Stoicism assists banking elite

Sir -- By acting "stoically", as the Financial Times referred to us with regards to our recent Budget, we the Irish people, are helping members of the banking elite, hubris developers, the current and former governments, who have destroyed and are continuing to destroy our country, to keep their lavish lifestyles and gilt-edged pensions, whilst many of us suffer needlessly. We are fools and we must rise up to the establishment. If we, the people, do not address this crisis head on ourselves, we will continue to face years of austerity, hardship and stagnation by not reacting to this current crisis.

We could also face the alarming possibility of a Sinn Fein government in the not too distant future, who will do a lot worse. In the meantime, as we sit and watch, the establishment of our country continues to prosper and grow.

Don't say I didn't warn you.
