'Socialist' Eamon Gilmore against taxing banks

Elaine Byrne has an excellent piece in last Sunday’s Independent outlining how the financial sector, with full support from the Government, are refusing to pay a measly 0.01 Financial Transaction Tax (FTT).

The tax, which would reduce Ireland’s bailout by €500 million annually, would, according to the ‘socialist’, Eamon Gilmore, put Ireland at a competitive disadvantage because the UK would not implement it.
