Sinn Féin are the only political party on the opposition side to reject the Fianna fail /Fine Gael/Labour 2014 timescale. They are backed by the ESRI and The trade union economic experts. The three main partys are now firmly alligned and I wonder have Labour been hoodwinked by their lust for power and a desire not to upset Fine Gael pre election. They could have hardly gone against the FF/FG concensus and alligned themselves with SF given that SF had firmly stated that its madness to take billions out of an economy in such a tight time frame !. Where did the 2014 timescale come from , ? of course the EU and the "markets". and the demand for "Concensus" the markets again. One of the main tenets of soveriegnty, that of financial independance has been sold off, Irish budgets have to be approved by those who have no interest in the well being of Irish citizens.
Are those who will post here shortly denouncing SF economic policy on this issue are automatically backing the concensus partys position. ?
