Every decision Lenihan has made has been wrong
In september 2008 Lenihan had the choice to either take temporary state control over the banks to prevent a run on the irish banking system.
Instead himself and Brian Cowen pledged to 'write any cheque necessary to protect confidence in the Irish banking system'
2 years later, all the main Irish banks are nationalised at a cost an order of magnitude greater than their market value
Lenihan and Cowen focused all their efforts on trying to reassure the markets that Ireland is viable and financially stable. Our bond prices are now at 7% and the head of the NTMA has Begged Lenihan to pull out of the next 2 bond auctions.
Now Lenihan is on the radio blaming the markets for not being reasonable and for putting an unfair price on Irish debt.
Lenihan was challenged on newstalk about his quote "this is the cheapest bailout in the world" and his response was that he meant it as the cheapest bailout in the world 'so far'
Honestly, WHAT THE ************************! That's it right there, they are trying to push all the costs into the future, onto future generations, and more politically, onto future governments.
This craven government are sinking this country. They should be removed immediately and should face charges for treason.
