    It’s amazing how many people fall for the style over substance that is Fine Gael. We have more serious problems now than we did before they came into office and a wider gap between rich and poor.

    The cost of living is beyond the scope of most households so any improvement In the economy is cancelled out.

    Most of those working in the so called Digital Industry are not even Irish.

      “We have more serious problems now than we did before they came into office”
      2011 when FG took over, Vs now:
      unemployment 16%; now 6%
      GNI* 140bn; now 185bn
      Earning: €35.8K, now €37.4K
      Household debt: €195bn, now 155bn
      Government deficit: -9.5bn, now +4.5bn
      Government deficit (incl interest): -15.2bn, now -0.5bn
      Migration: 27,000 leaving; now 20,000 arriving
      NAMA: owed 32bn; now owes less than 2bn

      “What did the Romans FG ever do for us?”

      There are still problems that need to be fixed (high rents, homelessness, etc) but we are in a better place to deal with them now than in 2011.

        Now I can see those figures Cian, I can really feel that recovery…I’m tingling all over and a €50 just materialised in my wallet! Percival can eat his words because what he said it totally wrong.

            Oh dannyboy, is there any point answering that…well I’m here now so…it’s possible in this day and age to do both. Mad so it tis. A good point though and very well made.

          dannyboy of ibec has some good advice as usual.
          Cian’s ideology prevents him from ever seeing the flip side of the “enormous” economic recovery. Who has paid for this dramatic turnaround in fiscal affairs? Does he care? I very much doubt it. Keep spewing the mendacious communications unit’s propaganda young man. You’ll be suited in your Hugo Boss uniform in jig time. The other minions were all on copy on all the drive time shows tonight. You should be proud of yourselves. Keep it up

            Ha! – your economic indicators and data are no match for italia’s and Boj’s unsupported assertions, Cian.

            It’s like that cartoon on the New Yorker this week. “Let me interrupt your expertise with my confidence”.
