Party of ridicule does so no more

Remember some weeks ago when Standard and Poor's stated that the cost of Anglo to the State would be around €35bn and it was ridiculed by every Fianna Failer? Remember when Fine Gael stated that it would take 10 years to fix the economy and it was ridiculed by every Fianna Failer?

Now remember Thursday morning when the Taoiseach, Finance Minister, Financial Regulator and the governor of the Central Bank announced to the world that the cost of Anglo will be at least €30bn.

Now remember the interviews given by our most infallible Finance Minister on Thursday where he said it would take 10 to 15 years to fix the economy. No further comment, I leave the rest to the reader.
