    Default The Budget 2007

    I'm surprised that there hasn't been a thread started on this just yet.

    Brian Cowen is delivering the 2007 Budget. You can watch it here.

    I noticed some of your guys shaking their heads during the intro to the environmental measures.

    Increased credits, bands, lower upper rate, increase in relief of various types, Revenue campaign to allow people to know better what they're entitled to.

    Even if you can't listen to it, The Irish Times has the script on as subtitles on their video.
