Shouting at the radio

IN his column (September 15), Fergus Finlay expresses exactly my own views on the cack-handed manner in which the Government chooses to deal with the recession.

I am not surprised he is shouting at his radio when the oracles from business and banking hold forth on what must be done to save the economy.

This is brainwashing by “the haves” and anyone speaking for the “have-nots” is treated as a fool.

The Government, which should speak for all of the people, sets up this board and that commission and thereby tries to govern by remove.

As Fergus Finlay says, it is time for the people to start shouting, and not just at the radio.
