There'll be a rush for places in the Ag colleges to get "trained farmer" certification before the end of 2011.

There's actually no such thing as a vote on the budget.

There will be votes tonight on items like the increases in excise on petrol and booze.

The Social Welfare provisions will be voted for later this week when the Social Welfare Bill comes before the Dail.

Most provisions will be voted for in the Finance Bill in January.

My understanding that the first vote, to pass elements relating to excise on petrol etc, which go into effect at midnight, is at 7pm.

PS, though he might be a FF'r, he did ask a rational and important question. Less of the ad hominem please.

There will be several votes. What about a vote on the bailout? On TV?

You vote No.1 for the traitors?

Only vote will be for things like increase in excise duty. Great heroes like Mahhy McGrath, Lowry and JHR are voting for it. Wrestled with their consciences and won !
