#Germany has been able to become a great exporting power, among other things, thanks to bribes, a practice so common for its large companies that until a few years ago they could even be deducted from taxes.
Only its giant Siemens has been discovered irregular operations worth about 420,000 million euros. Volkswagen has tricked millions of customers with the diesel engine scandal;
Many large German companies such as Deutsche Bank, Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom or Deutsche Pos, among others, have also led to major scandals and the biggest tax fraud in European history, the Cum-Ex case, was organized in Germany.

In this #COVID19 crisis, some worry about having a eugenics nutjob like Cummings in charge... Before rubbishing this as alarmist, please consider Charles Trevelyan, the Treasury official placed in charge of relief during the Irish famine in the1840s. ⬇️😠✊🦠 #ToriesOut 🇪🇺🇮🇪
We tend to assume that our government would *never* consciously do anything to damage its own people... Trevelyan, however, took the psychopathic view that the famine was divine intervention on the feckless poor... ⬇️ 😖✊🇪🇺🇮🇪 #history #famine #Ireland #capitalism
This was at a time when - even during the years of famine - Ireland was exporting around 300,000 tons of grain to England per annum. Fully *one million* Irish people are believed to have died due to the famine, and around two million emigrated. 😠✊🇪🇺🇮🇪 #resist #ToriesOut

1. This thread is for YOU. Consider reading if you want to EASILY understand why there is unprecedented, worldwide, mass confinement and quarantine going on around the world.
2. Since JFK's death in 1963 there has been a massive, hidden criminal conspiracy running our world.

Many world's leaders have been compromised to do the bidding of the ultra-rich and ruling class. We are ALL but mere pawns in their game of #Monopoly.
3. Consider using this free time you have to educate yourself on WHO the criminals we are fighting really are by watching this fascinating documentary that exposes their satanic plan to rule over us... #EverythingIsARichMansTrick!

“People are going and buying things and I understand it,” says @POTUS when asked about store shelves emptying.
He took the #coronavirus test last night, @POTUS tells reporters.

#Ireland Inc is not a friend of @POTUS. The Clintons/Soros cult have their tentacles in every Irish corridor of power and the entire establishment and media ridicule @realDonaldTrump daily. US Tech/Pharma are raping our country, taking away our free speech and abusing our taxes
Is @POTUS appraised of the scale of mass immigration in #Ireland and all the enemies of the US who now have Irish passports and can travel there? We also host the Euro HQ of the Muslim Brotherhood in Dublin and produce the 2nd highest number of jihadis of 26 countries. #WWG1WGA
This is how #Ireland works, @realDonaldTrump. Former corrupt billionaire #DenisOBrien who controls private media in Ireland is Clinton biggest Irish donor. He controls #Ireland Inc. They control him. They come here regularly and do what they like. #WWG1WGA #StPatricksDay

Tonight in Ireland #COVID19 has come into sharp focus. We sadly lost our first patient. The #WHO have declared a pandemic. On the front line it is a sober, yet determined time 1/
Walking through the hospital, to yet another preparatory meeting, I felt a sense of purpose from everyone I met. From cleaning staff to consultants, when we greeted each other, our eyes met for longer, saying everything, without a word 2/
The meeting tonight felt different. #COVID19 is here now, our wonderful colleagues from the Italian front line are sharing their stories. And crucially, their experience 3/

Today's 4km commute:

Aggressive middle aged man driving aggressively at back wheel, revving engine, beeping, slapping outside of his car door bcoz I was cycling defensively to avoid being doored on my left, & to prevent him from close passing on the right on a narrow street 1/9
When confronted I asked him if he knew it was a 30km zone.. "was barely doing 25km.." Exactly I said, 30km is a limit not a target. I'm doing 25km, hang back, wait, have patience before you kill someone.. "But ur in the middle of the road.." I am & with good reason I said.. 2/9
The driver's needless aggressiveness continued. Another male passing by started heckling me. "Just ignore him..He's doing nothing wrong.." Are u blind to aggressive behaviour or are u just indifferent to it as it doesn't effect you? Should I just accept abuse from angry men? 3/9

THREAD - Update on #covid19 #CoronavirusOutbreak #ireland We hope to hear conferences tomorrow from @WHO @HSELive with guidelines on where we go from here. Mass H2H transmission evident in many countries,including Italy. Italy was 1st country in Europe to close border w/China (1)
Why does Italy have so many cases and Ireland has none? Well Italy wisely began testing all pts presenting with flu like symptoms for #covid19, to see if evidence of H2H transmission, which they indeed did find. (2)
HSE currently only testing for #covid19 in pts with flu like symptoms AND travel hx to China or effected areas. Community acquired infection won't be picked up with these tests. Hence why we are not picking up on these cases. H2H transmission is undeniably occurring here too. (3)

#Ireland continues to inspire: left-wing

Bloody hell !
A #British #Tory MP #PririPatel suggesting the way to get a deal with the #EU is starve the people of #Ireland

it has emerged that former #Conservative Party minister Priti Patel suggested that the #UK should use the threat of food shortages in #Ireland
to persuade the #EU to drop the backstop demand.

The claims are described as outrageous in light of the suffering endured during the Great Famine - exacerbated by British trade policy - when up to a million people died.
Ms Patel comments are linked to a leaked report which said that there was the possibility that food exports to #Ireland could be disrupted in the event of a hard #Brexit.

Dublin's heart and charm is cluttered, cluttered with atmosphere not fecking 'quarters' with their chrome and their Costas. Dublin is a good second-hand shop, a Freebird records, Dandelion market, Kehoes, Mulligans, Marks Bros, where folk gather, share and hunt for diamonds....
It's Bewley's and the Savoy and tara street station and the piano at Pearse and Chapters bookshop and get the last of your wrapping paper and the walk to Croker and the canal end heaving and Patrick Kavanagh chilling on the canal..
It's the glow of the Aviva and the dart rattling in and the excitement of Grafton Street and the velvet of the Gaiety, the sticky floors and sounds of the Olympia and Thomas street with artists and those that might be drinking pints as the toilet rolls are sold on the street
