Do we want the Celtic Tiger back

While there are some people in Ireland overpaid for the work that they do I do think cutting people's wages is worry and one wonders where it will end.
Have we been living beyond our means? Well, if we are borrowing for holidays and luxury items then we have. But then weren't we encouraged by the Banks....as Michael Lynn said 'the Banks could not give me enough'. The fact that he owes the Banks €80 million is saying something.
How can one man owe so much when the man in the street is harassed for owing a few thousand euro?
That is the Ireland that was and there are many members of the Irish Government say it is only a matter of time till we get back to Celtic Tiger times, but is that what we want? I don't think so it is time to get back to real economics not virtual economics. This means that we live according to our means and that we put money aside to take care of the sick, the elderly and our children.

  1. Yes we do want the celtic tiger back but we don't want the celebrity bankers, celebrity speculators, celebrity government, celebrity cowboy developers, celebrity builders, celebrity solicitors, celebrity accountants, celebrity celebrities that it spawned and who fleeced us and our kids. Can we get a barring order?
