Bank governor Patrick Honohan has warned the Government The business activities of multinational companies were affecting the figures he said creating a risk that Government policy would not be based

Re Irish Budget 2016 Pre Election Jamboree or Austerity by Stealth The troika are coming to have their say The Government is to face questions from the troika next week over the scale of spending envisaged in the budget amid concerns that next year s fiscal plans are too expansionary With the European Commission due to deliver its verdict on the budget before the end of the month it is understood the ECB in particular has concerns there is insufficient focus on structural reforms and debt reduction in the financial plan announced on October 13th Ireland s strong economic performance has boosted optimism in Government circles that the budget will be approved particularly in light of the fact that extra tax receipts may lead to a further reduction of the deficit well below the ceiling of 3 per cent of GDP http www irishtimes com news polit 2016 1 2420685 Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich by promising to protect each

the following 13 candidates in the GE I say as far as I know because it is not exactly easy to arrive at this information Their website does not detail it for example I arrived at the 13 by taking the list of AAA PBP candidates and stripping out the PBP ones Excuse me if I have made any error Carlow Kilkenny Conor MacLiam AAA SP Cork East Ciara Leonardi Roche AAA Cork North Central Mick Barry AAA SP Cork South Central Fiona Ryan AAA SP Dublin Bay North Michael O Brien AAA SP Dublin Central Diana O Dwyer AAA SP Dublin Fingal Terry Kelleher AAA SP Dublin South West Sandra Fay AAA SP Paul Murphy AAA SP Dublin West Ruth Coppinger AAA SP Galway West Tommy Holohan AAA Limerick City Cian Prendiville AAA SP Longford Westmeath 4 seats Dom Parker AAA Of the 13 candidates 10 are apparently from online references members of the Socialist Party I cannot speak with regard to the other three they may be also But we can safely say that at least three quarters of the candidates are SP Is this not

populist political disorientation that SF and their supporters have spread in the anti water charges movement and now in the wider working class I decided to approach the elections including the

many Nationalists voting for Unionist parties If NI21 had received a bigger vote then possibly but they performed very poorly Alliance vote was up but not significantly There is also the knowledge that no matter what happens on the Unionist side they will still take 2 Euro seats and SF one The turnout in large Nat constituencies has been falling in the last few elections Mid Ulster and Fermanagh Omagh had under 60 These places used to get up near 90 The SF vote is dramatically different probably in line with lower turnouts in what are now safe areas There are also probably a rump of SDLP voters who are tired of their performance but still can t bring themselves to plump for the shinners On the Unionist side there was a little more excitement with TUV and UKIP going up against the traditional big 2 and there was a big push in loyalist flegger areas to get people to register to vote Not sure any of this made a big difference Frankly the fact that the new councils saw several Nationalist areas subsumed into larger Unionist controlled councils Limavady Myle Armagh may have been the biggest factor I think we d have to wait until Westminster Stormont elections before we could comment on any pattern If Unionist pacts raise their ugly heads again that could harden Nationalist feeling and encourage greater turnout These pacts do that and also turn off soft Unionists http
