men mean and cruel.
I could have borne stripes on my body
Rather than this shame of my people.
And now I speak, being full of vision:
I speak to my people, and I speak in my people’s name to
The masters of my people:
I say to my people that they are holy,
That they are august despite their chains.
That they are greater than those that hold them
And stronger and purer,
That they have but need of courage, and to call on the name of their God,
God the unforgetting, the dear God who loves the people
For whom he died naked, suffering shame.
And I say to my people’s masters: Beware
Beware of the thing that is coming, beware of the risen people
Who shall take what ye would not give.
Did ye think to conquer the people, or that law is stronger than life,
And than men’s desire to be free?
We will try it out with you ye that have harried and held,
Ye that have bullied and bribed.
Tyrants… hypocrites… liars!

i must plead ignorance on Irish politics but i'll take a guess
that it's no different to the situation in Britain.
Did we have a revolution when we got rid of the unpopular
Labour govt?
No we replaced it with an equally unpopular Tory coalition Govt.
This is what Western democracy is...
Meet the new boss,same as the old boss

So now the Irish can breathe a temporary sigh of relief. Won't last long before even further disappointment and disillusionment set in at yet another impotent government when they face the reality of the economic situation.

Can someone enlighten me as to the substance of governance in Ireland?
Do they have a Parliamentary system like England where they have to cobble together coalition governments in the case there is no majority?
Thanks.

Fine Gael is the most supportive (pro) EU political party in Ireland there, guy.

while I would not want to dampen the feelings of the OP too much, but Lucifersjester has summed the Irish election in one post. Nothing will change and Ireland will still do exactly what the EU tell it do do. There is no revolution in Ireland, what is sadder, it that the people of Ireland believe things will change.

Exactly. I cant see too much change coming from this election. Its like when we had to vote on the Lisbon Treaty, we voted no the 1st time. But of course this obiviously didnt fit into the governments plans so we had to vote a 2nd time where then it was accepted. It doent look like the people have much of a say in the running of the country. I would have liked to see Sinn Fein in power, to see if they'd make a better job of it.

Gotta love people who have a boner for war and "Revolution" here in the US; where apparently the deaths of tens of thousands don't matter because we have to change our government because of a #ing health insurance prorgram.

I'm sure you'll be so gung ho when a bomb drops on your own home; killing all of your friends and family. When you can't eat and when gangs and riots start taking over large cities and even normal people start breaking into your home for food and to rape your daughter.

It is SICK that you people actually want to go out and start a war where millions of innocence could die. All because you don't like a f***ing health insurance bill?

Elections are where your feelings get heard. Not shooting everyone around you so you can have your real like Revolutinary War fantasy played back in real life. Millions will die...tens of thousands of children left without parents; food or water. Disease spreaking like wildfire due to all the dead bodies.

You people DISGUST me.

Not to put too fine a point on it "Such is the cost of Freedom"
Americans understand revolution/war in a way most people never will. We are well aware of the costs, the costs of saving our own country, and preserving the freedom of other countries as well-think WWII.

Also- you are sadly misinformed if you assume that all of this is over a health care bill. Its actually over our ability to command our own destiny.

Well that sucks. I thought really that the elections meant that a new anti-bailout party would take over and tell the EU to piss off...

Damn... Hopefully the Irish kick those bastards out too if they don't stand up for Ireland.

It will take people like that the OP a little bit of time to realise that the new muppets that have now been voted in have no power.

The EU and IMF is calling the shots in Ireland.

Tens of thousands of families are in dire straits , suicide is epidemic, huge numbers of business's have failed or shut down. Unemployment is rampent. The numbers hae stayed steady because so many people have left and so many people are entitled to nothing if they were self employed. The economy is dead with most people only able to pay for food. Many can't even afford this. Tens of thousands have left the country.

Another budget or two and the strikes will started followed by riots. The country is on the path to complete destruction.

The governement has nationalised the banks so when the time comes they will be able to restrict peoples access to their own money.

I reckon we will see a revolution in Ireland but it will probably be another few years yet. Unless a collapse happens sooner.

The change of governement is nothing more that a momentary distraction.

(The country was forced back to the poles to vote on Lisbon with promises of growth and jobs and good times. Most of the general population believed the lies. The same thing will happen with the new government for a year or two before people wake up. When you watch situations like this you realise how foolish and gullible the general population is. )

Ireland has one of the worst economies in Europe, i mean really bad, if Ireland do leave the EU it would be a stupid mistake, next time they want a bailout, it's not going to happen.

You people need to step away from the "Europe is NWO, Jewish elite agenda" idea for one minute, afterall it could all be BS.

Europe is a economic superpower, the richest continent in the world, it's GDP is just under that of China, Russia and the USA's combined.

Long Live the EU.
