    Default Varadkar - "Get the bad news over with a €6 billion budget"

    Writing in tomorrows Sunday Business Post, Leo Varadkar has call for a short sharp shock of budget cuts totalling €6 billion

    Included in his plan is

    -€3.5 billion in cuts based on the Bord Snip Nua report

    -€450 million in saving based on a massive public sector redundancy programme (offering 6 weeks pay per year of service)

    - water charges €150million


    wonder if this is now FG policy ?

    I wonder what Enda thinks ?

    someone should ask him tonight !

    I wouldn't vote for it, but it at least show some thinking outside the box!

    Leo is trying to sound like a statesman. Let Biffo and Ahern and others do this, they fuppud us into it.
    You'd think Kenny committed Treason and brought in IMF. Cowen had all in stitches in Galway at 3.30a.m.but he was "not impaired" -DD Power. FF=Publican páirtí an IMF.

    I have never felt this way about a man before. I love him. I really think I do. Now, exactly how do I get him into the Taoiseach's seat?

    First get the Taoiseach very drunk. That will be the easy part.

    there is an argument to be made in favour of a short sharp shock, after all we have had 2 years of misery all ready with 4 more at least to come

    JUST GET ON WITH IT

    He also says that concurrent to his €6billion in cuts he'd fund a massive stimulus package (next gen broadband, school buildings, forrestry and water services) by taking money from the NPRF and selling off the semi states

    Fully agree with him. Endless worrying about budgets is destroying the country.

    will be interested in seeing the details but it certainly has merit at least conceptually
