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.

The comment that started the campaign for me: extract from The Irish Examiner, Oct 3rd.
Yesterday’s Cabinet meeting did not discuss the proposals made in a report submitted by an advisory group on tax and social welfare to Social Protection Minister Joan Burton.

"I haven’t seen this report, I haven’t read this report. This report has not come to Government," Taoiseach Enda Kenny said when asked about the proposal in the Dáil.

He said budget decisions would be made by the Cabinet...

Oh God Anthony I hope not...how are people supposed to survive? we have NO more to give......simple as that...if they lived in the real world like the rest of us they would realise that...instead they live in a world where they can run up an expenses bill of 750,000 euros on 'expenses' (work related expenses that is) when they are on their holidays!!!!!

Gold help the children of Ireland. Cuts in their welfare, their education, their working life is extended, hospital waiting lists get larger and larger, and by the time they are of age to draw a pension, only the politicians will be entitled to one. WAKE UP and take a look at the consequences of each cut. My advice to the children of today, stay healthy, be super intelligent, and maybe you may have a job on finishing school.

Crazy to think that something that I set up, spur of the moment, feeling pretty annoyed with the Government, thinking I'll try at least get 1,000 signatures has turned into 23,000 signatures on Friday night and although I've tried hard to get a response from Government Ministers I haven't so much as received a 'thank you for your email' reply....now its turned into hopefully a peaceful march and I still intend to email all these signatures to every Minister that has an email address even if...
