Thread: Huge public support for co-operation on Budget

  1. #1

    Default Huge public support for co-operation on Budget

    Default

    Although this seems strange if most people are happy with co-operation on a budget

    ''A majority of those polled would like to see an early General Election -- 34 per cent before the Budget and 31 per cent immediately afterwards, with just 35 per cent happy to see this Government run its full term.''

    so am I right in thinking 65% want a GE sooner rather than later!

    The most important thing that nobody wants to pay property tax
    Plus it is interesting to see that people don’t want to pay for time wasters in public sector and public wants compulsory redundancies in public sector.
    What is strange is that question about welfare cuts has not been asked

    Do the poor sods actually think it will make any difference?

    It makes a difference who gets stuck with the bill. 13% for a property tax means the public servants who are flocking to Labour don't want social democracy let alone socialism. They just want to hold what they have.

    If this poll is true the Irish people aren't even that pushed about democracy. They want the parties to come together and shaft the poor. I'd hate to be looking for a revolution from that lot.

    Its a poll from your favourite Sunday right wing rag, i.e. Sunday Independent, so you can proceed with caution. They were pushing the national government line not so long ago, now they want the 'public' consensus on a budget. Screw them. When the new coalition gets in next time, there will be payback.

    I agree and a survey can be worded to get the answer you want!

    it contradicts it self when so many want a GE how can the same people want co operation on a budget!

    It will make a difference alright,

    none of the wimps in Leinster house would be able to put through any kind of measure that would offend any vested interest or lobby group without the protection of all of them covering each other's own asses...

    what will happen if none of these sorry fools collude? Half measures and skirting around the edges and decimating what's left of our capital budget.
