All State Land And Property To Be Sold To a Private Entity Called The Land Development Agency

category national | economics and finance | news report author Thursday April 21, 2022 23:19author by 1 of Indy Report this post to the editors

All State Land And Property To Be Sold To a Private Entity Called The Land Development Agency. Yes you heard this correctly.

The government is transferring all state land and property to a private entity called the Land Development Agency. We cannot allow this to happen. The Post Offices are semi-state owned but they are actually being starved of cash.

Richard Boyd Barret TD: In the Dail

Just wow is all I can say… of course the minister has already left the building. The boys are back in town. Fianna Fáil and the developers. This is a hyper-speed version of “The Mistakes of the Past”. This legislation is a heist, is a legal method to pillage the land bank, the entire public land bank. It’s absolutely extraordinary. It’s not just local authorities, it’s every single public sector and their land. Not just housing land, “any relevant land” you can look at the definition in the legislation. They can take any bit of land from any public body and they can do what they like with it.

Centre Ground Ep.20 – The hidden giveaway of our remaining state assets

https://youtu.be/XzGBv11aQDk Anne Kavanagh Announcement: (key points)
  • LDA are a private company, their activities are not subject to Dáil scrutiny.
  • The only opposition that exists is the “people before profit” group who are trying to alert people to what’s happening.
  • Normally people go through a post master to receive welfare or pension.
  • People are now receiving it directly into their bank account.
  • The Post Offices are being starved of that government revenue.
  • The government entered into a private arrangement with Bank of Ireland this week.
  • Going forward post offices will be selling bank products.
  • So what you see at the moment are banks closing down all of their branches.
  • The post masters have been kept out of the loop.
  • It is estimated the private deal between the government and the banks will amount to €1000+ revenue per post master per annum.

[3:00] Finbar Markey: Before going into the finer details of what this bill entails, I want to try and characterise this. It is the giveaway of the material existence of the state that is the Republic of Ireland. In the entire history of the state, nothing so shocking has ever been presented before Dáil Éireann. This Bill in itself is actually quite a small bit of legislation. It lists everything that comprises the material existence of the state to be given away for the profit of private developers.

This has been done under two guises. The 1st is the homeless and housing crisis. All of ideas around this repeat themselves over “building more housing” and integrating social classes. The ultimate goal is to privatise the entire state. So the state of Ireland as a material entity will not exist anymore.

Secondly it is being done under the guise of Covid and regulations. But bills like this are barely known by the public.

Richard Boyd Barret has flagged this and spoken out about this in the Dáil.
