expect ours to be tougher

Ireland Announces Tough Budget

Unemployment is also predicted to continue spiralling, peaking at 7.3% in 2009. Mr Lenihan said: "We are a small nation facing a major challenge in these uncertain times. "We must all pull together if we are to return to more prosperous times." Taxes in Ireland are set to rise as the Irish Government seeks to raise an extra 2 billion Euro to meet spending targets. A 1% income tax levy on annual salaries over 100,000 Euro is to be introduced and VAT will be raised by 0.5%.

  • I don’t expect ours to be tough at all, except for possibly some spending cuts. They will not want to increase a single tax if they can get away with it – their plan will be to borrow their way out of the problem and let the Tories worry about the consequences after the 2010 election.

    I expect that our [email protected] of a Prime Minister will wait for the dead cat to reach the top of it’s bounce before calling a SNAP ELECTION (They only need 4 weeks notice)
