Owners of capital will stimulate the working classes to buy more and more expensive goods, houses and technology, pushing them to take more and more expensive credits, until their debts become unbearable. The unpaid debt will lead to the bankruptcy of banks, which will have to be nationalised and the State will have to take the road which eventually leads to communism."  

Karl Marx, 1867.

Thanks to Colm Cantillon for supplying the apropos quote (Colm, it is a real quote, isn’t it? You’re sure its not you pretending to be Karl Marx?)

There’s a thing on the radio over here (I’m in France) about Prince Harry (that's him above). Apparently he went to see some black comedian perform at a comedy club recently? Well, when they met afterwards it seems that Harry told the comedian that ‘he didn’t sound black’.   !

I wonder what he’ll think of to say when the current US President shows up for dinner at Buckingham Palace. (‘Pity you can’t rap.’)

This is rich: Roisin Shortall, the Dail Deputy whose participation in the Public Accounts Committee’s multi-million euros Ballymun Regeneration Project non-investigation was particularly notable, is moaning about the Government’s ‘sham investigation’ of Anglo Irish Bank! Now, I call that ‘Damning with faint damnation’.  

After a false alarm, which involved me momentarily believing the Carlow Nationalist would run an ad on my behalf asking folks to contact me with their planning stories, turns out the Nationalist isn’t in a position to help me out after all. But as more stories continue to swirl around about planning weirdness in Carlow, I’m sure some of the stuff that you’ve been emailing me about in the past few months will eventually find its way into the media. We live in hope.
