Aengus O Snodaigh, at the AGM of Dublin SF today, advised ridding ourselves of the IMF, burning the bondholders and nationalising BOI and AIB.

Throw the IMF out of the country

So far, SF are the only party calling for a blunt ‘no’ to our new European overlords and have mapped a clear path out of the economic woods in their DOF costed pre-budget submission that urges a new tax band, a wealth tax, capped public sector pay and, critically, proper deployment of the National Pension Reserve Rainy Day money to get us back on track.

It’s good to see, at last, somebody in Irish politics taking a hard line with the ‘tall Hungarians’, ‘the Choppers’ and their ilk.

That is all bunkum from Snodgrass. Do that and in a few months time we will not have money to pay old age pensioners, nurses and gardai.

Is easy for him to say all this because he knows SF haven't a hope in hell of getting into Government. Shame on him.

We can get through this on our own if it's done properly. If we continue done this path we'll be in the pockets of these guys for generations.

Fianna Fail have spectacularly screwed up every single step of the recovery effort. Handing over our economic sovereignty is just the last step of a completely skewed approach to the economic crisis. About time somebody cried stop!

Congratulations to Sinn Féin. That's a very radical solution - ending borrowing from abroad means cutting about €20 billion from the deficit, which is a big move. That must mean at least €8 billion of spending cuts every year. I wonder what they are going to cut? (Clue: "banks" doesn't count.)

Who do you propose props up our banks?
The ECB are fed up with us, we repersent 1-2% of europe yet we are swallowing up 25% of the ECB funds.

Idiot has no idea what he is talking about
Instead of calling names can you not accept other views and explain why you oppose them if your so clever?.

instead of a 3% deficit in 3 years, it means a 0% deficit immediately. Wow!

Once again SF show their complete inability to understand how countries are run, an inability to understand basic economic facts and a willingness to come up with incoherent populist rubbish that would put even Bertie to shame. Shower of crooked idiots.

Dev would have shown them the door anyway.

O'Snoddy is right - but I wonder is this all posturing from a safe distance.

This 'we will fight them on the beaches' stuff can't do the any harm up in Donegal on Thursday.
