Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week. Part the Second August 26, 2012Posted by Garibaldy in Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week.
Poor coordination with WBS on my part. Apologies.
With the attention to detail for which he’s so justly famous, Marc Coleman offers us this
ADMIRATION for a genocidal maniac (Lenin) aside, Enda Kenny’s speech last Sunday was quite a good one.
Mentioning someone means admiring them now.
James Fitzsimons has an interesting take on what constitutes a business
When will anyone in Government take action to support private business and use their powers to make sure the rest do what is expected? We’ve had enough quangos that defend the administration and preserve the status quo. That’s why public spending is out of control and the national debt is more than we can ever hope to pay back.
The EU didn’t bail us out. Now it’s up to us. So let’s bankroll those who can generate cash and have done so already. If we spent half as much on recapitalising businesses that are hanging in there, as we did on the banks, our troubles would be over.
So giving all our money for generations to buy the debts of private banks doesn’t constitute supporting private business then? Good to know.
Jody Corcoran has discovered the worst thing about Enda Kenny’s speech last week.
At Beal na Blath last year, Brian Lenihan outlined three elements essential to the recovery, among them the need to ensure that credit was available for businesses and households.
Kenny is 18 months in office. Three days after his oration, the Central Bank laid bare the failure of his Government to meet this most basic element on the road to recovery.
There we are. The answer to our problems. Follow the Fianna Fáil economic path and all will be well. Oh, and it was of course 2010 and not last year that Lenihan spoke. If you’re going to make fun of Kenny’s Lenin howler, helps to do so in a piece where you have your own facts right.
