Damien English, FG TD Meath West Damien English TD; Meath West; Navan, Trim, Athboy, Enfield; Fine Gael
Michael McGrath, FF TD Cork South-Central Michael McGrath, Spokesperson on Finance | Fianna Fáil

This is the second of the pre-Budget 2013 submissions from the Opposition benches. Last week SF presented their submission, tonight it’s the turn of Michael McGrath, FF‘s spokesperson on Finance. [Have we yet to see a submission from the ULA, or are figures not their forte?]

So, after the FF presentation the panel tonight will analyse and number crunch the figures in Fianna Fail’s submission and tries to get an answer to the question: is it a viable alternative or just fantasy? How do the numbers stack up?

A good show should be on the cards for tonight. Have FF got any good things in their submission? Well worth viewing tonight … ;)

IMPORTANT NOTICE
And the moment you’ve all being waiting for will take place tomorrow night on #VINB. Yes, our dear departed leader, Dave Cochrane, is in an exclusive interview with your favourite tv presenter. You’ve been warned, tune in early and don’t miss the moment when Dave will look all agog at his hero, Vinny. Definitely, a moment not to be missed.

Because, tomorrow Vinny and his cameras go inside the Irish Times to see how the paper is made, who sets the agenda, and why and how it’s doing in the current media environment [well he went in last week, but it’s only being shown now].

I hope Dave managed to utter the word "taxpayers" a couple of times. I want to get a screenshot of Vinny gurning.

Fianna Fáil budget submission? No thanks.

Anything those fools have to offer I wisely steer clear of.

Great op norm.

Michael McGrath and Damien English discussing finance.

Not exactly Keynes and galbraith but might tune in if carlovian jnr ever
gets to sleep.

I'm guessing half the time will be spent with English giving out about ff dodging out of the property tax they signed up for.

FF budgetary submission. Should be a lot funnier than Mario's lame efforts on Monday.

Actually, there is a pic of DC with Vinny which I got through Twitter. I'm not a techie, but maybe you would know how to display?

Hope this pic comes through - otherwise try to cut and paste https://twitter.com/davidcochrane/status/269110588834213888 - which shows Vinny haranguing poor Dave in the Irish Times. The look of total confusion on Dave’s face is priceless!
