Brian Greene Budget comment

‘Fairness must be the cornerstone of all our efforts to achieve economic renewal,’ so said Finance Minister Brian Lenihan in his Budget Speech.  A monstrous political lie because he went on to announce the most unfair, savage and immoral Budget in the history of the State.

With rising unemployment, the slashing of the jobseekers allowance by €100 per week is a vicious attack on young working class people. The workers on North Dublin are being asked to bailout the bankers, the builders and their government friends, we say NO.

Ninety years ago James Connolly said, ‘The time for patching up the capitalist system is past, it must go.’ and Brian Greene says this Fianna Fail / Green Party government should go with it.
