More Austerity for Ireland
The text and footage of Enda Kenny's pre-budget address to the nation can be found here. Can the Irish people take more austerity?
My fear is that austerity for years to come will only result in the empowerment of political parties who will take Ireland in a backwards and inwards-looking direction. European (German) leaders need to wake up and realise that harsh austerity measures can only result in long-term political instability in the PIIGS.
