    Default Should we have a GE before the Budget?

    Is it possible to set up a poll on this question?

    In the last few days I have come to the conclusion that we should have a GE before the Budget.

    I believe it would clear the air and give people a realistic insight into the state of the finances. It would give the new government a mandate to make the necessary cuts and help stabilise the lending rates to which Ireland is subject to on the international markets.

    What do p.ie members think?

    We must get rid of this Fianna Fáil government as soon as possible.

    Their replacements can't be as bad as them.

    There should be no democratic input into any major decisions in this country. 90% are not fit to know what is good for them. Another leaders from a well got political familt should be appointed and we should all accept whatever they deem best. Democracy will bring instablity.

    Oh, since when has there been any "democratic" input into the decisions of the government?

    Why do you say this?

    Do you not think that the next government is going to introduce an even tougher budget? You are delusional to think otherwise!

    It's not about how tough the budget is going to be. We all know that whoever is in power will have to do the same where budgets are concerned. It's about competence and trust especially from the standpoint of international markets.

    Are you of the opinion that the market makers do not trust the present government?
