This was mentioned in closing at the labour conference on Saturday and will be pushing the public sector union agenda.
Since the contributors will defer to socialist doctrine, don't expect to see anything progressive about it.

I thought you said it was mentioned at the Labour conference?!? That's got nothing to do with socialism... :roll:

I have noticed the words "fair", "fairly", "unfair" and "fairness" come up a lot in their postings, which should tell you a lot about the agenda behind that site. That word "fair" was echoed a lot at the labour conference on Saturday, and it is the hot buzzword in trade union circles at the moment.

The site is drivel. It's like the National Enquirer for socialists.

Dunno if this pdf has been linked to. Interesting survey of wealth distro and attitudes in Ireland.

I think its great. It has a pdf listing "tax breaks", most of which are legit business espenses. However there was one listed that I was not aware of, and have the accountant looking at it. Might save a lot (5 figures) in tax.

Thanks to the brothers 8DD
