    Doesn’t matter who signed up – whose enforcing it? FF? They couldn’t enforce a fly taking a dump right now.

    “Section 23 tax breaks introduced by Fianna Fail for builders and developers like Mick Wallace.”
    Despite running the country for over 18 months, creating two full budgets, and not to mention welcoming Mick to stay in office, FG haven’t bothered to correct the issue. Allowing is the same as enabling if you have the power to correct the mistake but couldn’t be arsed..

      If you think the economy will be fixed in 18 months then you are living in cloud cuckoo land.

        Fix? I’ll settle for it going back to where it was 18 months ago – limping but working. Now we’re bleeding 120 jobs for every 50; never mind the 400’000 unemployed already.

        Never mind the fact that the FG party got into office on the promise that no more money would be paid out to faceless bondholders; “not one more red cent”. Over a space of 5 weeks just one month back, we handed over 1.5 BILLION to them. Never mind how much the FG party have already handed over in 18 months. Apparently these were unsecured – never mind the “banking guarantee” that ex-teacher Noonan keeps prattling on about; these UNsecured, pre-banking-guarantee bondholders haven’t even been identified. Go ahead and claim they are not identifiable: how are AIB paying them? Christ, if they’re that inept as the bloody US for help, they seem to be able to find anyone.
