I’ve put together a leaflet outlining why Ireland should vote YES on 31st May to the Stability Treaty.
STABILITY & RECOVERY
The Treaty will renew confidence in the Euro currency. This will be vital for recovery, growth and job creation.
It will maintain confidence abroad, particularly among jobcreating investors like Google, Paypal and Microsoft. Their recent job announcements were thanks to our renewed political and economic stability. We need to build on this momentum.
A SAFETY NET TO FUND OUR PUBLIC SERVICES
It will guarantee that we have access to backup funding from the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) to fund our public services. We can only access this if we vote Yes on 31 May 2012.
It will allow us to manage our finances prudently, to keep our national debt under control so that we can be sure that taxpayers’ money goes into our schools, hospitals and public services, and not making repayments on our loans. It will also make sure that future governments can’t spend taxpayers’ money recklessly.
