Gormley has made a statement about education: he's delighted that no cuts were made to education.
Did he read the same austerity plan as the rest of us? This hypocrite deserves whatever's coming to him . Thousands will be forced out of third level through cuts in grants, fee hikes (let's be honest, the reg fee is fees by another name), and the quality of our education is declining due to the recruitment embargo. Time for students to help in kicking this rotten shower out and building a resistance to EU/IMF austerity policies."We are proud that education spending will be increased over the coming period," he said.
"This is vital to protect the needs of a rising generation.
"Increased spending on education is, above all, central to the efforts to rebuild national prosperity."
