In a statement just issued by Independent TD Michael Lowry, he has confirmed that he will support tomorrow's budget.

“Our country is in grave economic danger. The consequences of not passing a budget would be disastrous for Ireland and its people. It takes experience, political maturity and courage to make the hard decision and do what is right for our country. Despite some adverse reaction in my constituency to this decision I feel duty bound to put the country’s interests first.”

“Failure to pass a budget would lead to further economic failure. If our Government and political leaders renege on a vital condition of our agreement with the EU/IMF we will suffer irreparable reputational damage. Such an abdication of governance would attract ridicule and scorn throughout Europe and the international financial markets”.

“I believe we have no alternative but to honour and comply with the budgetary parameters as set out in the agreement with the EU/IMF in respect of budget 2010.”
Michael Lowry TD​
His statement says that he has made this decision "after extensive consultation with the Government over the past week".

That means that they will have to support the Social Welfare Bill as well. That will be fun for Jackie up and down South Kerry.

PS Lucious Lucy is looking a bit stupid at the mo.

The third sentence should read:

It takes experience, political maturity and courage to make the hard decision and do what is right for our country, therefore I resign forthwith.

So there's a new Motorway for Tipp North smuggled in there amongst the cuts? Love the laugh line of Lowry pretending to put country first though...

I suppose Lowry might as well get some mileage out of his last few weeks of relevancy

Does he realise that it's FF he's talking about?? They have none of the 3 qualities he's talked about....well..except experience of feathering their own nests.

Lowry only wants to get things for his part of the Country and does not care about the rest of Ireland

I love how he is voting for it before he has even seen it.

Sell out cop out. Hope he rots in hell.
