I know it's not sports related however

Just listening to a very interesting debate on this and was wondering what the views of the Irish Forum were.

How will you vote ?

Does the vote even matter iyo ?

Listening to the debate on Today FM at the moment, I'm leaning towards no and I would usually be pro Europe. I feel it's a loaded gun either and with both choices Ireland loses out.

Never thought I would hear SF and UKIP singing from the same song sheet.

Think it's the uncertainty about the whole thing which will result in a yes vote imo.

People will go for the safety first option so to speak in the hope that it does lead to a more stable future.

My understanding is the vote is whether we want to run the country's business properly or not.

I think it's more a case of Europe making sure we run our own affairs in line with their guidelines.

Imo the main reason for pushing the yes vote is to make sure we continue to get bailed out at a more beneficial interest rate.

I agree Monte surely it's a case that we continue to get bailed out taking banking debt and making it sovereign debt?

We will probably conform as that is what we are we do what we are told doff the cap if you like to our superiors.

They should stop the vote till Greece elections. If Greece leave the euro then i reckon everything changes. The euro is a crazy idea imo. Gives no lee way for countries that get in trouble do anything about it. Before the euro countries could change interest rates or devalue the currency to alter conditions. The euro has been a shambles of an idea. However at this stage hard to see us leaving it without major problems. Voting yes or no i don't think will have much difference. Yes probably means 10-15 years of no growth and just paying back the debt. No will just mean it will come back again and eventually go through with probably a little sweetner. I think Greece are going to leave the euro and probably more will follow. Gov should have let Anglo go to the wall.

Report RoyalAcademy May 18, 2012 11:18 AM BST
Voting for the fiscal treaty is some protection against foolhardy governance but not much in my opinion as exchequer returns will always be prone to booms and busts. If you think people/investors/governments ever learn just look at the crazy valuations for Facebook just a decade after the dot.com bubble. A more closer-to-home example of stupid economics is NAMA's attempt to subsidise the the housing market with its latest 80% mortgage effort when any idiot should know that markets must find their own floor and what would be so wrong with cheap houses anyway-it would be one consolation for my teen kids?

I am probably a "yes" voter on the basis that we need the cash and the interest rates should be non-punitive and I see most of the no campaigning as utterly opportunistic. I despise SF with a visceral hatred over their usual bully-boy tactics cloaked in sharp suits these days.

Two recent stories coalesced for me recently in a strange way: when the IMF arrived in 2009 a right-of-centre friend opined that it was long overdue and now, at last, we would be forced to stop spending money stupidly on such things as early retirees (a close relation of his had retired from the defence forces on full pension in his 40's), generous pensions and allowances and a myriad of other extravagances that caused us all to throw up. What has happened since? The public service is still the gravy train (Croke Park the ultimate cop-out-it has already defeated Howlin)and public funds are still paying off the cosseted (8,000 early retirements and then the ultimate insult of rehiring individuals with three sources of income) and even the broke banks will offer far too generous redundancy terms with our money. Meanwhile your average joe (me) struggles with his business and things, literally, get worse every day.

Another friend of mine (lots of property debt,struggling but managing to stay afloat thanks to a strong farming business) surprised me when he said he was definitely voting no as, in my opinion, the farming community remain the most protected section of society. His view is that the sooner we run out of money in central government, the better, and then the reform of our hand-out, bonanza-style system will have to be reformed. Allowing for the myriad contradictions in his stance (100 acres still worth €1m and no shortage of buyers, good commodity prices, big fat subsidies with current plans to INCREASE the CAP budget, no septic tank or water charges and 20,000 tractors on the street if a wealth tax proposal gets an airing) it was a view that closely mirrored Morgan Kelly's suggestion that we first balance our books and then we can snub our noses at Europe as we wont need current account cash.

It's all very confusing but I'm still mad as hell.
Report Tolmi May 18, 2012 12:13 PM BST
Some very interesting points RA and if I were able to express myself as well as you I would have attempted to write many of those points myself.
The saddling of the next generation with paying for the inflated pensions of the early retirees is an issue that really rankles with me.
Interestingly I think a no vote may well force more austerity on us and end up with a Minister for Finance having to produce a balanced budget.While part of me thinks that this may not be a bad thing I know in reality vested interests in various government departments will look after their own as much as possible and we would end up with enormous suffering for a large percentage of people.

Report wildmanfromborneo May 18, 2012 12:49 PM BST
I am voting no but then i always do.
Excellent posts from Royal Academy and Tolmi would like to hear the views of Distant View and Wallflower.
The main fear seems to be if we vote no where will we get the loot,not a real fear because Germany can`t afford to let us go bang the non gamblers among us think of the risk and panic but surely they realise we are holding the highest card.
The lump sum pay offs the rehiring and the bloated pensions are obscene and an affront to all decent people,the haphazard nature of the redundancies and the dubious amount saved also wrong.
People seem to forget we have bailed out the German and French banks,they owe us.
This treaty is akin to a bookmaker being owed thousands by Allduckornodinner getting this debt moved to the J.P.McManus account,neat piece of sleight of hand.
The extraordinary aspect of this crisis that the gentlemen who caused it[the bankers] have been completely protected as have their investors,they gambled lost but now refuse to accept the consequences.My analogy is we go into a betting shop lump on Maybe in the 1000 Guineas and when it loses not alone do we look for our stake back we also demand to be paid out as a winner,thats what the bankers and bondholders did and managed to get the Irish government onside.The bank guarantee was the result of some coercion from the ECB and some old style Fianna Fail looking after their pals but where were all these highly paid advisers to warn them of the danger.Many years ago i read an economic rule that said if you take over a loss making venture it will transfer to the main body,if i an economic illiterate can remember that how come the economists couldn`t.

IS this the same highest card held by Greece at the moment?  They seem determined to play it.

What if German call their bluff?  And say leave or meet the austerity criteria?  Ok, techinically they cannot tell Greece to leave, only Greece can do this of their own accord, but surely if Germany plays hardball, they would effectively be forced to leave.

Can Germany afford a Greek exit?  Greece is only 3% of European GDP but the fallout of an exit would be severe. Is it cheaper to keep them bailed out even if they don't cooperate along the way?

I think if the game was soley economic then Greece does hold the highest card an it would not be forced int an exit.  Unfortunately I think the game is now politic, and without its traditional ally France to rely upon, and with elections in 2013, the German response can no longer be predicted with confidence.

What do people think about our leader refusing to enter any debate on the treaty ? Hardly inspires confidence when it comes to his dealings with the big boys in Europe.

As to the treaty what's going to happen to this ESM Fund when Spain gets the begging bowl out ? I have not heard one person answer this question yet but I would say € 500 billion would be nowhere near enough.

Even if it is changed, I reckon the Attorney General will rule it hasn't been amended enough to warrant another vote by us.

The nos are a disparate group but they generally want the E.U. to be a trade area rather than a united states of Europe.During this financial crisis we discovered that our only true friend was Britain,they are our biggest trading partner and if we could get over our traditional prejudices they are our way out of this crisis.
Vubiant and Royal Academy will love the irony of this,we should rejoin sterling and work in conjunction with Britain,our main enemy in Europe is France they will always look after themselves,they have managed to masquerade as a strong nation by using an alliance with Germany,who are the strong nation and are gunning for us.
The bank debt is not ours it has been foisted on us,we are in effect bailing out the German banks.
If we sign up to this treaty we will have to borrow 11 billion to put into the fund because as sure as night follows day Spain or Italy will go bang and that is the end of the fund,it will also be the end of the Euro.
WE have been great for Europe we gave them our fishing waters absolutely teeming with fish,we gave them our youth all they gave us was hardship,they need us for our natural resources we have the Atlantic with its wave power and gas and oil,we should vote no not because Sinn Fein or some other groups say so but because it is the right thing for Ireland.
