Mark McGowans comment on the 12th of May that the state government should step in and some how save these job cuts at Leinster are just typical opposition rubbish, exactly what would Mark suggest? Perhaps Mark would be better placed putting pressure on the federal government to stop throwing money away in a lame attempt to prop up the ecomony and driving the country into massive debt. Isn't debt the root cause of the current worlds problems? Grow up Mark, get in the real world. If its losing money its doomed just like any other business, sad but true!
