Axe needn't fall to save €3bn

MAY I suggest to our esteemed Finance Minister, Brian Lenihan, that he take on board Willie Slattery's proposal to seek 30,000 voluntary redundancies from the civil and public service thereby saving €2bn?
Ed Walsh suggests that €1bn is wasted every year in teaching Irish in our schools, with very little positive impact.
It is a free country, let those who speak Irish do so without trying to impose it on everybody else at an astronomical cost to the taxpayer.
