    The Vita Cortex campaign to muddy the waters is now in full swing:
    VITA Cortex has warned the jobs of its 60 remaining staff are being put at risk by the "negative publicity" from the ongoing sit-in by its former workers in Cork.
    In a statement issued last night, the company said media reports of the sit-in were undermining management’s efforts to "maintain the existing levels of business and the employment needed to service it. which is heading to further potential job losses in the very near future". 

"We restructured the group, resulting in the closure of the loss making division at Vita Cortex Cork, in order to save the group as a going concern and protect the 60-plus jobs which remain," it said.
    http://www.examiner.ie/ireland/publi...ta-179232.html

    Jim Power, spokesman for the Cork workers, said today on the News at One that Vita Cortex only employed 32 workers in Cork, 8 to 10 in Athlone and less than a dozen in Belfast.
    Some of the Cork workers will be on the Late Late tonight, btw.

    Michael McGrath has suddenly woken up and found himself in Cork in the year 2012
    http://www.fiannafail.ie/news/entry/...mbcM70.twitter

    One interesting insight into the Vita Cortex accounts in the press release:
    Deputy McGrath stated, “Now that Vita Cortex has formally claimed inability to pay the redundancy due to the 32 former workers, the Department of Social Protection needs to thoroughly assess the application and conclude whether or not it stands up. The latest set of publicly available abridged accounts for Vita Cortex (Ind.) Limited shows that the company made a profit of €366,000 during the 16 months to the end of April 2010.

    “The accounts also show that the company was owed €1.6m by its debtors at the time, including an amount of €712,000 due from Web Circle Limited – a company of which Mr. Ronan was a Director and his family owned a sizeable share – for ‘management charges’. The question should be answered as to whether these management charges have since been paid to Vita Cortex (Ind.) Limited by Web Circle Limited.

    Don't worry, it'll be on Player later and well worth watching too.
    They did themselves proud. Calm and articulate and a step by step explanation of what led up to the sit in and everything since. Incredibly impressive people.
    Tellling that the interview was conducted with the Vita Cortex workers sitting in the audience while Z list nonentities on either side of the segment got the full red carpet treatment.

    They were magnificent tonight.

    I think the next step has to be to link-in with others in the same boat and push a boycott of everything Johnny Ronan.
