Gormley wasted own opportunity

GREEN Party leader John Gormley heralds the arrival of the IMF as an "opportunity to restructure Ireland's economy in a way that should have been done years ago".

The appropriate translation of this is that successive Irish governments, including the one that Mr Gormley is part of, are incapable of governing an economy, incapable of taking any meaningful decisions.

It is expected that the IMF will ensure that some genuinely "difficult decisions" will be taken, rather than the spineless, short-sighted, meandering incompetence we have come to expect from our Government.
