    Default Retail sales slow by 1.7% in January

    Retail sales slow by 1.7% in January - RTÉ News

    So much for the recovery (cough)
    FG/Lab budget cuts/tax hikes seem to continue to punish the retail sector and badly.

    I can't wait for the property tax and water metering to "boost the economy"

    Its to be expected after the fantastic Christmas sales brought forward by retailers. Because of the long gap between pay periods for some people it was expected January to be slightly down.

    Simply put its in line with expectations.

    Indeed, low expectations.

    I wouldn't even bother ... the troll above isn't worth it.

    Ain't no chance of a recovery, people are scared, no consumer confidence and simply no spare cash in the system. I can see many more businesses failing before the year end.

    Plenty of cash with the people I work with, 2 people have just purchased house for investment purposes, everyone booking summer holidays abroad. And many of us and purchased 2013 cars this year.

    If you cant see the recovery then I suggest you need to get out more.

    The quality of the FG hacks on this site seems to be getting even worse if that's possible.

    Just wondering, what is the point of your account. is it specifically to annoy people with your auld blather? if so you really need to get out more, read a book or something. seriously if this is your idea of fun you need to take a moment and consider a few things. just some friendly advice.

    Im here to dicuss politics, why are you here?

    Just because I support Fine Gael and enjoy being a member does that exclude me from engaging in debate?
