    Default Tallaght strategy Mk II ?

    There's a lot of rumblings in favour of this

    Senators Paul Bradford, Eugene Regan and Pascal Donohue are all on the record in favour - source, source

    Denis O'Brien has explicity called for it, with Enda Kenny rejecting - source

    Cowen and Lenihan are both offering olive branches

    RT News: Cowen will listen to Opposition proposals
    Brian Cowen said he would be making facilities and personnel available in the Department of Finance to answer queries and listen to ideas on overcoming the challenges ahead.
    Lenihan challenges opposition to reveal plans - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie

    So are we heading to a Tallaght strategy Mk II ?

    Is it in the national interest to do it for December's budget + the 4 year framework ?

    How might this impact on Cowen/FF and Kenny/FG ?

    A Tallaght Strategy now would be FF's "get out of jail card"

    If FF want it so bad we can have a tallaght strategy Mk2 when they are in opposition.

    Not at this stage of the government. If FF can't win a finance related vote without opposition support, there will be an election. FG would be stark raving mad to do any sort of deal.

    The Opposition should explicitly offer a Tallaght 2, on one simple condition. After a General election, so that the people can give such a strategy a mandate.
    1,197 people agree with me.. how many agree with you ?

    Precisely. Why should Lab and FG support FF policies after them causing the mess. Let FF swallow their pride and have them engage in a Tallaght Strategy.

    Not at this stage. They have slipped so far down there is no way back. The Limpet Party who swung the last election to FF are facing political extinction. FG and labour have supported some elements of what the government have been doing , for example FG - the bank guarantee and both the Croke Park agreement and the €3 billion in cuts coming up. I don't think we'll get anything like the Tallaght Agreement. Common sense suggests that we need more unborrowed cash - tax increase and reduced spending - cuts.
