Economic blame game

RONAN Quinlan in his letter “They cant fix it either” (April 15) castigates Enda Kenny and Eamon Gilmore by saying they blame Brian Cowen for the recession and have no solutions as to a remedy.

He may be right in saying they have no quick fix solution. They did not cause it, and may not be able to address it at once, but at least they would have a clean start and like Caesar’s wife, would be above suspicion that it was not banker and builder friends that were being bailed out.

All experts agree that out problems are about 80 % homegrown and 20 % international, so who do we blame?
