No removal of context whatsoever. Stop being dishonest.

You begin by saying there are members of the public service who do important work ("essential staff who need to be looked after"), then you go on to say that there are no public service jobs that you consider to be worthwhile.

What magical property of context can resolve that conflict?

Of course they do worthwhile jobs, overpaid and over pensioned worthwhile jobs.

Thank the lord they're not emergency workers, they'd never be there......

Not that shocking really as the PS average is 11 days a year.

I don't. I'd fire every single teacher and social worker in the country. They are two of the worst jobsworth professions in this country failing children at most levels.

BY way of answer to your question about concrete policies here are some on the promotion of small business -



In the event of NAMA not opening the flow of credit to small business (ROFL) ( which it probably won't), they propose to establish a State Wholesale Bank for this purpose.
More ROFL.

They propose a jobs tax cut. By cutting employers PRSI amongst other taxes, they propose a reduction of 887 million euro in employment taxes.
ROFL

They propose to reduce VAT.
ROFL


They propose to abolish the Travel Tax.
ROFL

They propose to freeze commercial rates.
Edit: Missed this one: ROFL
They propose to improve the interaction between the state and Irish business. By making the tendering process more accessible to fledgling irish businesses, and by insisting on prompt payment by the state. ( The latter is a serious issue for many companies at the moment.) #
Ehm, ROFL



Btw I am no FG hack. I simply lifted these from their website. Individually some are micro in nature, and they are not the complete picture, but what appeals is that they show an understanding of the day-to-day issues of small business here and entrepreneurism in general. (heh heh heh) Neither are they overly wedded to ideology, but rather to pragmatism.
Seriously ROFL

This is actually, in my opinion, what is wrong - people don't understand that these are actual, real, pristine lies - so they vote for the people telling them.

Paddy, its time to stop bleating and pretending that there are no differences or no concrete policies out there. That kind of shitetalk gets us nowhere.
See above.

In summary, FG have carried on where FF left off.
Actually, they are still successfully implementing FF policy.
People think FG are more in touch with the "man on the street" than FF were.

Still though - hang tight:
They all assessed their performances after 1 year in gov. last week.
Result: Sterling work all around. (this is their actual assessment - of themselves)
In fact, they wanted to walk around the shop carrying big yellow stars on saturday but Kenny scuppered it after Bunny Rabbitte got sore that his boys weren't getting any stars to carry around the garden in the Dail.

I wish I was able to do my own performance assessments.

That'd be, like, awesome.

Look where all the shitetalk has gotten the whole country, Vanilla Iceman

The avalanche of emigration has hardly begun.

The country is fucked, literally, beyond repair for the next 20 years.

I wish I was being dramatic.

Still though . Let's talk ourselves up.

Hot air rises like a mofo.
