I think the key is "maybe" the price we have to pay. Anyone can speculate on anything. All you need do is read a few threads and posts on here.

Kind of shows who is driving the agenda here.
Yes, and perhaps therefore another reason why perhaps the Irish Government is so keen to avoid a bailout?

Its what they have been after all along. What else have we got to offer, besides a truck load of debt and a gombeen ruling class?

Our Government couldn't care less about the rate. All they are interested in is their salaries and perks. The reason they don't want a bailout is because they are afraid of what skeletons will be revealed.

The only price that should be put on the bail-out is an immediate general election.

All we are getting to work off are snippets from here and there. An article from Reuters, then something off a blog, then some musings on Bloomberg. With the Irish Government so discredited is the eyes of many, anything thay say is treated with disdain. They need to make a clear statement on what their intentions are, not the odd grumble on RTE. It is the evasiveness of Government ministers that is driving the gossip.

The only reason I voted Yes to Lisbon 2 was on the absolute guarantee that our corporate tax could not be touched .If it is I am going to sue the Government and the EU for fraudulently using my vote.

Do you honestly think the Irish Government are capable of this?! It is very hard to tell the truth with a forked tongue.
It is now time for Brian Cowen to grow a pair. From outside of Ireland he apears ellusive and slippery. For a stateman who earns so much money he should be a star on the world stage. Ireland is ************************************. Everyone knows this. Cowen should act like a man, stare into the RTE camera and make it very clear to the EU and the rest of the economic world what path Ireland is going to take. This would calm the markets and allow the Irish people to start planning their future. Banks could calculate their losses and Ireland could draw a line under it's demise and start to rebuild.
Will he do this? No. I'm with you Johnnypockets. Your political elite are a bunch of shysters who are doing their best to cover their tracks and bail out their mates.

And it is all conjecture and inuendo. Working off that stuff is highly dangerous. I understand the frustration though. But there are so many half stories around and the media cant be trusted that peoples heads are just spinning.

All along the Brians and the rest are laughing at us, while playing their game of cute hoorism.

We cannot be forced to change our Corporation Tax Rate bailout or no bailout.

If we increase it to anything above 16% we can kiss Goodbye to 50,000 more jobs.

We just have to tell the Jerries to Eff Off.

We will take the bailout on our terms or we can bring down the whole rotten edifice that is the Eurozone. We have power if we have the balls to use it.
