UP to 75,000 yesterday took to the streets to protest at €4bn in proposed Budget cuts — but the only thing that had changed by last night was that the country was €70m deeper in debt.
And Taoiseach Brian Cowen and his Cabinet insisted the Government would press ahead with the cuts in the Budget.
Last night, Mr. Cowen’s spokesman said the march would not shrink the gaping hole in the public finances.
When the marches were over, Defense Minister Willie O’Dea told the Irish Independent that the Government still had to take the difficult decisions.
Everybody seems to have forgotten who it was that got us into this mess in the first place .Mr.Cowen and Mr.Lenihan and the their Green Lackeys are responsible and when and not if the fireworks get started the people will hopefully get justice
The corrupt bankers and the incompetence of the financial regulator’s office must be addressed as well
We must take back all the golden handshakes that were given out to these crooks and criminal precautions must be sought
All bankers that were involved must be stripped of their pensions and other assets and these given back to the people who have lost their jobs and pensions
These fraudsters should be on trial for treason and the loss financial independence of Ireland
If the Government is looking for money they should go to the Irish permanent they have 7,000,000,000:00 sloshing around to help out friends in distress!
