Assets don't disappear, Mairt- and cash is an asset, along with homes, cars, villas etc.
Nailing colours to the mast, here- I want the gold fillings pried from the teeth of the last developer left with them before I want to see a nurse, teacher or garda take another pay cut.
Another point I'd raise is the level of debt we're in at the moment. Current budget deficit is of course an issue, and borrowing to pay the everyday running costs of the country isn't great policy, but with our debt ratio at an internationally low level of 47% or so your attitude of cutting everything to the size that suits for today's financial straits regardless of the need for public services that exists is frankly a less logical stance than I've seen from you on this board up til now.
