    Chamber President Mike Ryan stated Austerity will not rebuild an economy will not create a single job or develop a single business and the government are foolish if they think any different The Taoiseach is using the excuse that they do not want to raise income tax but every tax is a tax on income because how else do people pay for things So who does the Taoiseach or government think they are fooling As groceries household goods school clothes services etc are all paid from people wages what other sources of revenue do people have continued Mike Ryan An increase in VAT is an increase in income tax and will mean less disposable income less consumer spending more jobs losses in the private sector more business closures in the private sector more dole payments and will lead to less tax revenue The projected revenue income figures from this proposed VAT rate increase is also questioned by the Cashel Chamber I find it hard to credit any figures being proposed by the Department of Finance to back up this 2 increase which they say will reap an extra 670m when they were responsible for the accountancy blunder which lead to the 3 6bn being double counted in the deficit calculations said Mr Ryan The governments projected savings from the reduction in the public sector numbers by 2015 of 2 5bn has also been questioned by a number of economists over the weekend which one economist has argued that will only be in the region of 500m when the figures are analysed more closely The economist James Fitzsimons has calculated that the average weekly wage of a public sector worker is 901 07 which equates to 1 76bn not 2 5bn a year for the projected 37 500 public sector jobs being cut If 10 of those wages constituted income tax then that figure reduces to 1 6bn and all these would be entitled to pensions at 50 their salaries which reduces the savings further to 800m and could be as low as 500m when pension lump sums are taken into account I would give no credence to any figures being proposed by the government but one figure that we can be certain off is that the 450 000 unemployed will rise because of their plans and will only be reduced when the emigration figures rise claimed Mike Ryan The Private sector does not have the protection of a Croke Park agreement so these austerity measures are targeted at private businesses while the real problem is the public sector pay bill which the government and any other political party seems unwilling to tackle so the 300 000 public sector workers have all political parties looking after their interests while the unprotected 1 1 million workers in the private sector will be sacrificed on the altar of austerity The Chamber also calls on the Government and Minister Richard Bruton to review the pitiful Jobs Initiative launched in May 2011 in place of

    brilliant rendition of this rather tongue in cheek musical There were some vaudevillian aspects of the play that one would think would be difficult to portray by second level students and they handled it with ease The group dances and scenes were well carried out and overall it was clearly evident that we were seeing a well disciplined group of young actors and actresses who were clearly focused on producing a quality performance The story dating from the time when England really did have a class system concerns Bill Snibson Thomas Grogan a cockney lad who suddenly turns up as the one and only heir of the late 13th Earl of Hareford Bullied by his domineering aunt The Dutchess Michelle Maher who wants to turn him into a snob the lively Bill resists all efforts to make him a gentleman finally winning his cockney sweetheart Sally Saoirse Fitzgerald and turning the upper crust upside down in the bargain The 1930 s show proved an international hit when it was given an overhaul in the 1980 s its simple romantic comedy and down to earth score making it a refreshing change from the pomp and spectacle of such musical rival as Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera The production team deserves high praise for the way in which they balanced the inherent good heartedness of the show with an eye for both the big production values and a wealth of comic detail If they had the vision they were also blessed with a cast that responded brilliantly to their roles First among them must be Thomas Grogan as Bill Snibson the cheerful cockney who finds himself heir to an earldom with all the associated trappings of wealth and social status His acting performance was confident and comically accomplished not bad for someone playing his maiden roll his singing we know all about and he was on target with a deceptively relaxed ability to blend the songs into his character s general progress through the show Thomas was perfectly matched with Saoirse Fitzgerald as Sally the sweetheart he risks losing through his elevation to the landed gentry They made a convincing couple with a vital spark in their scenes together without which the frail story line was in danger of collapsing Around them there were ample opportunities for wildly exaggerated character presentations and the principal players contributed with a high level of ability and enthusiasm which ensured constant colour and humour Michelle Ryan s formidable duchess Christopher Bowes game Sir John and Liam Quigley s humorous study of the family solicitor Parchester were well to the fore with yet another polished performance from Sinead Magner as the man eating gold digging Jackqui the couch scene as she tries to seduce Bill and Gerald Niall Treacy as a young chinless toff straight out of the pages of P G Wodehouse Sir Jasper Jake Ryan had little to say but his actions spoke louder that words Dylan Fitzelle was an indicator of the
