Exiting the bailout


Sir, – The period of the recession and bailout in Ireland has been notable for the setting of new records in unemployment, emigration, homelessness and suicide. This will continue to be the case after the bailout, simply because the economic crisis has been and continues to be poorly managed by all of our politicians.

Now, having watched the Taoiseach’s “state of the nation” address on Sunday and then remembering the “fake” signer for the deaf at the Nelson Mandela memorial last week, I can’t help wondering; who was spoofing the most? Was it the signer in South Africa or our own Taoiseach, Enda Kenny? – Yours, etc,
