The International Monetary Fund has delivered a tough assessment of Ireland's economic situation, highlighting lack of progress by banks and dangers of the country's debt becoming unsustainable if growth forecasts are missed.
If involuntary part time workers and workers only marginally attached to the labour force - two groups that registered significant increases - are also accounted for the unemployment and underemployment rate stands at a staggering 23%,

Well there ya have it folks - just a few weeks after Christine was sinkin the Black Stuff - here is the hangover!

No doubt Govt Shills & stooges will troll this thread trying to spoof it all away.

Reality however, is starting to bite & bite like never before.

Quinn getting a roasting of the Teachers, Shatty getting the same of the Gards.

FG did well in ME but we all know what happened to the other Govt Party.

The Repos haven't even started - yet there is a great foreboding out there as if they have.

The Alphabet Soup ESM is now being referred to in relation to Irish Banks but after Cyprus who feels confident about that?

Some "Stability Treaty" - we're about as Stable as Berlo's heart rate in the Company of young ladies. :roll:

Of course the fault for a lot of this lies with Brian "we are were we are" Cowen.

One thing is for sure - The Irish People that Cowen was charged to protect are no-where near were him & Ahern are now.

Whilst they pick through their Menus in fine Eateries, Irish people are picking through their Bills to see which one of them should be avoided 1st.

In this Easter Week whilst we salute our heroes we must also compare them to the shower of sh1t who brought us to this Abyss...

This can't be right, I mean, I was just informed by 'Mercurial', 'Toxic Avenger' and a couple of others that Ireland is a very rich country that can not only afford to give 700 million away to Africans but should really be giving much more.

The employment figures are highly depressing. How long would it take to get that to a reasonable point if everything went well, even extremely well, probably decades?

Haven't seen ya postin in ages - how are ya? :p
Ah grand. Clearly things must be or I wouldn't be back here for more doom porn. :(

Anyway, as to yer OP. To put it into Deefer speak, things here in Ireland are sweet and sour, ie: bland! Things are slowly improving but the unemployment figures leave a lot to be desired. I guess I'm a glass half full kinda of guy. Come on, cheer up. We might be sh!t at football, pyrite is wrecking the gaff and Tubbs is STILL presenting the Late Late, but.......................

Australia is headed for disaster. 2 bubbles about to burst - property and raw minerals. They will be back home soon enough.

Unfortunately that is what you get when you have three parish pump teachers running the country. No meaningful reform has been tried. The Troika report is scathing and uses strong language. Kenny is a glorified county Councillor. A nice guy but not an ideas man and wedded to the old way of doing things. I am hoping the report stiffens backbones but I won't be holding my breath.

This really isn't a surprise to any one who disbelieves the government figures and all those training and made up jobs to massage the figures.

I'd say the Government are delighted with this report - it might provide a dose of reality to the various interest groups who still believe in the existence of The Magic Money Tree. I doubt the timing's a coincidence, either.

No one ever said all our problems were solved or that we didn't still have high unemployement. Just that things had stabilisied and were improving extremely slowly.

There is still an extremely long road ahead and it isn't going to be easy. Mostly we need Europe and the US to get it's act together, while we contiune to deal with our deficit and our cost base. We're never going to recover until the rest of the West does, but we need to make sure that when they do, we're in a solid position to recover with them.
