    Default Budget to be brought forward to November?

    Irish Times Economics Editor Dan O'Brien has said on Newstalk moments ago that based on discussions he's had with sources, the likelihood of the budget being brought forward to mid-November is looking strong.

    He seemed highly reluctant to go into any further detail - but it's sure to add speculation as to the Government's plans, coupled with the 4-year budget plan due in mid-November.

    It makes sense. The chilling effect of all the speculation on spending much be considerable. Of course the reality may be even more chilling.

    So an early Christmas present to the country from the ever caring Fianna Fail, Its so nice to give at Christmas and Fianna Fail will give us all a good shafting.

    An early budget will destroy the Christmas sales and plunge us nearer to the IMF when the tax receipts drop to another all time low.

    At least it should trigger a GE and the end of this disasterous administration.

    Budget next year should be in September / October. Allow people to prepare for budget 2012 instead of the usual 3 week window. People need to have confidence and know how there disposable income is to be effected.

    Also they should bring the self employed tax payment dates back to June 30th.

    We need more certainty as to total tax take earlier in the year instead of waiting until November exchequer returns in early December.

    At last, a sensible decision, if it's true. This waiting around for December's budget is like sitting in an airplane with one engine on fire. Personally, I want to know what we have to deal with. Not knowing is what's getting people down. It's killing any impetus to plan and spend.

    Bring it on, FF!

    Then we'll say our goodbyes as you leave the building.

    Don't the government have to submit the 4 year budget plan to the EU by mid November anyway? If that is already prepared in a couple of weeks it makes sense to just this years budget over and done with instead of dragging on.
