    Default Where the budget is bad

    All these cuts that they are proposing will only lead to half of the projected savings because its mostly consumer spending that these cuts will hit.I wonder have the gov factored this point into their projected savings?

    Prob not,

    Default Another thing

    they are trying to fight a recession with without monetary policy which is now in the hands of the EU.I think if a country goes into recession then the gov should have the right to control their own interest rates.Slashing interest rates is the quickest way to recover from a recession.

    --- There is NO MONEY to borrow, the Banks are almost bust.
    If they did have, JOE PUBLIC would have difficulty in finding collateral to borrow against
    because of the " once bitten twice shy" concept of property values.
    Centeral Bank interest rate is rock bottom at present anyway.
    One can see now the reason why Britain retained its independent currency.

    Where the budget is going bad is cutting public service workers who earn just 30,000 a year by 5% is just disgusting. 7.5% and 10% are really fair cuts but why stop there why not look at all the allowences higher earners get to enjoy. There needs to be a complete over haul of the public service a radical reform. In my situation I am paid my full salary for the year while I attend college which is also subsidised because is an investment I guess. Private companies do it too of course. But this one example of waste that could be changed.

    Let the social revolution begin.


    Jobseekers allowence for young people 19 - 20 year olds to 100e. Its jobseekers allowence why would they need this much money.
    A bus pass for a month 100e.
    Black ink for CV'S 14e a cartridge.
    Paper 5e for 500
    Printer 60e-100e
    Or all free at your local fas office ffs!!

    As for rates even talking about a cut is ridiculous thanks to germany and france they will go up. Which makes people who are unemployed using that money to service mortages that cut of 4.1% will be made worse.
    I like to think there's a sexyfukka in all of us.
