The Sunday Business Post is reporting that the FFailures are threatening to pull the plug on the Confidence and Supply Agreement if the Minister for Finance does not provide tax cuts for Developers.
Talk about putting the gun to the head of the Government in a shameless and blatant way.In a major policy shift this weekend, the party's housing spokesman Barry Cowen (brother of Brian Cowen, the Finance Minister who bankrupted Ireland in the early noughties by cosying up to developers and allowing them to run riot) said their party is demanding that the VAT rate be cut to 9% in next month's budget, for which the Government will need the FFailures approval to pass
Donations must have been down at the Galway Festival this year, and there's an election looming."We're looking for a VAT holiday for a sunset period for the construction sector" Cowen told the Business Post
For decades they've been robbing us blind, and now they want to to it all over again."We just have to be radical here" Cowen said. "I don't buy this thing about the Department of Finance not believing it's feasible or practical. That's rubbish"
