The People's Charter 2011
A 13-point manifesto for economic recovery
Published 23/01/2011 | 05:00
1 Our present supine attitude to the power of Frankfurt-Brussels to be replaced by an unapologetic defence of our national interest. O'Connell and Parnell gave confidence to the people in the past, and there must be a contemporary re-awakening of such self-belief.
2 We must consult the people by referendum on the EU-IMF 'bailout'.
3 After the referendum, we will tell Frankfurt-Brussels that the people have spoken and that they believe the terms of the loans will crucify them, that we will have to carry a debt burden into the future which will cripple recovery, and that we will be trapped in a vicious circle making our payments impossible. If bondholders are burned, so be it, that's capitalism.
