John Gormley sent a letter to all Green Party members yesterday which included the following quote:
"The last week has been a particularly difficult one. The final figures for Anglo Irish Bank are simply horrendous. What is even worse – though it has received less attention – is the scale of our deficit. This problem is due to serious errors by previous administrations in managing our economy leading to an unsustainable tax structure and boom. We, the Green Party, are now in the unenviable position of having to help correct this."
Surely the scale of the deficit is directly related to the measures taken since Autumn 2008, for which John and his GP colleagues bear significant responsibility?
