'We need stability and certainty for growth. It's about certainty. I'm almost certain about that. For stability and growth we need certainty. We certainly need certainty for stability and growth. As for growth, that needs stability and in order to maintain stability we need certainty in order to have growth. Remember, there is no growth without stability and stability comes with certainty. It's quite simple. It's all you have to remember. People can throw figures all over the place but it really is about getting stability for growth via certainty. You can quote me on that. You can take that to the bank, no pun intended. Certainty! Stability! Growth! Just say that to the nay sayers. Roar it in their faces. Certainty! Stability! Growth! I've actually invented a little song to help you remember it. The only problem is I can't remember the little song I invented. It was something to do with stability and growth and I'm pretty sure certainty was also mentioned. It was to the tune of Baa Baa Black Sheep. It roughly went something like this:
Sta Sta Bility,
Have you any growth?
Certainly with certainty,
Three banks full.
Some for the bondholders
That's already paid,
And some from the water charges
For Phil Hogan's mates.
I think that was how my little song went but don't quote me on it because I'm not certain. These are uncertain times. I'm really not certain at all.'
