    Default Todays report has been caused by FF incompetence.

    There are a number of threads on the bord snip report, and this is not another one. I am a believer in stopping problems before they start. So, lets look at what brought us to this point.

    FF are now going to attack the public sector, pitting private workers against public. They are trying to focus a debate on what should be cut. This is all a smokescreen. We need to examine why we are at this point, and we need to make sure we are never here again.

    Fact : Our public services is one of the highest paid in the work. Why? Simple, we had an FF fueled housing bubble. People needed to be paid more to pay for somewhere to live. Who gave the massive payrises? Who was responsible for benchmarking? Who let the fire burn out of control?

    Brian Cowen is responsible for this. He was the minister for finance who did nothing as the economy roared out of control. Our economy has now crashed, and Cowen was at the wheel, driving us full speed into a wall.

    We are all being told to expect pain and to "put our shoulders to the wheel". Has anybody seen Seanie Fitz taking some pain? Muckey Fingers walked away from INBS with a €29 million. Most of the rest of the developers are not paying their loans. The TD's are not giving back the pensions due to "legal issues". Martin Cullen still flies around in helicopters. The gravy train is still running full steam ahead.

    FF let their property friends run riot and that is what has caused this mess. Its not international factors.

    FF and their cronies are to blame for this mess. Dont forget this. Ignore all the sideshows, deflections and spin. They must be punished accordingly.

    There are around 30 Ministers and Juniors. All vastly overpaid and pensioned, with cars, large constituency offices, drivers, retirement packages. Yet they don't have the balls to make cuts when the economy falters, they need to invite in an outsider to avoid decision making. They should be in jail.

    So FF now ran the banks?

    Playing the blame game will not turn around the situation that was caused by an over exhuberent banking system and a global meltdown

    Well Ahern and Seanie Fitz were very close pals.

    They were supposed to regulate them, the failed to do it. They allowed property to bubble, a shit former council house in Drimnagh/Crumlim used to cost €600k, yup, thats 20X the average salary.

    FF we at the wheel as this happened. FF are responsible.

    The credit crunch is a different issue. It is related to the Irish problem, but it is not the main reason.

    Ahern did everything in his power to fuel the property speculation market in Ireland with ridiculous tax breaks for unsaleable developments, buying votes with daft benchmarking deals, decentralisation (and we all know who bought up land immediately before the locations were announced).
