The Labour Party launched its Alternative Budget 2020….

Labour leader Brendan Howlin warned the Fine Gael economic “recovery” is failing to work for large parts of the country, saying some areas still face 8% unemployment rates while one in four are working low-paying jobs.

With the threat of a no deal Brexit looming on the horizon, he said vulnerable people must be protected, in next Tuesday’s budget, with specific measures needed to improve employment levels in areas outside of Dublin…

Irish Georgian Society, Dublin 2.

Green Party leader Eamon Ryan has thrown down the environmental gauntlet to Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil by insisting next week’s budget must be the start of a decade of green policies to save the country.

Mr Ryan made the claim at the launch of his party’s alternative budget, saying “a decade-long strategy for a carbon neutral Ireland” is vital if a “secure future for the next generation” is to be achieved.

    In doing some fact checking (re a wild claim made by a supporter of Sasamach), I spent a little time earlier today searching for news items about food banks in Ireland. The picture of iJoan smiling broadly as she cut the inaugural ribbon at a food bank warehouse hasn’t aged well.

    That FG threats campaign turned out to be Labour’s manifesto. I can’t in all good conscience vote for them while Howlin, Burton et al still have their snouts in the trough.
