The recession's silver lining

What’s that deafening whining noise you hear? It’s the sound of the economy grinding to a halt. And that gentle fluttering? The sound of chickens coming home to roost. For more than a year I've been forecasting that Ireland would slip into zero growth recession in 2008, while armies of ‘independent’ economic commentators were forecasting growth rates of up to 5%. Bit by bit these hired hacks, paid to talk up the economy, have been forced to admit the truth.

The only growth is in the dole queues and house repossessions. But most things have a silver lining, and these developments are no exception. Here let me quote Frederick Douglas, who said that “power concedes nothing without a demand. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them; and these will continue till they have resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they suppress.”

The number of unhappy people in Ireland will grow rapidly over the coming months, maybe even years. Their endurance will be tested. And that's the good bit. Shorn of their new-found wealth, sitting on negative equity, not working or working short time, people will have the time and lack of money to ponder on how it all went wrong.

Hopefully, they’ll see through the MSM bias, and the propaganda of the immigration industry. Hopefully, they’ll get angry. So angry that the powers Douglas referred to will get nervous and begin to yield.

Hopefully the new poor will see that billions of Euros of their tax monies are annually going to line the pockets of African despots and to finance a massive asylum scam. Hopefully they’ll realise that they can't get their kids into schools because their places are taken by immigrants. And even if they do get a place, they’ll realise that educational standards are plummeting as schools try to teach in a dozen different languages. Hopefully they’ll realise that mass immigration has lowered pay levels and reduced their chances of re-employment in a recession-bound economy.

And finally, I hope it dawns on them that the productive, hard-working, law-abiding immigrants will have gone elsewhere, while they (the new poor) are left supporting the detritus of the turd world.

So that's the potential silver lining. The Irish people might wake up to the fact that they’ve been the unwitting subjects of a massive social experiment. An experiment that has gone horribly wrong, contributing mightily to their current woes.

Roll on the revolution!

@Savant - I take it you are opposed to your government continuing to send Africa several million pounds every year, then?
Our tinpot dictators will be very, very unhappy, I can tell you!

And as far as African emigrants to Eire is concerned, don't tell me you dislike the values that multi-culti brings? :-)

Here in the UK we have a population of about 60 million and as such mass immigration will take time to have an effect (not that it already hasnt) in ireland with a population of 4 million I think we will see the back of ireland as we know it inside 30 years,unless of course the irish wake the hell up.

When I visited my aunt in Trim, I was amazed by the number of blacks in Eire. When one introduced himself as Patrick, I thought "geee whizz, these people really are integrating." I expect next the Old Shieling in Dublin will be having bongo bongo nights to make integration complete. And my ancestors fought to kick the English out!!! Wouldn't it be better to kick the blacks out and invite the English back? At least we speak the same language.
