Budget 2014


#201

Just dont understand the leaking of all this stuff the guy is on his feet in a few hours…


#202

Ja.


#203

More like minutes. Due to start at 2.30


#204

Is there anything left to leak,seems pointless him getting up on his hind legs at this stage given its all pretty much/all out in public domain anyway.


#205

The fcuking theiveing hypocritical cnuts (levy doesn’t apply to their pensions) - can’t wait until they come a calling looking for votes.


#206

We don’t know what colour tie he will be wearing.


#207

If I’d credited the cabinet with an ounce of wit, it would have been fun to have had all this “leaked” and then have Messrs Noonan & Howlin stand up in the chamber and deliver an entirely different budget. :laughing:
Somehow, I don’t think they’d have the imagination or sense of humour for that. :frowning:


#208

Unless they want to have a specific focus on some aspects with the news on the “old reliables” out of the way.


#209

Jaysus must be upwards of 20 Gardai just standing in front of the Dail entance hands in their pockets…

just before baldy puts his hands in ours.


#210

Navy and White for Brendan :wink:

Joe Duffy sez there’s a double decker bus full of Garda around the corner from the Dáil and a garda helicopter overheard…


#212

#215

RTE streaming seems to be suffering… lots of buffering.


#216

Try this one

#217

Um, yeah - wasn’t us that leaked nothing, we wuz stuck in a lift…


#218

Air travel tax gone. Good!


#219

so less incentive to provide a pension for yourself and instead rely on the state

So more tinkering and zero actual fundamental change it is (yet again)

XX


#220

FG gave a commitment in 2011 to abolish the airport departure tax. They have just honoured it :open_mouth:
