Pearse V Hayes!

Should be a good show tonight.


Online: Aertv | Watch Irish TV live online



Brain Lucey has wrote an article on the "Sacred Cows".

So we will see on Wednesday how nasty the budget bite is to be. We know the broad parameters, with the cabinet clearly leaking like a sieve, and it has been clear over the last few weeks that the reality is beginning to hit home that the pain is not just not over but will be more and more intense as we cut deeper into the deficit. A lot of the low hanging fruit is gone and we have heard time and again “nothing is off the table” when it comes to the budget. But of course, that is not the case. Whole ranges of things are, explicitly or implicitly, off the table and will not be touched in the budget. Ring-fencing anything while the state hemorrhages money is not a good idea.

Oooh, millionaires talking about the need to cut welfare, pensioners and to heap more tax on the already exasperated coping classes, think I'll pas.

SF have lost the little credibility they had left with the €800m wealth tax based on 2007 levels of wealth.

Its easy to attack other parties all the time. You should look at your own, they are the ones in government.

Pity Morgan Kelly has nothing to say, he's scarily worth listening to.

I hope PK covers the €1.7 trillion in debt that the Sindo says we owe collectively.

Millionaires will discuss poverty.

The discussion will be chaired by somebody who might be a millionaire (well he has earned a fortune) or who might not be (well he blew a lot of money also).

I will not be watching this. Hayes is unendurable.

It will be interesting to hear if Hayes tries to talk up the property market again. I just reckon he is chomping at the bit to tell people that there are not enough houses....

Will they discuss quangos, semi-quangos (like the third level sector institutions) ?

(while participating on a forum controlled by a quango - where the remit never includes the obvious).

He really does not come out that often, not on camera which is a pity, but then he is not out for the limelight. Articles are always well received, but it has been awhile..Like to hear his take on the current situation here and EU in particular.
