    You have a valid point, does The Slog have any credibility?

    Default, Punt nua, snap election, immediate budget balancing, Irish banks collapse, foreign banks leggit, civil unrest, food, fuel and meds shortages, huge public sector strikes,

    Dark times, but will eventually lead to recovery and growth, hopefully during the collapse we will have realised that we new a new constitution and an understanding of what government is supposed to do!

What with the stuff going on in Syria (and across the middle east) the whole place could go up. Right on Europe's doorstep. The EU is being very cavalier about this whole thing, IMO.

    It has seemed to me for some time that they want Greece out while talking out of the other side of the mouths.

    Haven't heard much from Barosso or Rhen lately?

    Maybe they know what's coming down the track.

    The Slog seems to be a bit of a header but things don't seem to be going all that well, do they. 2013 was Merkels date for burning bondholders, it's coming around soon enough, interesting times ahead.

    And the track record of the EU in the Balkans is nothing to write home about.
