Irish January-February Budget Deficit Widened to EU2.41 Bn

€4.74bn is only €60m below ‘trend’ which is very good news around here. This is probably the bext exchequer return in 2 years bar NONE!

Do you have a link the “trend”, as I cant find it anywhere.

€60m behind, in Feb I’d take, but March will be a big month as VAT will returned for Jan/Feb, should the March figures be shyte, well game set and match…

Multi year trend from 17 December 2009
