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

Thank you, Annemarie.

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...
The country and people are suffering enough now don't take the food from the childrens mouth, disgusting enough is enough we should be on the streets now like in Greece and Spain robbers IMF and the politicians are only lap dogs for the bankers....
ye typical irish people we are all talk and no action ..pity we couldnot take a stand to this like the old age pensioners and the farmers they standup for what they believe in ..not like us ..we are a nation of cowards when it comes to things like this ..bet they are just laughing at us ..why cant we just stand up and say enough is enough.
well it only takes one to make a stand then the rest will follow ..
keep up the good work..take from the poor to keep the millionaires wealthy..rotten to the core..but sure they were voted in to look after themselves.
Thanks for your support Paddy, its hard enough being a parent without them making it even more difficult....
Peggy Power we're not spoilt for choice unfortunately! I didn't vote FG tbh Enda Kenny always came across as very fake to me, never believed a word out of his mouth pre election...but who did we have that we could trust in? nobody....
I think all irish mothers need to march on the dail to show solidarity its the only way look at the power of the pensioners re the medical card fiasco!
definitely march to the dail
we cant just sit back and allow this to happen! We should take a leaf out of the OAPS books when they marched to the Dail over their medical cards been taken they got results and rightly so!
Took mine from me last year even though Sean's in school still. Don't start me Christine
If the pensioners can do it then we have no excuse. We will march for this one Christine :)
The Irish should not sit back on this 1 every women and father should get up and help put a stop to this government taking any more money from us
Well we need to do something were d oaps right didn't they get to keep there money , people should get ready to march at d dail really
Thanks Irene any 1 else willing to get out and march well if u want to keep ur money
I like many of my friends are really struggling. The budgets in the last few years have really affected my household budget I have tightened my belt and budgeted to the best I can but cant do with anymore cutbacks like WTF world are theses dicks in the dail living in wake up this is the real world and I do work and pay my taxes.
Everyone should share this link on there page everyday for the next few weeks so all their friends see it and sign.
Totally agree Brenda. It's another ridiculous plan by a shower who haven't a clue how to run the country. So maddening. Up der with their big salaries nd allowances!!!!
