Now that the fiscal treaty referendum is completed it is time to refocus on our economic and social recovery. The Government said that the treaty was only part of what is needed; a national and EU plan to achieve investment and job growth is still missing.
Plan B offers people credible, sustainable ways of generating jobs and maintaining front line services. The plan protects the most vulnerable in society from further hardship and illustrates the urgent need to renegotiate the banking debt. Plan B works within the framework of Ireland’s present dependence on the Troika bailout programme and recognises the need for Ireland to move toward a more sustainable balance of government income and expenditure.
Claiming our Future launched the Plan B campaign on June 25. The event was held in Buswells Hotel.
