Budget will result in a lost decade

This week's report by the ESRI has warned that the tough Budget cuts proposed for December will lead to a lost decade and one-in-10 people unemployed. Where in the name of goodness has the ESRI been hiding for the past few months?

Even the dog on the street would know that taking money out of people's pockets will lead to less being spent in the economy and more business closures.

The most vulnerable in society should be protected above everything and very few government ministers or EU officials have spoken out about this.

This Budget is going to decimate the country and will only placate the EU and keep this Government in the lifestyle they have become so comfortable with. It is an absolute disgrace what they are doing to us all.
