Taoiseach’s economic policies are built on fear

I write concerning Taoiseach Edna Kenny’s recent remarks in Davos.

 Mr Kenny claimed that in order to continue the conditions for growth in the Irish economy, political stability is needed.

He believes it would be easy to lose sight of the hardwon gains and for people to drift toward populism.

Thanks for that Edna.

Now I would like to state some of my beliefs.

These remarks are a continuation of the “Don’t Risk it” strategy being employed by government party election teams throughout the state whereby the government parties try to frighten people.This position has no credibility
