Enda Kenny is obsessesed with the Jobs Green Jersey ... sell(out), sell(out), sell(out) is his mission

Not a scintilla of controversial ethical foreign policy from him ... always looking at the grubby aspects

Problem is ... you've to trade for those

Government sees corporate tax as main threat from Trump
[last paragraph]
The Government is also nervous that Trump’s ambivalence towards Nato could prompt the EU to seek to intensify defence co-operation, something to which this country has been traditionally allergic. “That would raise questions which we’d rather not have to address,” said one Government insider.
Trump adviser says many US companies will now leave Ireland
Large numbers of US companies will leave Ireland and relocate to the US to take advantage of a new corporate tax regime which the new presidency will put in place, a senior adviser to Donald Trump has said.

The fact that the defense issue is in the last paragraph is telling ... low down in priority ... but a dog whistle nonetheless ... that we'll sell out on human rights ... Eastern Europe, the Baltics, Ukraine ... so long as lots of the lovely lucre comes in

Enda Kenny is taking the worst part of Dev (sucking up to the Nazis) and the worst parts of Haughey (selling passports) ... and going one further ...

"Ethical foreign policy" you having a laugh?

It's unethical to be loosely aligned with the KSA, if Clinton won through Dinny's "overlordship" of FG we would be tied to a President beholden to the KSA and Qatar and whatever uncertainty abounds nowadays because of Trumps victory would pale into insignificance if Clinton and her pay masters were victorious.

They'll ride out the next four years and be back on track for the great "Shia V Sunni or America/The Whest Israel & Sunni allies against the axis of evil of Russia/Iran & allies.

May you live in interesting times!

KSA has to kick ass and try and buy its way back in after spending billions court Hillary and failed policies.

Time to kick them to the Kerb and visit Tehran.

The Corp tax isnt a killer. Remember our tax rate is 12.5% but we help US corps pay 0%. Trump cant beat that.

Plus - most jobs here in US multinationals cant be moved to the US. They are here as a foothold in the EU and selling to the EU.

A trade war - as Trump wants - makes that foothold more critical.

Kenny's behaviour is, of course, appalling, but it isn't an outlier in an way - Internationally, politicians will treat Trump as though he's just like any other President, because that's how our system works (which is one reason why Trump's election is a disaster, as it will mean people who behave as he does will come to be taken seriously and treated with respect).

What nobody wants to say out loud:


It isn't our 12.5% tax rate, it is our willingness to enable a 0% tax rate.

Correct.

Idiots claiming Trump can't do anything will find that Commerce Dept having a Tax Investigation into companys based in Ireland for tax evasion may change their view on paying taxes very quickly.

Apple sitting on $300 billion in cash helps nobody.

The point is that the world is the way it is because people allow it to be that way.

It is sad to see Enda grovel like this and I'd say Trump relished it, having a right good laugh at the other end of the line "oh ye, don't worry about those things you said, I'm renowned at being thick skinned and not seeking petty retribution...."

Kenny is a forelock tugger par excellence

the 'pressure release valve' of immigration of irish to places like the USA has been the only thing to keep eejits like Enda Kenny in a job for the last 100 years.

But for that, we would now be onto the second or third irish Republic by now.

Quite so.

But imagine if even 1 euro was taken off children's allowance the OAP and the dole as a result of falling corporate tax receipts and generally reduced economic activity.

Based on Irish water and the conniptions of sensible property taxation is broached there would be lynchings on the street.....

It was always thus....remember the reality of "did your grandad go out on Easter week or was he in Salonica?" Is "neither , he was an assistant draper" for most people ....

( moving quickly to clarify my nationalist credentials are impeccable which I can demonstrate factually if you join me on my high horse ;) )

Maybe but lots of the same faces would have led. Very strong argument that FF as the party of constitutional republicanism, populism and the farm laborer suffered most in terms of vote loss in the thirties through to sixties.

Ireland always looks the other way. Just recently:

(1) Deployment of Irish soldiers to train the Malian Army in contravention of Article 29.2 of the Constitution
(2) Support for sanctions on Syria in complete contravention of international law - punishing the people to get at the ruler
(3) Support for sanctions on Iran, unauthorised by the UN, in breach of Article 29.3
(4) Participation of Irish soliders under NATO/US command in Afghanistan - breach of neutrality
(5) Extraordinary rendition flights through Shannon, assisting a US programme which is in breach of international law and makign Ireland complicit in facilitating torture.

They will do this even if there are no jobs at stake. Because Irish politicians have no respect for the Constitution or international law.
