    The Trick Or Treat budget. Trick the ‘ordinary’ (as they put it) taxpayers, Treat the banks and landlords. FG – the Landlord Party.

      The landlord mortgage tax relief wasn’t even mentioned in the RTE 9 news yesterday evening, which is quite extraordinary.

        RTE get their money from FG. There’s a price to pay, and it’s paid up on time. every time .

      Like the Madness song

      Welcome to the house of fun (O B is on his way)
      Welcome to the lions den (more tax you and I will pay)

    This isn’t a budget for the “squeezed middle”, it’s a budget for welfare recipients, landlords and builders.

    Social Welfare is making a mockery of anyone trying to raise a family on less than €50k per annum.

      Need to start tapering off Social Welfare
      No one should be on it more than 2 years
      I’m not including illness benefit for actual physically disabled/mentally disabled and unable to work.

    I do hope the blushirts won’t interfere with Emma’s remains as it pasts government buildings, though their past history with dead and dying women suggests to expect anything from them..

      I’m glad to hear they are flying the flags on all Government Buildings at half-mast for her.

      Does that meet the interference you’re looking for?

        We’ll see if they don’t try and drag the remains through the courts, that’s what they like to do, it’s in their nature..

    These 10,000 new homes promised, how will these differ from the ones promised 2 years ago which are still not built? 1,700 homes were promised in 2016, a year later not one was started. So will 5 times as many have 5 times the delay.

      And with a severe housing shortage where will the 33,900 new non-Irish people who arrived here within the last year to April 2018 live ?
      Social housing and private rented accommodation mostly.
      10,000 new homes won’t even cover the number of non-nationals who have immigrated to Ireland since then.
      These are official facts not waycism.

    Piers Morgan unaware of Churchill’s blatant racism?

    Another product of the flawed English education system.

    1. Ollie Cromwell

      Without Churchill Ireland would be a subservient lapdog of Germany with no control over its economy and currency.
      Oh,hang on a minute ….

    There was a story on the front of yesterday’s Star about Una O’Hagan allegedly being arrested. What happened there? It hasn’t been picked up by other media outlets.

    1. AL Jeers

      According to the Star Journalist who wrote the piece “Mr Keane, who has written extensively about near death experiences, refused to leave a scene where a man was being given CPR after almost drowning in the River Lee…”.
