    Default Squeaky bum time. Families will pay an extra 3000 in taxes.

    Grant Thornton have done an analysis of the budget and believe that this level of tax increases is very likely. Families may face additional €3,000 tax burden in budget - The Irish Times - Tue, Nov 13, 2012

    Displaying a tremendous grasp of the obvious, they state: “With at least €3.5 billion euro being sought from expenditure savings and tax increases, we will all be feeling considerably less well off on December 5th.”

    Indeed. Inevitable?

    Families can be asked to pay an extra €3000 in taxes.

    But most won't be able to afford such rises.

    Yes, and they reckon €3,000 is a minimum.

    Looking for more tax when the worst excesses of social welfare abuse and the worst excesses of public sector allowances have been allowed to prevail is a travesty of leadership.

    They'll be paying loads of corporation tax though, so it's all good.

    Not if the leadership involves the leader and his/her cronies having their noses deep in the trough it ain't...

    In fact considering how screwed Ireland is... it could be argued that the leadership have done a tremendous job in keeping the fat salaries, pensions and pay offs for themselves and their ilk as well as failing miserably to tackle the ludicrous CPA...
