The Evening Herald's political reporter Kevin Doyle reports this afternoon that "a record EUR6bn in Budget cuts is going to inflict pain on every household in the country".



Doyle reports that "health, social welfare and education" will be the hardest hit and that experts have cast doubt on the ability of the government to reach a target of bring the national deficit to under 10%.

Inside the paper, Doyle reports that "huge tax increases on the way, it's been confirmed today".

Will not be enough according to the Economic Intelligence Unit Ireland analyst on Morning Ireland. She reckoned a budget of €8.6billion is needed to get down to 10% of GDP. Apparantly she was on the BBC before that saying the same thing and sent the Dept of Finance bananas.

This just shows are Brians don't know what they are doing, they are playing roulette and poker with our economic soverignty.
The clown that is our Taoisech said a few weeks ago, the adjustment would not go near the figure of 4billion.
How do they just keep getting the figures wrong, play us for fools, and deny us democracy.
Shame,shame on FF and Greens.

Sport, they have been doing it for years. Most people either didn't notiuce or didn't care because the banks and credit card companies fed them the drug. Now that drug is not available anymore, peop[le are beginning to see more clearly.

Next time, please dont vote for them, and the tijme after that and the time after that. Please also inform your children of these times and ensure they never vote for the scum administering the country now.
