I stayed up late last night to look at Vincent Browne there was a piece about the Quinn Insurance Group and there were two members of the Family on the panel. I just don’t know why we the ordinary citizens even have to put up with the crap and the mind-boggling excuses these two people were giving .every person in Ireland who has to take out insurance will now have to pay another 2.5% more on each policy for the next 12 years or more as a result of the miss management (at best) (I prefer to call it fraud) of the Quinn insurance with the appearance of 1,650,000,000 Euros black hole in the company’s finances. If fraud is proven then somebody must go to Jail!
But I am betting nobody will be found to be responsible and the family will just walk away leaving the rest of us pay the bills. Sean Quinn’s aspersion that he and members of his family were forced on to the Dole is just an insult to the intelligence of every Irishman and woman.
The full rigors of the law must be enforced on all those who would assume they are above the law .Yesterday I also heard that over 6000 people were sent to Jail because of non payment of fines where the justice in the Irish Law when Quinn and his pack can seemingly do as they please. If the Irish cops are not up to the task then the Government should call in the FBI or Scotland Yard fraud squad and establish where all the assets that now rightly belong to the Irish people.
By hiding their choice assets we the ordinary citizens are paying for their continued Jetsetter lifestyles. These are not the actions of heroes but rather self-serving leaches living off the backs of the taxpayers of this country .I have to pay my own debts and I cannot expect the people of Ireland to pay for a Jet set lifestyle or loss of my living standards so why are the Quinn Family any different??? Make no mistake the Quinn’s are just the tip of the iceberg.
