And now our future lies with the Irish.
So Ireland, for everyones sake, don't accept the EU bailout. When the President of Europe tells you that 'countries need to work together' to secure the future of the Euro just remember what you were told before you joined the Euro. That it was the answer to wealth and prosperity for all, that you could not survive outside Europe, that you needed to be in the Euro for trading purposes, that the EU would stop World War 3 and so on.
Yet just look at where you are now.
But you could do us all a favour. Default on your bonds and persuade Greece and Portugal to do the same. Times would be tough for a while but not as tough as it would be if the Euro collapses after you accept a bailout, and any bailout will come with conditions that will forever remove your independence by putting you in hock for eternity.
So do us all a favour, stuff the EU and may the luck of the Irish be with you.
