Laois/Offaly: Ray Fitzpatrick

We’ve had 90 years of capitalist administration, under the different management teams of Fianna Fail, Fine Gael, Labour, PD’s and the Greens.

We’ve had 90 years of capitalist administration, under the different management teams of Fianna Fail, Fine Gael, Labour, PD’s and the Greens.

While Fine Gael and Labour opportunistically opposed the budget in December they since have cynically connived with the government to ensure the Finance Bill, which enshrines the austerity cuts were rammed through before the election.

They all demanded a Yes for Lisbon claiming it would bring Jobs and Financial Stability. Ray Fitzpatrick was central in the fight against the Lisbon Treaty in Laois/Offaly, highlighting the lies of the €urocrats.

We got mass unemployment instead of jobs and €70 billion of bankers’ debt. Now they are asking you to trust them again.Vote for Ray Fitzpatrick and the Socialist Party/United Left Alliance based on their record of fighting for working people. If elected Ray will be part of a strong block of United Left Alliance TDs committed to fighting for you.

Review: Strumpet City

"Rashers, applying his mind to the matter, began at the beginning. Anything that lived; men, women, children; dogs, pigeons, monkeys; even lesser things like cockroaches, flies and fleas, had to eat. He had been of their company for long enough to sympathise with them all - the child rooting in the ashbin, the cat slinking along the gutter, the cockroach delicately questing along the wooden joins of the floor, its grey blue body corrugated with anxiety. These were sometimes his competitors, but more often his brothers. He could never watch a dog nosing in a bin without a feeling of sympathy and fellowship."

Council projects worth millions under threat

By Councillor Clare Daly

FINGAL COUNCIL’S 2009 Capital Programme could be cut by .55 million following a financial directive from the Department of the Environment that prohibits the Council from using its full reserve fund of developers’ levies. This insane advice from the government directs that “expenditure is funded from income received or due within the year” and would mean that only existing works which have contracts can go ahead.

Having cut the Council’s funding already by 7%, the government is now preventing Fingal from spending money contributed by people when they bought their houses during the development boom.
