Irlanda arruinada cada vez más, algunos no se la llevarán de arriba

Si han estado siguiendo el artículo que aumento cada día con noticias sobre la Guerra de Divisas, Irlanda empeora su situación por horas de una manera trágica. Ese país que siempre fue pobre y al que los canallas de la London School of  Economy y The Economist le inventaron el remoquete de Celtic Tiger se descompone como un absceso con gangrena.

Dublin admite que tendrá que meter 52.000 Millones de Euros para salvar bancos arruinados y evitar que quiebre el país.  AngloIrish le prestó a su director, Sean FitzPatrick un constructor, 83 millones de euros, lo que hasta en Latinoamérica lo llaman corrupción: se ha declarado en bancarrota.

Nos desangran

Unas cuantas cifras del horror irlandés

* 62.000 millones de euros le deben al Banco Central Europeo

* 35 mil millones (y creciendo) las pérdidas en Anglo Irish Bank –que tiene inversiones inglesas y alemanas

*  6 bancos grandes arruinados

* 34,2 mil millones el total recolectado en Irlanda por impuestos

* 6,2 Millones de personas viven en Irlanda -vive menos gente que en el siglo XIX, cuando la mitad los mataron de hambre

* 10.000 irlandeses desempleados nuevos cada semana

* 13,7% desempleo

* -65% depreciación de propiedad comercial, en algunos casos -90%

¿Puede un banco, el AngloIrish, arruinar un país entero?

Hicieron brutales recortes, el standard de vida de gente con empleo cae el 20%.  Lo que está ocurriendo en Irlanda casi se puede calificar de experimento, para que el nuevo gobierno Tory de Gran Bretaña aprenda en cabeza pelirroja de irlandés.  Inglaterra y España que vayan poniendo las barbas en remojo.

Les adjunto unas entradillas a diversos artículos en la prensa inglesa, búsquenlos si les interesa es muy instructivo.

☼  La ruina tras los recortes irlandeses

Ireland’s anger a taste of life after cuts
Population’s response to cuts in public sector wages and soaring unemployment will be scrutinised by UK leadership
Amelia Gentleman, Thursday 30 September

«You can feel anger towards the developers, the bankers, but that doesn’t provide a constructive solution.» Most unions, he says, have advised their members: Don’t rock the boat or we might all sink. «I think the public understand that to protest will make the situation worse,» he says.

Take Sarah, a 44–year-old single mother and care assistant in a residential home for adults with learning difficulties. In the space of two years she too has seen her wages drop by around 20%, she calculates, leaving her with a €250 (£217) hole in her monthly take-home pay of around €1,200. As her salary has fallen, she has found that her workload has increased substantially because the workforce of nurses and care assistants at the home has dropped by about 25%.   …  At home, she has stopped taking holidays and doesn’t know when she will be able to get her car mended. It has been parked, unusable, outside her house for the past eight months. She shops around for discount items and cannot remember the last time she took her 11-year-old daughter out for an excursion. She has also seen a reduction in child benefit. The only indirect positive from the austerity measures has been that the busy pub she lives next to has seen a huge fall in business («People are too poor to go out socialising,» she says) so the noise levels have been reduced.

Gerry Adams, who travelled from Northern Ireland to support Sinn Féin colleagues and lead Wednesday’s protest. «What the government is doing here is totally and utterly mad. They’re bailing out the banks and the citizens are going to have to pick up the tab. Public services are going to be sliced, at a time when half a million people are on the dole,» he says.

«At the height of the Celtic Tiger party – say, mid-2007, I was on a €30k wage – a low wage for a White Collar professional job, by anyone’s standards, as a Dublin Bus driver started at 37k, with many people paid substantially more. Now, I’m on 18k – a 40% pay and time cut – and facing into the yawning gulf that represents the country’s national debt.

Two years ago, my quiet home town, set in an ordinary part of Ireland, with about 3,000 people, had about 300 unemployed people in it. Today, that figure’s at 2,500 unemployed, as all of the factories and industries sank without trace, taking down all the small shops, traders, and 200-year-old family businesses in the area with them. They’d battled through the Great Depression; some stores had made it through The Great Famine, but nothing could stop them from the ruin cast upon them when the Celtic Tiger turned »

«You’ll be fine in the UK, Ireland is, and will be for some time, a basket case because unlike the UK we don’t actually manufacture anything. All the time during the Celtic tiger era I knew lots of people who had well paid jobs, big cars, large mortgages. The problem was they didn’t work for a company that made anything: computers or cars or mobile phones, they simply had jobs that involved them moving figures around a spreadsheet or they worked in a construction related area. There was simply no end product (other than houses). It’s so much worse that the 80’s; in the 80’s people were poor but and no debt, today people are becoming poorer by the hour but still have a massive debt to service. It’s bleak folks, just thank your lucky stars you live in a country that has the ability to get itself out of a hole. Ireland doesn’t, and this time we can’t blame anybody else but ourselves.»

«I just feel sad, because It seems to me, that once more history repeats itself. In the 1840s and 50s, millions of Irish people were essentially left to their terrible fates because it seemed more important at the time that the status quo, and the political philosophy known as laissre faire was maintained at all costs; that is exactly what is happening now (we are not starving of course, well not yet), except this time its not the Brits, its our own homegrown bastards that are fucking over their own people in the name of Banks and whatever other pseudo-economic bullshit they are using for this raid on our national wealth. That is very hard to take for a people who are noted for patriotism, to realize that its Irish people doing this to other Irish people.»

Over 100,000 Irish workers expected to leave country before 2012
Jobless rate of 13.6% means return to Ireland’s culture of emigration as fears of a double dip recession set in
Henry McDonald in Dublin, Thursday 30 September 2010
More than 100,000 workers are expected to leave to find jobs before next year ends – a return to the emigration which used to be as much a part of the Irish experience as Gaelic games, a Catholic upbringing, or a reputation for the «Craic».

When the economy became the fastest growing in Europe the Irish diaspora headed home, to be followed by an influx of workers from countries such as (Spain) Poland and Lithuania.

Last year Irish migration to the United States increased by 12%.

In the north and the south, there is a danger that the unskilled and semi-skilled unemployed, the sector least able to migrate, could become a new pool of disaffection that might be exploited by dissident Republican terrorists on either side of the Irish border.

Hedge funds hold Ireland to ransom over Anglo Irish Bank bail-out
Hedge funds are holding the Irish government to ransom over its €30bn (£26bn) bail-out of one of the country’s biggest lenders, Anglo Irish Bank.
By Harry Wilson, Daily Telegraph, London
The investors are attempting to force the Irish authorities to pay them more for the debt they hold in Anglo Irish Bank and say if their demands are not met they could trigger a default crisis.

Amenazan con hacer quebrar el banco si no les pagan lo que exigen

The London and US-based hedge funds are fighting moves to pay them no more than current market prices for their holdings of junior debt in Anglo and are understood to be prepared to take the Irish government to court.
Anglo junior debt is trading in a range of 23 to 25 cents in the euro and the investors are thought to be looking for a payout of 35 to 40 cents. However, the authorities are unwilling to offer a premium to the market price, according to a source close to the Irish government.

☼  La Industria irlandesa camino a desaparecer

Irish manufacturing sector shrinks

Ireland, reeling from a €50bn (£43bn) banking bailout, received another blow when its manufacturing sector shrank for the first time in seven months

Se deteriora y contrae la industria, disminuyen fuertemente las exportaciones –esa solución mágica para curar los problemas de los países arruinados e insolventes y con mala base industrial, como España, Irlanda, etc.

☼  Ideólogos neo-fascistas quieren destruir a Irlanda –y al Reino Unido, al euro y a la Unión Europea

Iceland’s financial cold shower has put it on the road to recovery, while Ireland has gone from crisis to crisis, with no end in sight.

Sam Bowman is research manager of the Adam Smith Institute

Demostrado queda, por su boca murió Bowman, que esto no es economía, esto es ideología fascista. Mentira enorme que Islandia esté recuperando -el Parlamento abrió esta semana, y tuvieron que huir todos por la puerta de atrás porque la gente indignada los cagó a huevazos.

Irlanda ha implementado ciertos duros cortes, y la gente está sufriendo como muestra lo que escribí, y está inquieta.  Si hacen caso a los fascistas del Adam Smith Institute, si les hacen caso en Inglaterra, correrá la sangre por las calles.  Ellos y los de la LSE, tranquilos en su casa a ellos no les van a partir la cabeza en una manifestación, luego cuando la ruina sea terrible, dirán «es que no hicieron bien esto, es que aquello.»

☼  Si Irlanda quiebra arrastra a España, por el dinero que metió la banca española

Irlandeses y portugueses deben a la banca española casi 100.000 millones

MADRID, ABC . Los préstamos al sector privado representan casi el 63% del total, mientras que el sector público apenas acumula el 6%.   El principal problema de las entidades financieras en estos países no lo compone el endeudamiento público sino el privado, cuyas manos adeudan 62.500 millones a la banca española, el 63% de los créditos realizados en estos países. De esta cantidad, 50.500 millones pertenecen a deudas contraídas por particulares y empresas portuguesas y el resto, 12.000 millones, por sus homólogos irlandeses. A esta cifra hay que sumar, además, la exposición a los bancos de ambos países —privados en buena parte—, que alcanza los 7.000 millones de euros en total (el 7%); 5.000 millones en el caso luso y 2.000 correspondientes a entidades del «Tigre Celta». Otros créditos (22.000 millones) se reparten entre otras exposiciones no detalladas en el informe del BIS, Banco Internacional de Pagos, Basilea, Suiza.
El Santander acumula 66.660 millones de euros procedentes de Tesoros o entes públicos de toda Europa y, en concreto, en Portugal, es donde más se juega, pues ha invertido más de 5.000 millones.

BBVA, Banco Popular, Banco Sabadell y Banco Pastor cada uno le han prestado fortunas a Irlanda y sobre todo  a Portugal, mientras no le dan créditos a los españoles.

☼  Corralito ya es en Europa Oriental. Ya hay corralito en Ucrania y los países bálticos; van al banco a sacar de su cuenta corriente y se lo dan a puchitos como en la Argentina de Duhalde.  Y ya casi pasa en España, incluso si te conceden un crédito para comprar una propiedad pasan meses hasta que efectivamente recibes el préstamo; lo sé por experiencia familiar.

CONCLUSIÓN.  Todavía es pronto para asegurar que van a fusilar a mucha gente en Irlanda, es cosa de esperar unas semanas a  la quiebra inevitable de ese país engañado por los inescrupulosos.

PS.  Lo siento, es demasiado largo el material que tengo para traducirlo, es lo que pasa si Ud no sabe leer inglés, que no se va a enterar de nada de lo que pasa en el mundo.  Es asombroso ver hundirse un país que los economistas ponían de ejemplo a imitar hace un año, de ejemplo de cómo capear la crisis hace tres días.
