The Direct Influence Of Bill Gates In Ireland…
…Gates is so influential in Ireland that he gets a private audience with the Taoiseach and President whenever he arrives on the island. This should be questioned but instead it is glamourised. Why?
To begin with, Gates owns more than 20 billion in Irish bonds. In fact, we are told he owns more Irish bonds than his holdings of any other countries bond-holdings. He owned them even before the 2007 financial crash and bought more after. The scariest part of it all is that he owns stakes: in various state organs including: our media, our telecommunication system, our health systems, our schools, our energy, our farming, our commerce, our waste, our water, and our transport. We have been lulled into a state of trust in our state institutions without the knowledge of who is exactly behind their direction.
The world’s second-richest man, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, was a major Irish bank bondholder ahead of the financial collapse that saw the taxpayer put on the hook for the €64bn bank bailout.
Gates was a bondholder in Anglo Irish Bank, Irish Nationwide Building Society, Bank of Ireland and Allied Irish Bank, according to filings seen by the Sunday Independent. The filings detail investments held by Gates’ Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The identities of wealthy bondholders in the Irish banks, bailed out in most cases by Irish citizens, have never been revealed fully.
