Mr Nice Guy

It is alarming to see the deterioration in the staffing of the health services, the cutting back in our garda services with the increase and the sophistication of crime, and also the proposed and totally unjust water and septic tank charges, making the cost of living intolerable for many.
Savings must be made to finance our health services, the cost of health insurance (which in my case is up 69pc), and also to support our garda services.
We must hold a referendum on our commitments toward Europe. Irish voters are a very discerning race -- we got the position regarding judges' pay and their powers correct. We cannot rely on individual efforts to secure our future for services we are entitled to -- and our 'Mr Nice Guy' towards Europe must end.
