Traffic is diverted in Buttevant Co Cork. The tailbacks has slowed traffic. This morning proved to me that a motorway is needed between Cork and Limerick. The Dáil accepted the Labour motion that the sale of the AIB shares should be on hold until we could use the money to invest in the economy. The government ignored the will of the Dáil. The government decided to pay down the debt at a time of low interest rates. Investment in capital projects benefits the economy in the medium term. To have the money without going to the international markets makes sense. We need as a country to plan our future. Yes our debt level is high but to increase our economic activity would mean an expanded economy. This expanded economy would mean we could reduce our debt. The action of the government shows a disregard for the democratic will of the Dáil.
