    Default It has been a picnic so far

    455,000 unemployed slowly but surely becoming long term employed
    160,000 in training - Smart Economy - "a white elephant"
    Increased taxes
    More wage cuts
    Increased charges insurance, esb, bin tags, private healthcare
    Less disposable income
    At least another variable rate mortgage increase this year
    Further disconnections
    2 more years of bad Government
    2 more years of depressing news
    NAMA haven`t even started dumping property yet
    Increased banking charges
    More SMEs failures
    More personal guarantees called in
    Less tourists
    Social welfare cuts
    Public health system at crisis point - more cutbacks
    More public sector levies or wage cuts ( absolutely - 40% of gross expenditure)
    Increased national debt burden
    Deficit next year of €18 - €22 billion
    Bank shares wiped out
    Another €5 billion plus for Anglo / INBS

    You forgot the 10 - 15 BN needed for AIB.
