    Id destroy the entire political system in the country. Id replace it with a federal type structure based on the Austrian model, a parliament for each of the provinces, with a centralised parliament in Dublin to oversee taxation and foreign affairs. This would boost regional development on a massive scale, as inequality between the bmw region and the south/east would be solved efficiently. Id also review our relationship with the EU, review the use of the Euro, and take a more active approach to Irish re-unification.

    As we have a national economic disaster in Ireland I would declare a state of emergency, banning all strikes and enforcing the average wage as the only wage for Irish citizens.I would then borrow from other threads and declare a dictatorship for the duration of the emergency or until I was ousted or shot or...

    Oh... yes... and of course I would go to work in an armoured car with the military driver supplied by the State of course.

    tracks ... right then maybe not an armoured car to work

    A tank may be more appropriate to my situation as Dictator.

    Excellent suggestions,

    I would add

    Tighten animal cruelty legislation
    Sack the management of RTE (and sack or renegotiate downwards pay of senior presenters)
    Set up a transparent criminal investigation of the property bubble era (with truly neutral judges and lawyers) and the aftermath - televised procedures... Till i get answers.

    I wouldn't do it now but in the future if leaving the Euro becomes inevitable - i would do it then declare that we won't pay our foreign debts (Argentina did this and hasn't stopped booming), two can play economic nationalism Sarko. I believe the world's media knows what a hard place we are in and that much of it simply wasn't our doing anyway - people out there are gambling on the Euro collapsing, a lot of what is happening to the Piigs is being orchestrated.... once we started growing again we would look a good option for foreign bond buyers.

    Decalre myself Brother Leader number one , then immediately declare year zero and march -at gunpoint naturally - quite a sizable chunk of the countrys population into the fileds for character building educational work programmes . Basically the "well got" of the country wouldnt be so well got during my tenure . Then with that clean slate we could start again and do it right this time round under my patient but firm guidance . I can assure you - my people - that the likes of Pat Kenny , Terry Prone and the multitude of opinion formers our media is blessed with will not be heard of in the Irish media gain . And neither will most of our media . Their opinions on the judicial punishment meted out to our political and business class - by new judges , the old ones are struggling around a turf bog outside longford being jabbed with bayonets to make them work faster - wont be heard by the chattering classes under my tenure . And neither will the trendy chattering classes for that matter . The only chattering theyll get up to is with their teeth, in a shuck outside Roscommon in mid winter . All housing developments with pretentious english names will of course be returned back to nature . And the residents questioned as to why they chose to live there . Explanations from the devlopers wont be necessary as it wont do them any good no matter what excuse they come up with . thats just randomly off the top of my head , i can easily think of more .

    I would not abolish the miniumum wage law.. I would employ Peter McVerry as an advisor!
