Give ministers the boot now

Just to summarise the facts, the world's leading capitalist newspaper, the 'Financial Times', which promotes the free market, suggests that investors and bondholders take a financial hit on their poor choice of investment rather than the poor Irish taxpayer. However, the Government has argued that taxpayers should bear the full cost.

Based on this statement alone, the Government should be thrown out of office. And if the ministers refuse to leave, the people of Ireland should take to the streets in protest.
