Maybe Iceland made the right decision.SF voted with the Govt in Sept 2008 like FG, Greens, BECAUSE IF THE BANKS WERE NOT SUPPORTED WE WOULD HAVE GONE LIKE ICELAND IN 24 HOURS. David McWillams etc all supported this move as IT WAS ESSENTIAL AT THE TIME.
Labour didn't vote for it, couldn't offer an alternative, just good old fashioned political point scoring and to hell with the country if it collapses.
Take the pain there and then and move on...
How and ever that is something we do not know
- that is what the Bankers were threatening the Government with
- It's not a case that the Government could have done nothing
- its their disastrous decision to underwrite ALL the debts incurred within the Irish Banking system
- when they had no idea how big that hole was.
Why did SF support them in this idiocy!:evil:
