If FF are waiting for these people to do their dirty work then Cowen and his muppets need to be skinned and hung to the lamp posts. Once again it is truely disheartining to see the government opposition sitting there oblivious to all of this. They truely are a bunch of slack jawed simpletons.
The opposition are a bunch of ineffective hopeless losers. If they were not, they would have walked the last general election.
Secondly, FF can't wait
for the IMF to do the dirty work for them. The government of the day have to actively
invite the IMF to come and do it for them. The IMF doesn't swoop in and rescue - as far as I am aware, they have to wait to be invited, or, at best, permitted in.
In simple terms: the IMF do not come in without the government's permission. If that government is FF driven, go hang them then. If it's FG, go hang them too. If it's the Labour Party, go hang them. A cursory look at recent history tosses up Turkey as an IMF success and that is pretty much it. The IMF's record on medicine is that its cure causes worse illnesses than the problems that got it called in in the first place. If you think this or any country NEEDs the IMF in the form that it exists right now, you are hopelessly naive. They need it like a hole in the head. The IMF's sole asset has been that it has money. It just has been fucking awful at using it in troubled economies because it's ideologically driven rather than practicality driven.
