Being run to ruin
• There is a lot of discussion about the harshness and fairness of the latest Budget. To me at least, that matters little, compared to the gaping lack of strategic leadership and direction in its contents. However, it probably does enough to satisfy the troika paymasters.
I am annoyed, but should I be surprised? What more should I expect when I elect a bunch of schoolteachers, solicitors, publicans and career politicians to run the country?
But then again, what choice do I have?
