Re: 'New Era' privatisation body to be headed by Fergus O'Dowd
And as an aside I notice Howlin said in his statement around NewERA that the government are hoping to use the National Pension Reserve Fund to 'promote growth' as well in the economy if those nice people in the IMF office will agree to that (which they won't).
Two things about that;
(1) That NPRF was looted by Lenihan to throw money at the bondholders of Irish banks so the money can't be used twice- if I recall correctly it once had 28billion euro in it before Lenihan stole most of it by ramming legislation through the Dail converting the NPRF to a 'Special Purpose Vehicle' for paying bondholders.
(2) Our friend Dr Eileen Fitzpatrick here is currently 'helping' that Special Purpose Vehicle which used to be the NPRF and here we have her being appointed to head the privatisation programme of state assets via NewERA.
Howlin and Kenny are bullshytting as badly as Lenihan did.
Think National. Act Local. Oh- and superstition is just the dark matter of human history.
