Teachtaireacht ó Bhrian Cowen…..

Fuaireas teachtaireacht r-phoist ó Bhrian Cowen, An Taoiseach, ar maidin. Tá saghas taithí agam ar theachtaireachtaí a fháil ó dhaoine cumhachtacha nó is minic, freisin, go bhfaighim teachtaireacht ón Uachtarán Barack Obama.

Ní h-é go bhfuil siad ag iarraidh mo bhlag a léamh – cé go bhfuair mé teachtaireacht inniu ó dhuine anaithnid ag fiafraí díom an raibh aon eolas agam ar bhog earra a aistreodh Gaeilge go Béarla le brú cnaipe. {Tá cnaipe ar shuíomh Fhianna Fáil a athraíonn an fhocal ‘Gaeilge’ go ‘English’ – ach ní oibríonn sin d’aon chuid eile den suíomh.]

Ar aon nós, fuaireas teachtaireacht ó Bhrian Cowen ar maidin agus bhí sé ag fiafraí díom an raibh aon cheisteanna agam do.

An chéad cheist atá agam: Cén fath go bhfuil an teachtaireacht seo go léir i mBéarla? Nach tusa an Taoiseach a bhaineann úsáíd as an nGaeilge go rialta id oráidí?

Nílim ag lorg teachtaireacht iomlán i mBéarla – díreach cúpla abairt nó alt chun a chur in iúl dom nach bhfuil tú tar éis í a ligint i ndearúd. Gan amhras thuigfinn go bhfuil tú faoi bhrú – ach dar liomsa is cuid den réiteach í an nGaeilge, seachas cuid den bhfadhb.

Dear friend,

Ireland’s economy has been damaged by the global economic downturn. I have been honest with the country and acknowledged that the times ahead will be tough. While we work night and day to get Ireland through these difficulties, I want to engage with you directly, so that you know what we’re doing.

That’s why, in launching a new Fianna Fail website, I want to offer you an opportunity to ask me directly about the challenges we face and the route that I’m proposing to get Ireland back onto the path of sustained economic growth.

Ask your questions by clicking here and I’ll post a video on March 12th answering as many as I can:

Ireland is facing economic conditions unlike any we’ve seen before. Our banks required government support. Unemployment across the country is rising and many businesses are being hit hard. The public finances have suffered and we’ve been forced to make really tough choices.

We’ll meet these challenges head on. We’ll fix our banking system. We’ll make sure that a new regulatory system is put in place that the people can have confidence in.

We’ll help people to retrain if they become unemployed. We’ll extend further help to businesses for whom credit is no longer available and whose future is under threat.

We’re taking tough decisions now, so that Ireland can emerge from this recession quickly and fairly. We’re building Ireland for tomorrow – and a better future for us all.

If you ask me – directly and simply – about our plans, I will respond in kind. Submit your questions to:

I’ll admit we haven’t got everything right, and if you want to tell me where you think we can improve our proposals or offer alternatives, I’ll listen. Only by listening to each other, learning the lessons of recent times and working together – summoning a national effort – will we move back towards the levels of economic growth which have made Ireland the envy of many over the past 20 years.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Brian Cowen

Taoiseach

Níl a fhios agam an chuideoidh a leitheid seo d’admháil: I’ll admit we haven’t got everything right, and if you want to tell me where you think we can improve our proposals or offer alternatives, I’ll listen. le Fianna Fáíl teacht aniar sna pobal bhreitheanna. De reir an suirbhé is déanaí, níl ach duine as gach deichniúr a cheapann go bhfuil an Rialtas ag déanamh dea oibre agus iad ag iarraidh sinn a thabhairt slán ón bpriacal seo.

De reir an suirbhé céanna, tá tacaíocht de 42% ag malairt rialtais den éite clé ina mbeadh An Lucht Oibre(22%), Sinn Féin (7%) agus na Glasaigh(5%), maraon leis na neamh-spleaigh(10%). 52% de thacaíocht atá ag An Lucht Oibre agus Fine Gael (30%) le cheile, 55% atá ag Rialtas Náisiúnta d’Fhianna Fáil (25%) agus Fine Gael.

42% – sin isteach is amach leis an tacaíocht a bhí ag Fianna Fáil agus iad ag dul i mbun Rialtais an uair dheireannach – ach gan dabht bhí cúpla duine sa bhreis uatha agus bheadh ar a leitheid seo de chomhghuaillíocht iad san a fháíl, bunaithe ar anailís ar fhigiúirí an lae inniu, ó Fhianna Fáil nó ó Fhine Gael. Cá bhfios, áfach, cad a tharlóidh idir seo agus trath toghcháin – ach b’fheidir go mbeidh sé níos túisce ná mar atáimíd – agus Brian Cowen – ag ceapadh.
