they would be better off going after the people living abroad using an Irish address & not giving one cent of their money here..
ursela i totally agree!!!
Tanx Helen it's so annoying the amount of people using their parent's addresses that don't live here & the Non-Nationals that never gave one cent here entitled to it without any questions & us having to nearly beg for it ALL WRONG I think anyway
please god the government make the right decision for our children and not for their greed!!
OUR Children don't count Helen they are the one's that will suffer b4 this petition I've sent umpteen letters about the amount of Bogus people claiming child benefit & they didn't do a thing to rectify it but I assure you us REAL parent's in our own country will be the 1st people they hit with this fiasco..Time to look abroad first thats their answer
i agree with you too,hoe many people that dont live here but claim this money,find them and stop it
5% of Irish citizens have 135 billion euro in Irish banks and pay no tax what ever to the Irish state, because they have moved there business abroad and only live in Ireland part of the year to avoid paying taxes. These are the people that sit down with our government and advise them on how to run our country.Our politicians are sycophants to these 5% rich and powerful tax dodgers .
Dead right Jeremiah & the brains behind all this scam is allowing this elusive tax band like loads of authors & musicians here live SCOT FREE & yet all their money is located abroad..Time I either start writing crap like some of them or Sing like crap like the others I will be very very rich indeed..This country is full of artists..YUP SCAM ARTISTS
well with respect I'm well aware we are all born somewhere BUT ur missing the point it's about thousands of Bogus people using Irish addresses & DO NOT live here yet are claiming C.A. nothing to do with other countries or employment abroad thats not my point..I know people using their parents addresses to claim maybe US Irish are sick of being grateful to the un-grateful!!
IMHO the problem isn't people abroad claiming it. Its billionaire bondholders that wrecked the economy and their servants in the Dail. Their are of course a few billionaires who also don't actually live abroad but claim to and avoid tax. If we buy into that red herring put out by the government and the media (most of which is owned by those billionaires) then we only allow them to divide and rule when ordinary working people and the poor need to stand in solidarity no matter where they were born.
Enda Kenny just came out there and said, when asked about cutting the child benefit 'we don't have money to throw around' and said we shouldn't forget that this country is in financial dire straits.....what the hell does that have to do with the children of this country? and seriously 'throw around' think more along the lines of helping to feed/clothe/school our kids since your ensuring that while wages are stagnant everything else is going up! cloud cuckoo land he lives in I'm sure of it! ;(
Thanks Marie, just looking into how I'm going to get all these signatures up to that crowd up in dublin...if I could manage it all I'd like to hand it in personally...they need to know how angry and frightened people really are...they don't seem to have a clue!
he had 18.1 Billion to throw at Bond Holders this year alone
I know Paul its a disgrace, shameful.....picking on the vulnerable in Society seems to be this Governments main agenda.....keep sharing, inviting friends to sign as I will be presenting this petition to those that need to know the real truth!
do they even care how angry and frightened people are ???
they threw the money around,now expect us to suffer,its no better than an alcoholic father drinking the families money then beating them when theres no dinner!!!
Well we can either moan and groan and do nothing or do something, anything to show them how we feel.....I don't know if it will change anything but I'm not sitting back and doing nothing anymore...
Why not hand them in at the protest against the budget,
Gov Have Money For AIB And There Own Huge Wages . Top People Bleeding This Country Snow White,
they shit on us the people because they can get away with it
The Country is destroyed! Why are we so patient with the people who run our country for us? We need to empower ourselves and not put up with this oppressive regime that governs us. Enough is enough!
Agree Robin....we have to draw the line somewhere!
Ya but when is this going to stop?? We need to get off our butts and do something!!
Robin Hill hopefully this petition will be going to Dublin, hopefully I won't be alone on the day I go there with it, a little protest march to the dail is a start...thats getting off our butts!
Fair play to you Naaemarie.
its absolutely disgraceful hitting the already venerable low income families or loan parents who totally rely on the child benefit to pay the likes off light an heat bills or even basic shopping. i don see them bringing it in like it is in other countries that if your a higher earner your not entitled to it think in all fairness its fairer cos they way they are thinkin is makin the poor poorer an rich richer but then in all fairness why wouldn't they. they themselves rarely take pay...

bear the brunt off budgets unlike us living in fear off the next one.
Well said! Theie driven by greed. Few people will be seeing the ghosts of christms past this year. Dunno how their conscience lets them sleep at night!
Every single parent is struggling as it is we dont need this on top of everything else..a lot of us r trying to get work but no joy..its a disgrace to put us under more pressure struggling to pay r bills and put food on d table
absolutely Tracie this is our children's welfare we are talkin about in all fairness. and lets be honest if Ireland had a better system in place like dew do in America for men here they can be sperm donor.s and leave the responsibility off rearing kids to mother financially and every other way i think there should be also somethin put into legislation where by men should be made support there kids no questions. we do!! but here we have to battle in an out off long drawn out court battles its disgrace .
Our Government does not care about it's people, and Never will, it will always cut and cut and cut at the bottom. never will they cut at the top. never ever. Our living costs is going up up and they don't care..........
We have to try at least to make them stop and see what is going on in the 'real world' though Sinead...thats what I'm trying to do here and hopefully all those who feel like I do will help....
Well the next time i see Enda Kenny in super value Castlebar,i shall be having a few words
Do hun, don't hold back either!
I shall not. I will not care who hears or see me,I'm sick of it.
I've moved my target for signatures out to 5000 since the target of 1000 has been reached and passed! I found this link on the internet also which is great http://www.thejournal.ie/oireachtas-panel-findings-593539-Sep2012/.
well done Annemarie!!
Thanks Margaret - I'm going to keep this going and before Xmas go up to Dublin and hand them all these signatures and these comments...have to do something they can't keep getting away with treating us like dirt!
Signed to this a few days ago and like you will keep sharing and posting Annemarie.
Well done! Looks like you will have 5k by tomorrow.
Really getting sick of this country, pinalizing our children now
keep sharing this cause Anita and get people to sign, its our way of letting them know how we truly feel about their disgusting tactics in Government!
did yis hear how much they claimed 4 expenses 4 the month of august over 700,000,,, disgusting
sickening Louise which is why we can't sit and do nothing....keep sharing, getting signatures and we land them with a grand big book of names that disagree with their greed in trying to take from our children!
They werent even working in August Anita.
probably claiming for new beds and bed covers for all the sleeping they were doing over the Summer!
Ah it's disgusting carry on, makes me sooo f**king angry.... And they say the children are the future of the country but yet there making their starts in life depressing and miserable.
times are changing and i really do hope that the people realise their power and that they are the ones that elect these false prophets to their positions of power in the 1st place... it seems they are intent on making the rich richer and the poor poorer... we are the 99% and we do matter.... and to start penalising our children for the mistakes and the bad debt incurred by the crooked bankers.... just wont wash with us...
HI there, I'll be on local radio tomorrow discussing child benefit, lets try and get those few extra signatures to bring the total to 28,000, this petition will be presented to Joan's crew in Social protection if not to Joan herself (hopefully) so please keep sharing and getting people to join in and try and stop the Government from cutting child benefit and tearing families apart. Thank you, Annemarie.
wot time u on annemarie?
oh sometime after 9am hun....
Well done Annemarie!
great stuff we have exceeded 28,000 signatures!!!
You're great AM not sitting and moaning but standing up and doing something well done you

Well done Anne Marie for been the voice of the people who need this benefit... hope this so call government listen... what time are you on air???
Some time after 9am AM...hopefully I won't get all nervous and jumble up my words....in which case I'll be in the first pub I see open by 11am!!!
they would cut us loan parents but I bet the goverments wages r NOT been touched. it will come a time when our kids r starving and on the streets because of the goverment its a joke. I bet enda kennys WIFE still saves her child benifit every month..
Well said :0)
ah its a joke hun this country is a fucking joke they cut loan parents , and the back to school .
i know, its discraceful, why dont they get rid of their big cars n houses n drop their wages n all but sure that'll never happen. id love to see them live on the dole!!!!
plus i got a letter few weeks ago sayin that fuel allowance will be paid a week later this year cuz they "made a mistake" and overpaid a week last year. first of all they already cut how long u get it for by 2 months n now their taking another week cuz THEY made a mistake!! its all political bollox!!
Why don't they take ther own expense and put it back into paying the big debt this country has instead off taking from the children that didn't cause this crises they did would like them to live on a working family wage paid bills feed and support the family's see how they would manage
Nicola they seem to live on a different planet from us which is why I decided that enough was enough, they have been taking from me and my husband for the last few years now but I draw the line at taking from my kids...or from kids already on borderline poverty...who do they think they are? Thats why I'm doing this, keep spreading the word we can at least try and make them see how we are feeling...and what is really going on in the 'real' world....
So true annemarie we may start standing up because they can't keep taking from the poor and let the rich the richer well done on setting this page up won't be Long till up reach the target of 5000 plus more with it will keep on spreading
It would be great if you could send them up all the comments we've made too Annemarie, fair play to you, lets hope we'll be listened to.
