If only we'd voted no.
None of this would be happening.
Isn't that right POL?

Another one bites the dust:


A receiver has been appointed to the Hughes & Hughes chain of bookstores, which employs 225 people and has been in business for 26 years.

A statement said the company's directors had asked Ulster Bank Ireland Limited to appoint David Carson of Deloitte as receiver.

Hughes & Hughes said a collapse in consumer demand and competition from internet booksellers were the main factors in its decision.

It added that, as most of its business was coming through its airport stores, the business had been particularly badly hit by the collapse in passenger numbers passing through Dublin and Cork airports.

The company also said that, like other retailers, it had had difficulty renegotiating rents. 'Indeed the unwillingness to reduce rents has been in stark contrast to the approach of our employees who were willing to make the adjustments necessary to support the business, it said.

We'll see how great you are when the French and Germans get sick shit of bailing out economic shitholes like Greece, Portugal and Ireland and pull the plug on this euro sham and bring back the Franc and the Deutschmark

We should never have voted for Lisbon. I voted No. and the rest of the dopes in this country got fed up of voting so took the easy way out.

225 jobs lost at Hughes & Hughes

Friday, 26 February 2010 18:19

A receiver has been appointed to the Hughes & Hughes chain of bookstores, leading to the loss of 225 jobs at the company, which has been in business for 26 years. It is understood all of the shops have been closed.

A statement said the company's directors had asked Ulster Bank Ireland Limited to appoint David Carson of Deloitte as receiver. Hughes & Hughes said a collapse in consumer demand and competition from internet booksellers were the main factors in its decision.

It added that, as most of its business was coming through its airport stores, the business had been particularly badly hit by the collapse in passenger numbers passing through Dublin and Cork airports.

And they laughed and smirked at Sinn Fein,Declan Ganley and Jim Corr
Besmirched their good characters by calling them "headbangers"
A No vote would have garnered respect all over Europe but now we are cast adrift in a sea of debt with the Germans looking for any excuse to get rid of us.

Nigel Fagarge of UKIP had our welfare and interests at heart but what do we do ?
We throw it in his face and were sold a Europup.
Bring back the link to sterling and the gold standard.
