"All citizens shall extemporise pompous and reactionary views on dole scroungers, trade unions, pampered schoolchildren and other social parasites who, unlike themselves, are a “burden on the nation”. Read the rest of Fintan O'Toole's wry take on the draft NAMA legislation here. And - also in the Irish Times - Tom Geraghty of the PSEU throws some light on public sector pay. Finally, John Keane has an interesting piece in yesterday's Guardian, arguing that a failure of democracy gave rise to a failure of markets.
