Ireland: Co. Waterford link with George Osborne British Chancellor of the Exchequer

UK Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne has pledged that Britain would support Ireland's attempts to stabilise its banking system. It is anticipated that this could involve a loan of £6 billion. Osborne is part of the old Anglo-Irish aristocracy and has links with Co. Waterford (in Ireland). He is the heir to the Baronetcy of Ballentaylor, in County Tipperary, and Ballylemon, in County Waterford. His father Sir Peter George Osborne succeeded to the title of 17th Baronet Osborne, of Ballintaylor and Ballylemon, Co. Waterford  on 21 July 1960.

The Osborne Baronetcy, of Ballentaylor in Tipperary, and Ballylemon County Waterford , was created in the Baronetage of Ireland on 15 October 1629 for Richard Osborne.  He was M.P.  for Co Waterford between 1639 and 1649. He was also  M.P. for Co. Waterford between 1661 and 1666.

Sir Richard Osborne, second  baronet  held the office of   M.P.  for Dungarvan between 1639 and 1649.   He held the office of High Sheriff of Co. Waterford in 1671.

Sir John Osborne, 7th Baronet sat as an  MP  in the Irish House of Commons for Lismore between 1719 and 1727 and for County Waterford between 1727 and 1743.

The eight  baronet  Sir William Osborne held the office of High Sheriff of County Waterford in 1750. He held the office of M.P.  for Carysfort between 1761 and 1768.  He was M.P  for Dungarvan between 1768 and 1783. He was invested as a Privy Counsellor  in 1770. He held the office of  M.P. for Carysfort in 1783.
Sir Thomas Osborne the ninth Baronet sat for Carysfort  and also held the office of Sheriff of Waterford .
Sir  Henry Osborne, 11th Baronet  was MP to the Irish House of Commons for Carysfort in 1798 and for Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, in 1800.

The idea that Osborne is loaning money to Ireland because some of his forebears were Irish colonists and he has inherited titles (and nothing else) is laughable. What next? He's a Bilderberger, shape-shifting lizard and a member of the Illuminati?

I never made that claim. I just outlined the family links with Ireland as I thought it was quite interesting. Britain is prepared to loan money to Ireland because a complete collapse in the Irish economy would have massive implications for UK exports. Also UK banks have exposure here.
