How many times have you despondently used the term “one law for them and another law for the rest of us”? Those of us who are awake in Ireland are sick to the teeth of watching justice being subverted by the very people who are meant to make justice, administer justice and enforce justice.
We have witnessed ridiculously lenient sentences given to bankers for billion euro fraud which bankrupted our nation, where a judge stated that prison would be a very upsetting experience for such bankers and only two weeks ago, another 3 banking criminals were sent to the cushy semi open prison at Mountjoy’s Training Unit only hours into their 2 and 3 year sentences. Not even a prisoner beginning a 3 month sentence for non payment of fines would have such luck. We are sick to the teeth of learning about penalty points being unlawfully removed for judges, TDs, state solicitors, well connected wealthy people, corrupt journalists and sainted celebrities. When a journalist attempted to write an article in the public interest highlighting a serving Garda Commissioner having penalty points removed, she was promptly dismissed from her long serving employment. This is just a taste of what corruption is like in Ireland and it has now reached dangerous totalitarian levels.
But the time for talking is now over. The time for ‘giving out’ down in the pub has long past. The time for shrugging our shoulders with defeatist phrases of “ah well sure what can we do?” is certainly long past it’s sell by date and the time for writing silly, meaningless and grumpy letters to the Irish Times is now gone forever. THE TIME FOR DIRECT ACTION IS NOW!
As a result of the state’s criminally corrupt actions against a number of people in different parts of Ireland in recent and not so recent times, this organisation ‘ACT – Anti Corruption Taskforce’ has emerged. There are now a rapidly growing number of people throughout this land who are no longer prepared to shrug their shoulders and allow criminals masquerading as lawyers, politicians, judges, Gardai or other senior civil servants to run roughshod over the ordinary people of Ireland. We mean business this time and here is why.
There will be no more silent assemblies outside Leinster House in the downpours of rain, while the political establishment laugh their heads off at us while they stagger around the subsidised Dail Bar. THIS TIME WE WILL TURN UP AT THE HOMES OF CORRUPT POLITICIANS AND SEE IF THEY LAUGH THEN?
There will be no more complaints to the Law Society, which means being driven around in circles for 5 and 10years while they laugh their heads off at us at the annual Rotary Club dinner. THIS TIME WE WILL TURN UP AT THE HOMES OF CORRUPT LAWYERS AND JUDGES AND SEE IF THEY LAUGH THEN.
There will be no more complaints to the Garda Siochana Ombudsman Commission (GSOC) where such complaints will be the subject of practical office jokes in the company of Paul Williams at the Garda annual dinner. THIS TIME WE WILL TURN UP AT THE HOMES OF CORRUPT SENIOR GARDAI AND SEE IF THEY LAUGH THEN.
There will be no more complaints to the Press Council or the Broadcasting Complaints Authority, where such complaints will ignite rapturous laughter and sneering from the likes of Mick Clifford and Miriam O’ Callaghan. THIS TIME WE WILL TURN UP AT THE HOMES OF CORRUPT JOURNALISTS AND BROADCASTERS AND SEE IF THEY LAUGH THEN.
There will be no more controlled opposition style protests and marches against the corruption which is destroying our nation’s spirit, because that is what the corrupt establishment want us to do and that is why they are having a laugh at us the ordinary people of Ireland. Instead, WE WILL TURN UP AT THE HOMES OF THOSE CORRUPT IN SOCIETY AND SEE IF THEY LAUGH THEN.
If you want to be involved in a hands-on approach to fighting corruption in our society please join with us. We meet each Saturday in Athlone, Co. Westmeath for the purposes of planning strategy and we intend taking that fight against corruption to a higher level than what was ever attempted before. There will be regular actions undertaken over the next few months, all of which will be lawful, legal but effective. We need to get the word out that some of the most powerful people in our society, those who make decisions that affect our every day lives, are corrupt to the core and are nothing less than criminals.
If you want to do your bit to help end the situation of “ONE LAW FOR THEM AND ONE LAW FOR US” then please share this post far and wide and join with us at ACT – Anti Corruption Taskforce.
