    I believe it is the 7th of December.


    P.S. Incidentally, this is the anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

    unles of course the dail is disolved on the basis of the budget failing to pass and would insigate a GE and the budget would b delayed however the two other parties dont want this one tu be of their making

    To paraphrase Frankie Boyle, and to think of the later days of that war, for a FF TD to vote for this Budget is like being handed a pair of flying goggles by Emperor Hirohito.

    Here are some other parallels...

    1941 - Pearl Harbour (Tora! Tora! Tora! Aren't we great!)
    1942 - Midway (Uh oh; things have turned; this next gamble had better work)
    1945 - Hiroshima, Nagasaki (abject surrender)

    2007 - FF election victory
    2008 - Bank guarantee
    2011 - Budget impact, return to the bond markets
