Alchemy Radio jumps straight into the meat of things in their interview with Ben Gilroy. They immediately begin to discuss the lawsuit People For Economic Justice are bringing against the Office of the Taoiseach. Ben also jumps straight into the power of Direct Democracy, a power that was removed from the Irish Peoples Constitution (Bunreacht Na hÉireann).
During the early parts of the interview, Ben goes through the main allegations he and People For Economic Justice will be bringing against the government in the court case. They are:
- The actions of The Taoiseach and The Minister of Finance in paying back unsecured debts to private banks whom took part in illegal activities is repugnant to the Constitution of Ireland.
- Said actions are a violation of the Constitution as these actions was convened during a night meeting with members of the last Fianna Fáil government, without the full support or knowledge of the Cabinet or Séanad.
- It is against best practices of international law, as it is an odious debt, because it was taken on by a Fianna Fáil regime that at best had a dubious leader and corrupt members as outlined in the Mahon Tribunal at the cost to the state in excess of €500,000,000, and it did not benefit people, instead becoming one of the most taxing debts ever since the formation of the state.
- The defendants do not have a mandate from the People of Ireland for such actions, but in fact they have put the promises made to the people second, behind promises made to the banking sector.
- The debt precipitates from an insoluble obfuscation of the currency, which perpetually multiplies debt on the populous, in such a way that eventually we the people can only suffer a terminal sum of debt, which makes it mathematically impossible even to maintain a vital circulation there after.
- Receiving bailouts from member states of the European Union or the European Central Bank to pay back private corporations is in conflict with the Lisbon Treaty.
