Peggy Power we're not spoilt for choice unfortunately! I didn't vote FG tbh Enda Kenny always came across as very fake to me, never believed a word out of his mouth pre election...but who did we have that we could trust in? nobody....

Most of people in receipt of CB are heavily reliant on it and count down the days until the first tuesday each month so they can pay their bills. Cutting this is going to send a lot of families over the edge and further into and already increasing debt level. They are sucking us dry and most of us have nothing left to give. At what point will the people of Ireland say enough is enough?

Well said Lisa! Paying bondholders and cutting social welfare inorder to save money to pay out more to bondholders is just daft politics! This talk about CB cuts seems to me to be put out there to take minds off whats really coming in the budget! Like actual cuts to the unemployment benefit. This will push many off the knifes edge that they are currently standing on! Many will fall and shame on the govt. Public protest and strikes are long over due to tell the govt and the EU where to go!

well this is a great start Lisa, I woke up this morning to almost 5000 signatures!! that shows you how upset people are....if someone could get onto Joe Duffy or Ray D'arcy or someone like that and tell them about this petition and our intention to take it further if we have to that would really show them!

Hi annemarie ,that is great the response you are getting.Ive spread the word around.Hopefully if we need to get out and protest people will do so.No point in giving out moaning whatever.We need to take action.This government have gone too far,and will continue as long as we take it.Whatever happened to the fighting irish,people fought and died for the rights we now have.We need to start fighting again for our childrens sake if we dont what kind of examples are we setting for our children.
