History will show that this Government did us a great service
The Government received a great kicking at the polls. Was it that bad? I thought it was a reasonably good government considering the 'obstacle race' which it had to run. Each member worked extremely hard to get this country working and solvent once more.
In 2008, the greatest fiscal and economic crash this State has ever witnessed resulted in a debt of €444bn - the second-highest debt of the EU's 28 countries, next to Germany.
Germany has a huge population to repay its debt compared to this country.
