Time to legally challenge the ECB in the ECJ

Why was Finance Minister Michael Noonan’s evidence to the banking enquiry not given prior to Jean-Claude Trichet’s visit? It confirms the belief that Ireland was coerced by the ECB into breaking one of capitalism’s basic laws: bankruptcy.

Two more laws were broken: coercion and extortion. This extortion will continue for generations, by way of austerity measures upon the citizens of Ireland. It is time our government got off its knees and challenged the ECB in the European Courts of Justice.

We are entitled to know who Trichet and our European masters are protecting. We have ‘bought the rights’ to see the list of those involved in the buying and selling of Anglo Bonds, before and after the collapse.

We are being manipulated by global banks and investment institutions, which has resulted in Ireland landing in the equivalent of a debtor’s prison.
