Budget 2010

It was predicted to be harsh & it certainly was http://www.budget.gov.ie/ , everyone's a little poorer after today, unless you are an electric car driving, alcoholic chain smoking pensioner, who is carbon neutral.

The Public Service got a right royal fucking, the 5% cut on salaries under € 30k is very harsh, exactly the same as the cut imposed in our company & I thought it very harsh there too, I thought my cut of 7.5% even fucking harsher though.

Wont be too many people feeling sorry for our economy / retail sector after this budget, expect to see even bigger tailbacks into Newry & beyond. The carbon tax on coal and peat products will encourage people to travel over the border also..
