Europe must share our burden and make sacrifices

To hell with the law, our best prospect of recovery is to burn the bondholders, writes James Fitzsimons

THEY gave us hope. But in less than 100 days it was taken away again. Now we face the prospect of higher taxes, rising interest rates, default on our loans at home and abroad.

Even public spending cannot be controlled because those in change refuse to take responsibility for their part in this debacle. All that has changed is the nameplate over the door.

They hit the ground running, but already they are up to their necks in it and we are going nowhere. They made empty promises and gave us false hope. Unless they pull a rabbit out of the hat in the next few days the new Government has failed to impress.
