Brian Cowen’s Statement in the National Interest

February 3rd, 2009 · 1 Comment · Irish Politics, Recession

The sound is a teeny bit out but if you want to catch our sombre/edgy Taoiseach’s statement on Expenditure Control and Economic Strategy I had a go at uploading the file I was sent today. (Next step will be recording live output online, never did I think I’d be interested but in the national interest and all that!)

For a copy of the cuts/savings announced click here. Page 4 has all the important information on how much the government is taking from public sector workers pockets in the form of the Public Sector Pension Levy.

The best moment of the video (if there can be such a thing in these circumstances) is where Ruairi Quinn makes a point of order and asks where the speech is!
