    Default Top 5 priorities for Ireland for 2013

    Think about it...

    What would you say are the 5 most important things that should be prioritised in Ireland in 2013?

    Here's what I've come up with...

    1. Sustainable Debt

    - We need a deal with the EU on our long term debt management, whether part write off, part over the longer term or whatever the exact terms. That has to be the number one priority for 2013.

    2. Deal with the past


    - There has been too much superficial and populist scapegoating and not enough genuine and solid analysis and honest conversations about the boom/bust. We need proper discussion and catharsis as a nation to be able to move on and to ensure we don’t repeat the mistakes of the past.

    3. Be positive about the future


    - The doom and gloom is too much, particularly on the young. We need to stop talking ourselves down and have confidence in our ability to create a worthwhile future.

    4. Education


    - There’s a wise old saying that “education will set you free.” Investment in education is more important now than ever...

    5. Reward the right thing


    - As a society, we need to be more honest about our values. When people do the right thing, we need to acknowledge and reward their courage more.

    Point 2 Deal with the past

    We need to look further back than the 90's-00's. We need to stop acting like cap doffing peasant tenants with no self esteem and take charge of our country, stop the rot by each individual adopting a responsible moral stance in every sphere of life, rewrite the constitution and begin again.

    To state the obvious: Tawdy either doesn't have the intellectual ability to understand a phrase like "Here's what I've come up with" as being a person's opinion or he's one of the site's trolls.

    If he's one of the site's trolls whose goal in life is to derail threads, then he should be banned. The site is the worse for this kind of trolling.

    There is a definite need to make a reappraisal of the startegy of this country.

    In fact what is this country's strategy ?

    Do we have one apart from "go along with whatever the clowns in Brussels decide" ???
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.
