We're not past denial I reckon.
What I mean is that people are not connecting the dots between the fucked country, the fucked banks, and the property market. They are seen as islands. Most people haven't really been affected yet by the fucked country or the fucked banks, even though they've seen the big numbers every time a new bailout is announced.
Denial! Denial! Denial!
What? Most people haven't been affected? So whats the feckin Universal Social Charge for then? Whats the reduction on pension contributions for then? What are the extra levies being paid by the public sector and everybody else for then? What are the reductions on what you can claim on a Med 1 or 2 for? Heres a suggestion have a look at your next payslip and get someone to explain it to you.
Thanks for the attack.
I firmly believe that in spite of the USC, pension contributions, levies and tax break reductions, it is not reflective of the scale of the problem. It is plugging a 19bn hole with a 4bn plug. The true scale of what has happened to Ireland has not yet filtered down, thanks to ECB liquidity and the IMF bailout.
Surely you can't deny this?
I'm well aware of what's happened with my payslip thanks very much, and I would point out that I am not in denial myself.
