I'd put it down to her caution, just taking small steps not addressing the main issue.
Also her finance minister Scauble is highly conservative and lacks a holistic view. He's Noonan with a pass in business studies at Inter Cert.
noonas buisness studys cert is of the same or less eqquivelant, how people can make out a degree recieved 40-50 years ago is the equivelent of a degree on the same subject in 2016 are the same are really really out of sqew

Following on my last submission. It seems both promote the neoliberal, anti-religious influence to the detriment of the 99.90%

The principles of neoliberalism have both ideological and concrete aspects. First is the formal ideology of neoliberalism which promotes the theory of the small week state with low taxes and week regulations as a means to destroy Keynesian social state liberalism and free capital from any restraint.

In actual concrete practice however, government must operate at the service of the financialized transnational capitalist class, assisting its efforts to accumulate capital.

This means that the neoliberalism promotes the big, powerful, coercive activist state for the capitalist ruling class and the small weak state for everyone else

germany had made 80m out of greece before any bailout, the bailouts were another milestone around their necks, as they had to go to their debtors and not into the economy, they were forced to use their creddit card to pay their morgage
But, according to that poster, nobody but Germany would loan money to Greece.
That's nothing but a straight up lie.

From Brexit & Irish politics thread

Quelle Suprise - as they say in Brussels.

"This Northern Ireland select committee on how customs would apply post Brexit does not bode well for T May or Enda Kenny. Soft border imposs"

"Alarm for all UK ports. NI comm told that it is not poss for electronic customs checks up and running in two years, so trucks will be stoppd"

"A former head of EU customs tells @CommonsNIAC that Theresa May's talk of a frictionless Irish border, post-Brexit, is "nice words""

Given the limited capabilities of T May & E Kenny (doffing the hat as Master Noonan told him to) is anyone surprised?

The UK has torn up a treaty it signed with nearly thirty other European democracies to cooperate in matters of mutual interest in the EU.

The EU has replaced the exterminations and savagery of Stalin and Hitler in WW2.

It also replaces centuries of wars such as WW1, Napoleonic, Spanish Succession, Thirty Years War, Hundred Years War etc.

The UK has torn up the Good Friday Agreement.

That endeavoured to make some gesture to mollify the damage done to the people on this island by the centuries of plantations, the penal laws, the starvation of the famine, the masacres of Cromwell etc.

May the people of the UK be reconverted from the racist contempt they have shown in Brexit.

May was lucky to land at all!

She was scheduled to touch down at Baldonnell, but they couldn't guarantee she could take off again, as they're, emm, closed from dusk to dawn.

So she had to land c/o the DAA.


Memo to Putin - send in the paras at 7pm, should do the trick.
