As we bid farewell this week to 2011 and welcome in the New Year of 2012, no doubt many of us wonder – as we always do around this time – where on earth did the last year go?
New Year’s resolutions are a bit like cooking a perfect soufflé, lots of thought and preparation go in to the making but the result is often less than hoped for. However, on the assumption that some good might come from said resolutions, then it is perhaps worth putting pen to paper. I am listing here some which might be worth consideration and also my fantasy resolutions for 2011.
The answer to this question is like many other questions, it depends; it depends on which side of the counter you are. For consumers, I think it has been a good year, prices for most items are better than before and I don’t believe quality has suffered. For business owners, it has been tough; however most have survived and hopefully most will survive through 2011.

I’m looking forward to 2010, my strongest objective will be to ensure that Fine Gael enters government under my leadership. Ireland is facing a crucial period that will determine the society we live in for years to come depending on the decisions that are made at this important time. We are all facing greater difficulties in recent times, whether these are financial strain, employment issues, or other personal difficulties. Many of these problems are associated with the lack of leadership from this current Fianna Fáil/Green Government and their inability to protect the most vulnerable within society. I am aware of the problems that many people are facing and most importantly, we in Fine Gael have the solutions as well as the ambition to make them a reality. These plans include NewEra, an €18 billion economic stimulus package that would create 105,000 new jobs in the green energy sector. Other plans aim to protect small and medium enterprises in order to save jobs, promote fairness in healthcare through our FairCare policy, excellence in education through our Third Way document, and a better alternative to NAMA.
