Happy Christmas Bank of Ireland. PS – I’m Leaving…

Here’s a scenario for you. It’s 3 days to Christmas. It’s 2010 in Fianna Fail ruined Ireland. It’s a recession. It’s been ‘Tighten your belt’ time for the last two years.

.

The IMF have battened down the hatches and are here to stay and direct our government’s ‘tough decisions’. We’re going to be paying €85bn with an interest rate of almost 6% and we’re going to be bailing out the dodgy developers of NAMA to the tune of god knows how much.

.

Yes, it’s just another normal week in post pussy Ireland.

.

And now, in the middle of all the belt tightening and pocket plundering, Bank of Ireland have decided to reprise the role of ‘greedy bastard bankers’, despite the fact that the dust hasn’t yet settled on the IMF bailout and my own personal feeling towards it is ‘hey, you guys got us into this mess in the first place!’

.

So Bank of Ireland, I’m sorry that I don’t make 9 payments per quarter out of my account. I’m sorry that I have no requirement for phone or internet banking at present.

.

But more than that, I’m sorry that I don’t have and constantly have €3,000 in my account at all times. I’m sorry that I don’t have a job or really, any source of income that gives me the luxury to dive into a virtual vat of money in my bank account. In case you hadn’t noticed, the economy’s collapsed. Oh hang on; you possibly did notice that, seeing as you contributed to it.

.

So what I’m going to say is this. Firstly, I have a student account and so won’t be paying you anything anyway. Secondly, by the time I graduate, I hope to be in a position whereby I won’t have to pay a single cent to help you lot cruise comfortably out of the trouble you got yourselves into.

.

In fact, I hope to be in a position (i.e. – abroad) where I don’t have to contribute to the cleaning up of the imbecilic mess our so called brightest and brilliant got us into.

.

We’re already bailing this lot out once. How, and who on earth thought it would be a good idea to rape us even further with these ridiculous charges? Tell you what BOI – we’ll pay the 28c per transaction but we feel that that should exempt us from the €85bn, seeing as we are already paying our proportionate share of the mess that the country ended up in.

.

Should I remain in this country after my student account expires, I will be swiftly withdrawing whatever money I have in my Bank of Ireland account. I would encourage others to do the same.

.

Let’s see how they like it when they don’t have enough money to toss to the big boys who gambled away our futures.
