Time for unity, not petty squabbling
IT is time we toned down the strident and seemingly endless public squabbling about the roots of our economic problems. It is time the people of Ireland made a collective decision to stop beating our breasts and move forward together.
The tone of the national conversation about the banks and the budgetary deficit, in particular, has been shrill, repetitive and contradictory.
The Irish Independent challenges the value of such shambolic and hysterical debate. We have heard all the recriminations and all the theories about alternative strategies and we are not impressed.
