Ben was interviewed today by Sean Lawlor of Phoenix FM. Sean took an interest in People For Economic Justice when the video Constitution Halts Sheriff went viral on the internet earlier this year. Over the course of the interview Sean and Ben discuss the grossly inappropriate behaviour by KPMG. They discuss The National Lottery’s apparent lack of concern regarding this behaviour. They discuss the banking crisis in general. They discuss mortgage arrears and those dealing with them.
Also discussed is Direct Democracy Ireland. Direct Democracy is a political policy that allows citizens of an applicable country to call for a referendum at any time, on any topic, by simply gathering enough signatures of citizens who wish to see such a referendum commence. This was a power granted to the Irish people in the first version of the Irish Constitution: Bunreacht Na hÉireann. This was removed from the Constitution (without a referendum) in the early years of the Irish Freestate. It is currently operated in Switzerland to great effect.
The Interview With Phoenix FM
We would like to thank Sean and Phoenix FM for his interest, professionalism and for his helping to spread People For Economic Justice’s message. It is a pity KPMG and The National Lottery opted not to comment on the topic on air. Phoenix FM attempted to contact both at the same time as he contacted People For Economic Justice. They received a very short response from The National Lottery:
Many thanks for your email.
The National Lottery will not be commenting on this matter.
Eleanor did not give her title or position so we are uncertain as to what department of The National Lottery she represents. KPMG declined to respond.
