NEXT September, this Government plans to do something reactionary and foolish that will cost us further billions. For years, during the Celtic Bubble, their policies were deeply reactionary and foolish. And since the bubble burst their policies have been equally reactionary -- and arguably even more foolish.

The key to understanding the Cowen/Lenihan debacle is this -- they must preserve everything as it is, as far as possible.

The same people, the same structures, the same inequality, the same unfairness -- whatever the cost. The mugs will pick up the tab for the greed and foolishness of the elite.
