    Default Mc Williams – Lenihan’s Scorched Earth Economics

    Saw corrupt little bertie last night, I'm surprised he didn't call for McWilliam's suicide again since he was feeling "devious".


    David McWilliams: High bond rates will leave us an economic wasteland - David McWilliams, Columnists - Independent.ie

    The bond market is betting that the Irish authorities, in cahoots with their friends in the ECB, are happy to preside over a Carthaginian peace. Any economic destruction will be deemed necessary so long as Ireland remains a pliant little European borrower.

    THE Pyrrhic victory is one where the costs to the victor are enormous. When you pay 4pc more for money than your neighbour, borrowing is hardly a victory.

    Now that the taxpayers are no longer paying for Bertie's makeup/cover-up, he should restrict his inane and idiotic interviews to radio. The big red nose on him would light up a city - God forbid anyone would ever stick a pin in his nose, he'd bleed to death.

    Another good article from the Floppy Haired One. He has described our predicament down to a tee.

    'Carthaginian peace', there's a phrase I have not heard in years. Takes me back to my schooldays in the 90s.

    We need a Hannibal.

    Amazing how the girlfriends make-up business wasn't able to survive the downturn, or the lack of bertie's €100k+ a year make-up expenses bill.

    Ireland has a few cards that it could play that would cause considerable problems and consternation elsewhere. Unfortunately it is acting like a compliant vassal state.

    Its weakness is its size and the limited adverse impact it can cause. The old adage applies, if you owe me 1 Euro it is your problem, but if you owe me 100 billion the problem is mine.

    Fianna Fail breaks all the old adages

    "if they owe those 1 Euro it is their problem, but if they owe those 100 billion then lets screw over the tax payer"

    "late to bed, early to rise makes a man an effective leader with nasal congestion"

    "if somethings worth doing, its worth being done by my friend, infact even if its not worth doing i want a state contract for my friend"

    and presumably at the behest of the greens in the next budget we will see

    "red sky at night tax, red sky in the morning levy"

    The Greens seek to tax the very air we breath or at least components of it. Co2 trading has to be one of the biggest scams ever invented.
