Voter betrayal: FG/Labour to ditch pledges on economy

They will brazenly follow Fianna Fail’s four-year austerity plan as Labour protects public sector

 

The Fine Gael/Labour coalition Government is to implement in detail the outgoing Government’s four-year austerity plan as approved by the EU-IMF, the Sunday Independent can reveal.

In what will amount to the most barefaced breach of election promises ever perpetrated by an incoming Government, the coalition partners’ programme for government will cause uproar when it is published today.

While an attempt will be made to dress up the programme as a new plan by a new Government, when it is analysed it will be seen for what it is — the continuation of the economic policies of Fianna Fail and the Greens, virtually in minute detail, as laid down by the EUIMF.

If anything, Fine Gael will be seen to have capitulated more as it is handing over responsibility for reform of the public sector to Labour, whose core support is drawn from the public sector.
