Brian Brennan: We must revisit past to fix the future and the four-year austerity plan will be the first step

Brian Brennan

HERE is some breaking news for the cool mover who still likes to spell out his plans in terms of constantly "going forward".

The news is that, very soon, probably from tomorrow, the country will be going backward. We must revisit the past to fix the future and publication of the four-year austerity plan will be the first step.

Suddenly, it will seem cool and businesslike to say "going backward". If only we could turn back time there would be no property bubble, no benchmarked inflation of civil service salaries and numbers and we would not swallow the deceitful, condescending spiel of bankers and politicians.
