Isn't that what happens when you keep turning corners.
FF have turned so many corners at this stage that they have disappeared up their own holes.That depends on the direction of the corners, but in your case as you only have one direction, it's probably true.
I listened to Cowen's waffle last night on Freefall, so I won't even engage about him today other than to say he's clueless...The country needs a sharp right turn. Artificially keeping the price of labour high through minimum wage and fixed wage agreements simply keeps more people on the dole. Allow the Market to set the price for labour and let's get back to work! People will certainly be on more than the €200 a week the govt pays them.
Why are you not in Galway Willie?.Twitter,Twitter,Twitter....Even if it was and even if he did, what has that got to do with it?
He sounded perfectly fine and more importantly what he had to say was relevant and he obviously knew what he was talking about, in contrast to some of our other political "leaders" who either manage to say nothing or talk themselves into ever decreasing circles.
If people's incomes are cut further, spending will decrease and the tax take for the government will decline further, leading to more cuts in 2012... vicious circle. The problem is the structural deficit, not the current one. Billions each year is being borrowed for infrastructure that we don't need.
Cuts can be found via slashing the roadbuilding programme, which needs to be ended until further notice, ditto investment in the metro to nowhere, etc. until we can afford/ need such ventures. The M50 is now like an airport runway because there is so little traffic these days. Start a sale of property for people who are keen to get on the property ladder, and let people find ways of buying their homes intelligently. Encourage consumption by bringing some certainty back into economic planning rather than instilling fear in people who did not cause the crash.
I'd say he cannot wait for the election.Sounds like the gombeen wants a holiday.
Just after finishing the last three months on holiday.
I would agree with all of that. The patent slurring of his speech at one point though indicated that he was in fact still drunk rather than just merely hungover.Definitley sounded hungover after a night of pints and fags. A few slurred words and a few slips of the tounge. I don't think he would have passed a breathalyzer test this morning.
