2:10 am
painful austerity higher taxes slashed minimum wage which has since been raced back high youth unemployment and another wave of irish immigration i'm not sure that the hard ideological divide of austerity which was coming forth from europe was a good one to irish people would be to nice to see the end of the troika to see the opportunity for a street gang or economic sovereignty to be up to make our own decisions in relation to our future the government here is touting the exit from the bailout program as restoring economic and financial freedom but no one here is under any illusion that that exit would also mean an end to hardships or complete release from austerity while the idea of possibly having more control over their destiny as a nation is psychologically uplifting people really want is freedom from individual debt that so many here are still heavily burdened with. facing and long term slowdown in our structural growth we still are facing. in other words when
2:11 am

2:13 am
that through fiscal consolidation it is possible to recover. example full griese full portugal for cyprus and others the issue basically is how much time do we have when all the economies of greece italy spain portugal signpost growing again if it is going to be one or two years like in ireland it will be very good but if it going to be ten years it's going to be very low and i'm afraid that many citizens in those countries will look accept this take do you know if this is going to be a stake nations. i think this will have very serious political consequences decades after the end of apartheid in south africa there are still plenty of unresolved anger. it's definitely unsafe because if you see no white person you're wrong as a nation mourns the death of nelson mandela racial tensions are still strong in some

south africa's government officials are paying their last respects to nelson mandela before his burial on sunday but as the country mourns many fear his death may reveal serious tensions in the still divided state party's policy player reports from a suburb of johannesburg where life is far from what mandela envisioned for his country. it's definitely unsafe because if you seen a white person around. us in this core you can is taking us on a drive through the streets of his childhood this was a wealthy white neighborhood in the time of a part eight. is now a very different place i would look at me a camera gary anything. of value i wouldn't wear a watch i wouldn't read anything that could make me vulnerable to be attacked or be robbed a handful of white south africans still live here most are too old or too poor to move out of and stephen is one of the few who still call hillbrow home it's
