Where’s the queue of foreign investors?

NO doubt the IMF and the European Central Bank will find something to be pleased about in the budget.

However, despite Brian Lenihan’s ludicrous statement that the Irish economy is “vibrant”, there is no evidence of a queue of foreign investors beating a path to get (back) in here.

With a budget so devoid of job creation policies, where on earth is a further €3 billion of so-called essential savings to come from in next year’s budget? I trust Health Minister Mary Harney has a good stock of anti-coagulant because you cannot bleed a year-old corpse.
