    Default Lenihan highlights 'remarkable turnaround' in economy

    Just when I thought we were going down the tubes

    “Exports are growing. New order books are expanding and business confidence has improved markedly since last year. Tax revenues are stabilising, public expenditure is under control and our budget deficit will shrink next year,” he said
    This is becoming farcical at this stage. First we have that fool O'Keefe promising thousands of jobs and now this. The immediate return of the Celtic Tiger. These guys have lost the plot entirely!

    An if you did not laugh at that one.


    Digicel chairman Denis O’Brien told the conference the economy was at a critical turning point where confidence could make a real difference.

    He said Ireland was “under the microscope” of the international financial community. Irish news providers needed to be increasingly sensitive as to how they presented the news of the day. In practice, that meant reporting both good and bad news

    F--king hell. It's the second coming of Harvey Milk.

    This is becoming more than ridiculous - it is seriously worrying.

    According to RTE this morning, Lenihan has been in contact wit Irish journalists wanting them to 'talk up' the economy, not tell the truth.

    What is it with this government? Do they not understand they are responsible to the electorate? That they should be telling us the truth, not censoring it?

    For too long the third estate ignored the reality of what was happening. They were complicit in the defrauding of Ireland. Lenihan and O'Brien want them to continue, it seems.

    We cannot ignore the fact that we are in a lot of trouble i.e up the creek without a paddle, but when the occasion bit of good news emerges we should be highlighting it and not listensing to the eternal whingeing of some

    Dear Ian,

    I’m sure you saw the FT today. It’s ironic it came out just before our big day. AMT BBDN expected, as you know, to make a killing on behalf of our client in that territory on the day as we have done consistently since we took over the brand.

    yeah im not surprised

    theres been a marked increase in talking up the economy on stations like newstalk in the last week or so and eamon dunphy and co were openly commentating on a dictate from headoffice to do the same a few months back.

    do these idiots ACTUALLY believe they have this influence?

    i know they can saturate the airwaves with it but it doesnt mean the publics stupid enough to believe it. i mean if this crap worked we never wouldve entered recession in the first place when you consider the wall to wall "green jersey" "feck off and commit suicide" "talking down the economy" nonsence of the last three years.
