Thread: David Begg: It's Because The Germans Won't Get Their Boot Off Our Necks In Terms Of Our Debt

    Default David Begg: It's Because The Germans Won't Get Their Boot Off Our Necks In Terms Of Our Debt

    Now David Begg General Secretary of Irish Congress of Trade Unions is known for his colorful language with a belligerent bite. On the Prime Time Budget Special 2013 (35:00) last night he used the battle of the Somme as an analogy for the current fiscal struggle in Ireland where the Germans won't get their boot off our neck in terms of debt and that's the core problem.

    David again cuts the analyses short and identifies a non present foreign target to roll out his war stories and visions of total annihilation.

    Didn't the trade unions play their part in destroying the country? Didn't FF buy them off and help them to expand the public sector debt to the point where it is today? Or is it really only a foreign power that controls the destiny of this state to its demise?

    It's time for David Begg to grow up and take responsibility for his own actions and the current situation. The Croke Park Agreement needs to be looked at again, the public sector bill is still unsustainable even after the new budget. Spending €14 billion more than one makes in revenue is the real problem David and the unions have to accept that this can't go on.

    The beards would not like to see the mother ship have to leave government and leave the country to the nasty FG hobbits.

    I do believe one day we'll have honest political debates in this country, one day.
