    Default Budget Day - what's on your wish list?

    Tomorrow, Brian Cowen will announce the 2007 Budget in the Dáil, Politics.ie will bring you live coverage, point by point, as it happens.

    In the meantime, what's on your wishlist for the budget? If you were to make a budget submission, what would you be asking for?

    Should the tax bands change? Should the minimum wage change? Talk to Politics.ie ......

    First-time buyers get all the sweets. I'm hoping he does something nice for second-time buyers.
    Nothing will motivate the lazy / apathetic / Americanised / west-British types to embrace their culture and the Irish language.

    My budget day wishlist............ A successful coup d'état whereby armed guerillas burst into Leinster House during the budget speech, and declare Ireland a 32-county socialist republic and immediately set about implementing the Democratic Programme of the first Dáil, whereupon they open up on all reactionary and anti-revolutionary TDs with AK47s...... No? Oh sorry, wrong meeting............

    You also got the wrong day. The budget is tomorrow. Burst into the Dail today with your AK47's and the only thing you are likely to disturb are the mothballs!
