Taoiseach, it's not your fault

We must remember that this Government was only elected last February. It inherited an economy and a country in a total financial mess, which had been mismanaged by Fianna Fail/Progressive Democrat and Fianna Fail/Green governments for 13 years.

Look at the present situation. National debt, €163.8bn. Total Budget expenditure, €55.8bn. Total tax income, €39.8bn. Our national debt servicing, €7.2bn.
