Imagine if they didnt bail out the banks and used just a fraction of this as a proper stimulus....Could have built a next generation broadband network, built some decent schools, education programmes for the unemployed.

What a plonker !

they should have let the banks burn

Agreed..While there were some economists giving their advice for free,and told to leave those banking officials to their own devices eg let the banks burn,they turned on their heel and ignored this advice,and decided to pay their unqualified consultants for advice..

A Space Programme, A Nuclear Weapons Project, A Tunnel between Dublin and Wales- The money spent on these things would of stimulated the economy. Instead we threw it into a black hole never to be seen again.

I think these TDs should be subject to random drug and alcohol testing before going on air. He can't really be serious?

The electorate who put those people in power have a lot to answer for in the years to come. Lets hope the electorate of Donegal put an end to this government

I hope people begin to realise that the ECB and their lapdog banksters control this country not the people that voters think Cowen and Co.
We are not a sovereign state anymore and will not be until we take back control of our monetary policy.
Our puppets in the Dail do their bidding and impoverish the ordinary people.

Hasn't this been done before? - "Honest to God, Brian, after the Nurofen Plus and the third bottle of wine, I didn't know what I was doing or saying"

The USA are printing mula out of thin air and eventually the chickens will come home to roost when the worst type of taxation takes hold on the poor and middle classes in the USA it's called inflation+++.

Every time I hear another Gov TD or ff'r I think of Homer J Simpson with the crayon stuck up his nose and the one where his skull cracks open and the note from God pops out saying ''IOU 1 brain''

This government has to go, it is necessary in the next few days that they vacate
their offices now. Briann Lenihan has wasted 2 years., A new government within a month with a good working majority. let them introduce their austerity measures. Go to the ECB rescue fund, There has to be some plan for growth, over 5 years, All this will happen next year, We have wasted enough time, due to Fianna Fail greed.
Cowen and Lenihan are destroying us more everyday, Our country is depending
on the people of Donegal to sack this government for its survival.
