In the wake of Joe Higgins and Richard Boyd-Barrett setting up this new group John Deasy says the country needs enterprise, not "headbangers"!!
He caused a bit of a stir on Waterford Local Radio today, when he said the policies of Sinn Fein and United Left Alliance would drive investment out of this country. He said what we need now is people who understand business and economics and "not HEADBANGERS"!!!

He's right! He's right!

If those left-wing loons get their hands on the economy, they might lead it into total ruination. The IMF would be here within 6 months.

GOING FORWARD!

This man deserves a kick up the arse and set straight.

Make no mistake...

Sinn Fein and the ULA are the ONLY parties that can get us out of this mess!

Joe Higgins plans to make loads of money for the state by selling certs on the open market that declare whether you're a "worker" or not, if you're not a "worker" then you're a parasitic speculator or developer and in league with the bosses and the multi-national corporations. He expects there to be keen competition for the limited number of "workers" certs that will be issued.

I would be very very afraid if SF and/or ULA were in government. Geez, the flight of investment would be quick unless they completely did a volte face and changed their looney policies.

HOW?:mad:

They are opposed to ANY public sectors cuts or government austerity measures.

They are opposed to ANY deal with the EU/IMF.

They think we can default without any impact on government spending or our ability to borrow in the future.

They want an mammoth increase in corporation taxes and huge increases in income tax.

The ULA want to seize all private property and private companies have the government run them.

The Shinners want Irish unification before 2016 at a time when we can barely keep our head above water without having to run the 6 counties full of sash wearing bowl hated sectarians and celtic jersey wearing troglodytes.

He also plans to make it illegal to make someone redundant, with retrospective effect, thereby solving the unemployment crisis overnight.

Speaking on behalf of the Socialist Party - not SF

HOW?:mad:

Not actually - cut the pay of all public servants over €100K - scrap the Seanad - cut TD's expenses - cut the quango expenses - cut the pr consultants and all the other reports etc.

They are opposed to ANY deal with the EU/IMF.
Not actually - if the EU/IMF want to loan us money at 1.5% (the rate the ECB were giving the banks) without any preconditions (like with the banks) than we would happily take it.

They think we can default without any impact on government spending or our ability to borrow in the future.
Who said anything about 'default' - the banks debts are not 'our' debts - the bondholders took a punt on making big bucks, got scalded and now we are bailing them out.

They want an mammoth increase in corporation taxes and huge increases in income tax.
No income tax increase for anyone under €100K - but yes increases in CGT, CAT, corporation tax and the introduction of a wealth tax. The corporations and the rich made a killing over the past 20 years and wrecked the economy in the process - they should pay.

The ULA want to seize all private property and private companies have the government run them.
Most definitely not true - a socialist planned economy would require no more than 100 companies being taken into public ownership and run on a democratic basis.

The Shinners want Irish unification before 2016 at a time when we can barely keep our head above water without having to run the 6 counties.
I agree - that's a bit daft.

The pay of public servants at every level will have to be cut. Anyone who says otherwise is a moron.

:roll: Words fail me.

Just try selling our bonds to them after we already burned them by defaulting.:shock:

Multinational companies will up sticks and leave and tell us to feck off.

Richard Boyd Barrett and Joe Higgins know how to run all the top 100 companies simultaneously?

yes - how utterly insane to have similar CT rates as the UK and less than France - GUBU! :rolleyes:
Let's not forget that both the UK and France provide massive subsidies to their big industries, subsidies that the Irish taxpayer could never afford to do.

That's not an argument. That's just a statement of faith.

Many commentators think it will be cheaper to borrow if we get rid of the bank debt which is not our debt as it means we won't be defaulting in the future.

of course not - the people who work for the companies do though. The companies would be publicly owned and democratically run by the workers in the public interest.

The IDA also subsidises foreign companies and the gvt does subsidise business massively. For example as well as very low CT, we have one of the lowest rates of employers' PRSI in Europe and we massively subsidise agriculture which is one of our main industries - so I don't see what point you're trying to make?
