‘A Financial Transaction Tax in Europe Now!’ -Party of European Socialists (PES) September 23, 2010

Was contacted by PES advertising their site.
Had a look and found this which was launched recently. “A Financial Transaction Tax in Europe Now!”.
PES is the Party of European Socialists, The Labour Party are affiliated to it.
Their website is worth a visit

As they say themselves…
The Party of European Socialists (PES) brings together the Socialist, Social Democratic and Labour Parties of the European Union (EU). Its aims include:

* the strengthening of the socialist and social democratic movement in the Union and throughout Europe;
* the development of close working relationships between the national parties, the national parliamentary groups, the Parliamentary Group of the PES, PES Women, ECOSY, and other socialist and social democratic organisations;
* the definition of common policies for the European Union; and
* the adoption of a common manifesto for elections to the European Parliament.

“Are you Being Served?” -Young Fine Gael give out about the Banks in 1990. January 29, 2010

“Are you Being Served?” ask Young Fine Gael in 1990. The Banks should look after students, giving them loans, according to Young Fine Gael around 1990.
In my day the banks looked after students by giving them a free fiver when they opened an account.
I’m sure the banks parsimony changed with the Celtic Tiger, Students were probably given mortgages by the banks then!
