    Default So SF were right.. we should have burned the bondholders...

    Economic illiterates eh ?

    Haven't a clue eh ?

    The sky would have fallen down eh ?

    And then eventually, years later, after huge, ongoing austerity... one of the main architects of the IMF bailout deal admits what SF have been saying all along..

    Austerity wouldn't work.. and we should have burned the bondholders...

    Too much austerity, says former IMF mission chief - RTÉ News

    No doubt it won't be long before this thread is de-railed by the usual ballsology... but when you listen to the sleeveens who demanded that Irish people impoverish themselves and their children and their grandchildren... you begin to understand why were were loading up ships full of meat and grain during the famine..

    T'would make you sick to be honest
    1,197 people agree with me.. how many agree with you ?

    They backed the Bank Guarantee.

    Why don't you rejoin them?

    Spot on.At this stage most people with half a brain know that the real economic illiterates are in ff fg and labour and you know what these idiots actually think that they can fix capitalism which is now as defunct as communism.Thats the really sad part.

    As has been proven time and again on this site SF did not back the guarantee they backed the previous legislation that allowed for emergency legislation and a bank guarantee, when the actual guarantee was voted on they opposed it. This has been posted with links to the debate and names and votes on other threads on this site.

    A huge PR victory for Sinn Fein. Another building block to credibility in the Republic as an alternative to FF, FF lite and the Labour / Welfare party.

    You make it sound like Ireland actually had a choice.

    And that was a stupid move.. but once they had a chance to look at what backing the guarentee meant, they rejected the notion that all senior bondholders had to be repaid, and that the way forward was to impose harsh austerity measures.. do you not consider it something to be proud of that one can change their position when it becomes obvious that a particular course is wrong.. or do you think when you're wrong, you should just plough ahead anyway

    And because I have no interest in being constricted by the policies of a political party.. I prefer to have the ability to think for myself

    The little village,backwater primary school teachers in the personae of Kenny and Noonan knew best. Wonder how they'll skip around this one?
