Balancing the books

William A Thomas - Letter to the Irish Times

Madam, – Might I suggest this Government begins to look at our €300 trillion worth of natural resources – from gold and diamonds to oil and gas – which are found in abundance in Ireland, and find out how they might help us, rather than strangle the poor and incapable? This Government seems to want the poor to pay for the excesses of the rich, while giving away our natural resources for nothing. I believe everything can be “re-negotiated” under the current conditions. – Yours, etc,
