Cowen denies unemployment a ‘low priority’

Wednesday, 16 June 2010 11:39

Taoiseach Brian Cowen has rejected an assertion by Labour Leader Eamon Gilmore that unemployment is a low priority for the Government.

Brian Cowen said the Government had increased the number of training places for the unemployed.

He said jobs were created on the basis of a more competitive economy and predicted net employment creation next year on the basis of current Government strategy.

Eamon Gilmore said the situation was hopelessly depressing for people out of work.

He described as ‘socially unsustainable’ the situation in which one in three young men was on the dole.

Mr Gilmore criticised what he referred to as the Government’s residual theory of employment and encouraged the Taoiseach to come up with a strategy to get the unemployed back to work.

Comment

As far as I can see this is exactly the case unelected Taoiseach Cowen has done nothing to help the unemployed it is as if they just don’t exist in his world

A world of big bank bonus, mistrial allowances and perks and giving a did out to the golden circle.

Pulling strokes and looking after your cronies (The gutless greens who see no problem supporting the very gangsters who have destroyed our country) the confidence expressed in Cowen yesterday

The country is clearly in the shits because this unelected Taoiseach guilty of economic treason

survives a no confidence vote and the oppositions leader has to face treachery from his own front bench

The Unemployed don’t expect the get anything from Cowen or the Greens anytime soon

They are too busy looking after the big developers and Bankers and squabbling over the plumb jobs for themselves and their laciest.

People of Ireland wake up for God sake!

Gilmore criticises Govt economic policies

The Labour Party leader has strongly criticised the Government’s economic policies, accusing the Taoiseach of standing idly by while the economy was taken over by speculators.

Eamon Gilmore was speaking at Arbour Hill in Dublin at the annual James Connolly Commemoration.

He said Taoiseach Brian Cowen is now attempting to rewrite history by whitewashing the past, which he said is a ‘shameful exercise’.

Mr Gilmore also said Fianna Fáil had betrayed the people of Ireland.

He said the National Asset Management Agency is a scheme designed by the golden circle, for the golden circle and delivered in ‘shiny packaging by Fianna Fáil.’

SIPTU General President Jack O’Connor also used the occasion to criticise the Government’s handling of the economy.

Mr O’Connor said the economic crisis has meant sacrifices have to be made by all sections of society, but that no-one should confuse social responsibility with a lack of will to fight.

He said such a fight must be well-informed, strategic and organised. He said public service unions are currently in discussions over what kind of strategy to employ to confront ‘the great challenge of our time’.

Mr O’Connor also described the 1997 Fianna Fáil-Progressive Democrat coalition as a ‘swarm of locusts’ who ‘destroyed any potential for a stable economy’.

He said the ‘swashbuckling winner takes all’ economic model has run its course
