Taxes will be increased next budget, problem solved. The overpaid Irish worker can well afford it. Time to become more competitive.

The workers may or may not be able to afford it. The question is can the government and the economy survive further tax increases?

The government will do whatever the banksters want and the banksters will demand austerity they own our precious Enda , Eamo etc .Not until the people demand their own banking system for the good of society will there be any changes .

Yes, despite all the constant whinging there is plenty more fat to squeeze. Irish workers are paid an over inflated wage, so despite the spin, they can well afford some more taxes.

Taxes are taking money out of the economy thus hitting everyone. What we need to do is balance taxes and s[pending. Last week's Croke Park agreement didn't go near tackling one of the main drains on the taxpayers (the inflated public sector wage bill) and how long more can we put of really dealing with welfare spending?

Its probably something like a large late payment of Corporation Tax in early 2012, that then happened on time at the end of the year. The important thing is that the figures are on target - don't forget the massive knicker-twist there was on this site about spending being way over target in January - until it was pointed out that there had been 5 pay-days for public sector pay and social welfare that month.

Ger rid of childrens allowance, reintroduce university fees, force all fathers to support their children or take them into care. Deduct the money for their salary. Release all prisoners and lay off all prisoner officers. Shut the courts and let everyone run feral. Shut the schools and force parents to educate their children at home. Working parents can well afford this. Shut the hospitals and fck it, if your sick, you will probably die. But hey, you are doing your bit for the country.

On set of employees wages shores the others up. The public service wages have thankfully been cut again, and speaking as an employer, its now the right time to return to the private sector wages again. Irish wages remain totally noncompetitive, so there is lots of room for either increased taxes, or wage cuts. You can try to take your pick, but in the next 12 months both are on the cards, and about time.
