INTRODUCTION A Cheann Comhairle, Today I present my second Budget to this house and to the Irish people as the Minister for Finance and Public Expenditure and Reform. A decade on from the financial and economic crisis that wrought havoc with the lives and aspirations of so many of our citizens, I can report that our economy is again growing strongly and sustainably. A record number of people have jobs and many of our citizens who left in the wake of the economic crisis are returning home. Our public finances are balanced. The policies pursued by this Government and its predecessor facilitated this. This has enabled us to invest record levels of funding into our key public services, including health and education. The shared progress we have made is real. However, the risks and challenges that we now face are equally real. We are working hard to deliver sufficient housing to provide secure and affordable homes for all our people. Brexit, the outcome of which is still unclear, edges … [Read more...] about Transcript: Paschal Donohoe’s Budget 2019 speech in full, section by section

The post-mortem will be lengthy into Stoke’s drop into the Championship, with the fatal blow coming after a mistake from captain Ryan Shawcross, a player synonymous with the club’s rise over the last decade. Stoke have previously been a model of stability for any promoted club, providing us with those stirring early years back in the big time under Tony Pulis, bloodying the noses of many illustrious managers. They have been on European excursions, competed in an FA Cup Final and finished ninth three times under Mark Hughes with a squad that chairman Peter Coates once described as the best in their history. But this campaign will sadly be remembered for a … [Read more...] about Stoke City relegated from Premier League as Crystal Palace come from behind to secure their own safety
The first credit card to charge a flat fee rather than a rate of interest has launched, aimed at those struggling to build a credit score. The card, from 118 118 Money, has a tiered monthly charge depending on the credit limit, but does not have other charges such as late payment or returned payment fees. Unusually for a credit card, there are also no fees to withdraw cash. It costs £8 a month for a £250 credit limit, £14 a month for a £500 credit limit and £17 a month for a £1,200 credit limit. As customers' credit ratings improve, they are offered higher limits. Whether or not this represents a good option depends on the situation. Someone borrowing with a £250 credit limit would incur £96 in fees a year, the £500 credit limit option comes with £168 in fees a year and the £1,200 option would cost £204 in fees a year. This is less than, or equivalent to, paying the level of interest on a regular “credit … [Read more...] about The interest-free credit card that costs £168 to borrow £300 – who is it for?
