Tonight it is the turn of the ULA to have their pre-Budget submission scrutinised by the panel. Is the ULA’s submission a viable alternative or just fantasy economics? This is the third and final submission from the Opposition parties before B-Day on Wednesday.

RBB will be given his 5 or so minutes to present the ULA’s figures uninterrupted. But there is nobody better than Constantin to take Richard Boyd Barret’s figures apart. Should be an ‘interesting’ show tonight. I pity RBB, will he leave the studio in floods of tears after the panel sheds his figures to pieces, or will he have the last laugh as he reveals his figures do, in fact, add up? Well, tune in to find out ….

Is it a Pre-Budget Submission or a pamphlet?

Credit Suisse Report 2007 and the BOI report showing 33,000 millionaires in 2006 / 2007 will surely get a mention.

Is the magic money tree mentioned ?
Grounds keeper Noonan was unavailable for comment. :) All ULA has to do is appear to be reasonable. Gurdgiev is probably a good choice for the panel as the panel is generally Leftist slanted. If Gurdgiev starts agreeing with sections of the ULA proposal, Vinnie might lose it.

Due to the austerity, it has been shortened so as to use up less paper and less ink.

Well, actually, now that you bring it up, nobody has yet mentioned the EU "Stability" mechanism.

For anyone interested this is their appalling excuse of a budget...
As opposed to the Labour excuse of a budget? Then again Labour could also be under threat from ULA at the next GE.

"Resolve the mortgage crisis through a write-down to current market value of owner-occupier mortgages given out between 2002-2008. The banks have been given money to cover losses on mortgages. Any shortfall should be covered by non-payment of bondholders. Remove the bank veto in personal insolvency legislation; enshrine in law protection of the family home; no repossessions."

Cool.

Funnier than red cents and Labour's way and not downgrading my hospital or five point plans and contracts with the people and sacking underperforming ministers (stop, you're killing me), and paying back EVERY PENNY WE OWE, even though YOU'RE NOT TO BLAME and losing tens upon tens of thousands to emigration and making pretty much zero impact on employment figures. As funny as that?
As funny as being scared of your own shadow and aggressive flowerpots?
Every one's a gem.
