18-09-2008 00:53I am writing down this pages to announce that I have expropriated 492,000 euros to 39 banks through 68 loan deals. If we include interest on arrears, the present amount of debt is over 500,000 euros which I will not pay.
17-09-2008 22:32After a truly momentous day in Erris yesterday,things are much calmer this morning. The Solitaire has been confirmed to be stationery in Killybegs Co Donegal. Police presence in the area is still very heavy this morning although the general atmosphere (aside from at the compound gates) is slightly less tense. Maura Harrington continues her courageous hunger strike at the compound gates with round the clock solidarity from both locals and the camp. It is still not clear how exactly the Solitaire sustained the damage to its "stinger" The stinger is DEFINITELY slightly damaged in one section however this reporter can confirm that it was not so damaged on Tuesday night when it arrived in Broadhaven Bay and that conditions all throughout Tuesday night were absolutely calm both at land and on sea (remembering that the Solitaire can operate in extremely heavy seas unhindered due to its size). The cause of the damage is a heavily speculated upon matter and I will not add to other than the fact that AllSeas Ltd may be contractually relieved from its obligations under a damge clause in the contract.

17-09-2008 17:18New "bailouts", new sudden mergers . . . .curtains ARE dropping on the "wizards" of the "City" - DESPITE THE WORDPLAY*. The actual public are sussing it, without the need for "-isms". That IS a moment.
( * e.g. for "correction" see under "total f****** disaster, AGAIN" , etc.)
McCains slamming of wall street, in phrases most leftists mightnt have used 10 years ago, the fact that BOTH PARTIES have pledged to clean up Washington, the SNPs naming of the speculators as "spivs" . . . . these are signs of where the ELECTORATES are - despite the frequently bought or blindspotted media echo-chamber - of ALL alleged political position, often these "marginal" "independent" media too.
The fact that people have had the "spare" cash from a few of those gravy-train instruments (these days, "loopholes", etc ) kept a lot of people from seeing that in the past - but after this - it aint mere "politics" - these scams are seen as either criminal stupidity, criminal negligence, or plain criminal.
