    Tis really is disgraceful... I've tried and tried and tried to stop directly attacking the Government because I don't believe all this abuse or Zanu-FF nonsense makes for good debate, and frankly only re-directs peoples focus on the problems we face...

    But I finally cracked hearing this on the radio this morning... screaming a variety of obscenities to myself in the car...

    And juxtoposed against a simpering Willie O Dea refusing to acknowledge any fault for our economic mess, while saying we "have to re-capitalise the banks"


    Absolutely effing disgraceful

    Batt is one evil bastar%. This govt. is truly despicable, we have a Minister for Finance, who is enthrall to Power and FF, even though God only knows, what they did with the money, they collected to help his dying father. A minister for Health, that can't come up with 10 million for a cervical cancer jab, that will save approx. 80 lives a year, while flying out with friends and family to Florida to get 400 dollar haircuts at taxpayers expenses, who uses the Govt. jet to travel to open friends's businesses. They are

    Default FF/Greens cutbacks target children with learning disabilities

    The Department of Education is to cut special teacher support for over 500 primary school children with learning disabilities.
    In all, 128 special teaching posts will be lost, affecting 534 children in 119 schools across the country.
    The INTO has called it 'an outrageous dismantling of the special education infrastructure', committed only for financial reasons.



    Following on form their disgraceful decision not to innoculate children against cervical cancer, the government has now decided to make children with learning disabilities pay for the economic meltdown

    Disgraceful.

    I have members of my family on the AS Spectrum and this is disgusting.............................

    The Government should scrap funding for that crap PC School Model "Educate Together" which is a waste of money and a drain on our financial resources!

    More money should be invested in these already under-funded services!

    This is Brian Cowen's fault.

    His historical mismanagement of the economy means we do not have the resources to fund these services.

    We must not get away from this absolute truth.
