Cowen is probably covered in guiness and nicotine stains and a lick of paint might do him a world of good.
Cowen is opening a Tesco in Naas today. Yes, the country is falling apart and the leader is heading down to Naas in his expensive car with Gardai to open a bloody shop.

Does Biffo get a fee for this from Tesco, which FF developer is he helping out this time, wasn't Sean Dunne active in this area.
People in Naas are saying it is killing the town

How? it's just opened.
either it's been opened for a while and is officially opening today or the person who said it to me used the future tense rather than the present tense-which I used.
apologies.

It is the latest, largest and flagship supermarket of a company that employs thousands and invests millions in this country.

Some posters have no brains.

Supermarkets tend to be open a good few weeks before their offical opening.
Even so it's bringing jobs to a county devestated by unemployment i fail to see how thats 'destroying' Naas.

Besides all those blow in dubs done that already!

Anyway back to the matter at hand, laughing at jabba

So the Taoiseach pimps out his office for them?

Sher if your going to take it up the arse off the foreign bondholders sher what harm is cutting a ribbon on a supermarket.

Isn't that what we have Goergie Salpa for??

How stupid is it to have protests about cuts when the Minister is turning the sod on the construction of a new facility. Seems like mental health a well needed in that area. What next an unemployment protest against Cowen when he opens new Tesco store?

:rolleyes:
In fairness, a new Tesco store is completely irrelevant to our economic fortunes. The fact that Cowen turns up to open it just demonstrates the extent to which our private sector is full of fluff. We're meant to pretend a new shop has something to do with generating the exports we need to take a step down the long road of getting out of this situation.

Anyone know how many of these type of functions our Taoiseach performs in a week? Seems to be non-stop.

A total and utter joke that this is part of his job description.
Why not get some local smallfry to do the honours?
Doesnt our leader have more pressing matters which could be exercising his mind?
Why would tesco think it was a good idea? Do they not read the papers?

I for one will avoid their entire franchise...
S'much as i detest dunnes - i will shop there or super quinn -

If they want to associate with economic traitors then i want nothing to do with them.

No they dont. Supermarkets like Tescos actually cost more jobs than they create. Their business practices have forced thousands of small business and shopkeepers to close. It has been proven that for every 1 job these multinational conglomerates create, 3 local jobs are lost.

Tesco to create 266 jobs in Naas - RT News

266 jobs will be created with the opening of a new Tesco supermarket in Naas in Co Kildare.

It is part of a multi-million euro investment in new stores around the country.

The company also plans to open new stores in Galway, Mayo and Waterford later this month.

The store was officially opened by the Taoiseach Brian Cowen. Tesco Ireland says the new store is part of a €113m national investment plan, which it hopes will create 748 new jobs across the country this year.

How much Irish produced and manufactured food will it displace?

How much Irish produced and manufactured food will it displace?

How many existing jobs in retail will it replace.

Our Taoiseach thinks this is something to celebrate, and thinks it worthy of his time to open such a store.

All this while the Fine Gael Fair Trade Food Bill gathers dust on the Shelves of the Dáil.

How can we prosper with such a man in charge?

Is there a net job creation though ?

How many jobs will be lost in other shops that will go under ?
A 1998 study by the National Retailer Planning Forum (NRPF) examining the employment impacts of 93 superstore openings between 1991 and 1994 found that they resulted in a net loss of more than 25,000 jobs or 276 per store opened.

from here

Almost needless to say, Tesco help fund FF

No we don't like bad news dressed up as good news

so?
their business practices cause many jobs losses and closures.
but sure it's grand if they can employ teams of people to stock shelves all night.

Tesco investments just lead to job losses, starving farmers and housekeeping money flowing out the economy.

some people don't like 'good news' being bad news.
No we don't like bad news dressed up as good news

Every little hurts!
