Speaking of the SBP editorial, one can?t accuse it of not knowing its base: Slowly, surely, there has been a growing clamour among unions and employee representative groups for employers to undo the purges of the downturn and restore pay and conditions.

The SBP editorial is in fine form this last week as it complains that ?water protestors are out of touch?.

I was almost entertained by Pat Rabbitte?s sterling defence of Ireland as having a ?rate of inequality below the average in the European Union?. Almost because it?s so self-serving on his part? It comes as part of a counter-critique to Eoin Ó Broin who wrote in the SBP the previous week about the topic. Rabbitte […]A
