I am glad to have another opportunity to reply to some measures included in the budget and thank everyone for his or her co-operation. Last night someone said the budget was like a light shower of snow over a farm, that there was no great amount in anyone's pocket or any one field. This is the best description I can use because there was a little for everyone, for which we must be thankful, in fairness. I have been in the House for many years and this is the first budget I can remember in which we are able to give something. It is very little, but we have to cut our cake according to measure. We went wild in past years and are suffering as a result. The suffering endured in the past nine years of austerity has been frightening. The impact it has had on families and human beings has been appalling.
We cannot ever write out of history the number of people who are abroad and the number who are sick. We also have those who are under pressure and cannot pay their mortgage and are being terrorised by the banks. They were not mentioned in the Budget Statement. We have the terror industry around the banks and the repossession agents. We have the peace process in the North to deal with the impact of the Troubles and there are peace processes all over the world. We need someone to intervene to call off the hound dogs. Deputy Clare Daly spoke about blood sports. There is a blood sport and there is not a word about it. People are being terrorised and beaten up in their homes and on bóithríns and roads and being evicted. It is going on, but we have had a budget that does not even mention home repossessions or those in mortgage distress to any great extent.
