WHATEVER the final economic deal is called, this relentless uncertainty has to be brought to a halt as soon as possible, by installing a sound financial foundation for our economy.
We have lingered and laboured too long in the shadow of the unknown. We have been told with apparent certainty that corners have been turned, that final figures on the banking black hole have been arrived at, only to watch as the sands of spin and double-speak shift from under our feet again.
A battered, bewildered and bemused population has become anaesthetised by the constant drip-drip of promise, pledge, claim and counter-claim, certain of only one thing: ultimately they and their children and possibly their children's children will feel the financial knife as the bills of the future pile up at our Government's door.
