Jaysus David, get a life, I am worried about you, have you nothing better to do than wade through that crap? Nearly as bad as the hymne nationale we were required to listen to in the Stade de France...

Call me cynical, but wtf is it supposed to achieve?

I have just posted about anger and how to corral it; maybe this will be the catalyst??

Bye, Barry

Proposal 1: Dismantle all forms of Fractional Reserve Banking and liberalise the industry by initiating the Free Banking Model.

Proposal 2: Set up our own currency backed by Gold.

I'd doubt them proposals will get past the dustbin, but it will beat "Building a tunnel to England using the conctrete from the oversupply of houses" and "lets develop a Smart Economy based on Information Technology"....

God, no. Whatever we do, let's not think positively and consider the possibility that we might have the talents to solve our problems. Because then we might actually solve them and we'd have nothing to whine about.

There's a certain class of poster on this site whose vanity is of such narcissistic proportions that they'd rather see this country go down the tubes than have their own perpetually negative world-view proved wrong.

Thanks for that David-its easy to be cynical so why not give it a go? Was good to see Grainne Seoige again too!

Wake me up once a single banker has been arrested. Otherwise, this is more of the same old Ideas Campaign let's-pat-ourselves-on-the-pack ********************e (remember that?).

I vaguely remember the ideas campaign and how it hit a brick wall when it reached the office of Brian Cowen and sank like a lead balloon.

Remember this?



Or this?



What wonderful policies caused from the above has had the effect of the reversal of the evaporation of wealth in this country.

Do you seriously think the Neo Feudalists will implement the rightfully strategy in which the market is allowed to let the peasants enjoy the fruits of their production?

I want my country to succeed, but that is impossible in the current paradigm.

Wasn't there some ideas thing last year? I vaguely recall it being discussed here and the people saying it was stupid being howled down for not being positive. I wonder what happened to it.

Just remember that the working man , as Marx said, has no country. The private sector worker is being rogered by the vested interests in this state. PS unions, Banks and the political class.

This attempt by unidentified people to distract us with "all in it together" claptrap should be laughed out of court and will be by all but the feeble minded.

See you next year for the next piece of crud.

Corporate - State fused entity of some sort trying to convey an act of kindness and empathy. The same a battered wife receives flowers on the rare occasion from her psychopathic husband (or indeed the other way around).

Jaysis - not another Quango assisted Astroturf campaign to get us to put our thinking caps on for the benefit of..................

What happened the "brilliant" ideas campaign from last year eh?

More PRO and advertising industry sh^te from well paid individuals trying to justify their own existence - it all reminds me of that episode in the Simpsons where Homer is trying to come up with a brilliant invention to save his financial ass.................

Exactly what I was thinking, the website is not clear, the only name I saw behind it was David Byrne. If it is a government department it is not clear which or who. Maybe Mary Coughlan :).
