It could do a 7.5 billion budget very easy, abolish child benifit saving 2.5 billion, cut capital program by 2.5 billion, third rate of tax 48percent on income over 100k would bring in 400 million, flat rate water charges would bring in 600 million, 1.5 billion cut of public service pay, total 7.5 billion

There needs to be a general election. Need government with a workable majority and renewed mandate.
Yes, a WORKABLE majority - is this possible with a FG/LAB coalition?

How could they possibly agree on a budget, when Eamon 'man-of-the-people' Gilmore won't cut anything and wants to raise €15B by taxing the rich (I agree with taxing the rich, but the problem is the massive government pay bill).

If the electorate fall for Gilwhore's guff, and Labour become the biggest party, then the game's up - the IMF will be knocking on the door.
