Still not one suggestion as to where the currently borrowed ?1.4billion a month will come from to fund the public service.

    Paddy very simple . If we didnt pay the bank debt we dont owe the money could be used to stimulate the economy instead of taxing everyone hence removing spending power of people. It is that simple.

    …..that’s a fair point, we are borrowing more than we put in, but to impose even more cuts on those who can barely afford to live is not the way forward. If anything it will make the problems with our poor tax take worse. As things stand people are drastically reducing their spending, having a whole generation of people defaulting on mortgages, playing fuel light bingo, and shopping in the discount aisle is hardly going to aid our recovery, cuts have been made, they were necessary, but piling on ever more cuts is NOT going to fix the problem. Enough.

    Dear oh dear. Paddy Murray repeated claims theres ‘not one suggestion’, only to get one, and then posts the same claim on the next relevant thread.

    Well said Stephen the only way out is to spend and put money back into our economy not keep cutting wages and taxing people to the hilt. It’s basic economic’s lesson.

    Stephen,

    Did you see what we pay our public service compared to other Euro-Zone countries?

    Reg, did you compare the cost of living between Ireland and the rest of the E.U? It’s like comparing apples and oranges. Or do you honestly believe that frontline public servants earning 45k a year are filling bathtubs with champagne ( on top of filling government and local authority coffers)? Frontline low to middle income public servants are saying no, not because we are greedy or pampered, but because we are scared. These proposed cuts are for many, a cut too far.

    actually just as ive not seen his copy paste job. Ireland now has one of the lowest paid police forest in western Europe. earns less then the Met the PSNI the french and German police. that’s just from my own two minute search on Google but i would think its same that irish police earn less then dutch and the rest.

    just google police salary france/germany or what ever see for ones self :)

    If we didn’t pay the bank debt nobody would lend us the billions we’re currently borrowing to run the country and there would be no public service and no public service workers.

    Paddy, the Bank guarantee is I suppose a different ( if related topic) to The Goverment’s slash and burn policies, seeing as how we’re on the subject tho, one question, do you think the bank guarantee scheme was a good deal or even the right deal for the Irish tax payer?

    Bank guarantee scheme was and is a disaster. Gutless Fianna Fail were bullied into it. German Finance Minister said this week that the reason we had to bail out their banks is because everyone knew there was light or no regulation of the financial services industry here. Everyone knew? Of course they did! That’s why he German banks foolishly put their money into the mythical Celtic Tiger. Trouble is, FF signed us up and we’re stuck with it. We can’t afford not to have new taxes and not to have cuts but….

    ….Ministers’ salaries should be cut by half, mileage and allowances for TDs should be cut if not scrapped, the number of TDs should be cut by half, there should be a new rate of tax of around 75 per cent for salaries over €150,000… none of that would solve the problem. But it would make things a great deal more fair.
