I do not propose to post a link to that website from these parts, but I note that Fine Gael have added a clock to their homepage which purports - I stress the word - to count the monies being added to the national debt by the Government's national restoration plan.
We can therefore take it that this clock is being endorsed by Fine Gael.
Since the infamous day when they took a shilling off the old age pension, through the historic display of meanness that was the attempt to tax childrens shoes, and right up till this moment, Fine Gael have been a party that simply do not want to spend money.
They have repeatedly shown, throughout their history, that they will begrudge a pensioner a few pence and a child a pair of shoes because they are so mean.
Once again today, we are seeing evidence of the party's historic meanness. This national debt is essential to pay for essential services, including the Dáil, local councillors, údarás na Gaeilge, and a range of other bodies. Without us incurring this debt, there are countless men and women who would go hungry. Banks would collapse. The airport would close. The EU would throw us out. The GAA would see attendances plummet. The average joe could no longer buy a pint.
This debt is keeping us in business. The fact that Fine Gael are attacking it is evidence that they would sooner see people starve than spend the money necessary. But sure we knew that. The pensioners knew it back in 1930.
