    Stop wallowing in depression and listen to someone that has an idea as to the bigger picture.

    Niall O'Dowd: Bill Clinton's Battle Cry to Irish, Get Up and Get Going Is Heeded
    Quote
    "Just how well he is regarded is shown by Ireland's most successful businessman Denis O'Brien who is one of those present on this night"
    Quote
    "He told students that compared to much of the world where $2 a day was a maximum wage they were fortunate to have such bright prospects in life. You could almost see them suddenly sit up and rethink their station in life"

    And I would rethink my station in life also and I would ponder for while on the statement that $2 was a maximum wage in much of the world for one days work and wonder if those responsible should be charged with crimes against humanity,Clinton Included.

    Default Clinton remains the most popular world politician in Ireland by a country mile.

    The Irish have a bizarre opinion on politicians. That is clear from the morons, drunken or otherwise, who wander around the Irish parliament.

    They also have a bizarre opinion on business leaders suc as:

    Denis O'Brien stated bluntly that the Clinton speech would mark the launch of the Irish comeback. Declan Kelly, U.S. economic envoy to Northern Ireland, pronounced the speech the 'battle cry' that the Irish had been longing to hear.
    The Irish also love sport. Manu, Liverpool, Leeds etc.

    ...and drink. petunia

    Are you sure that wasn't Michael Lowery you were looking at Dinny?

    "the 'battle cry' that the Irish had been longing to hear"

    Funny thing that, but the only 'battle cry' I hear people longing for is 'JAIL THE CROOKED BANKERS.'
    But I suppose that Dinny and 'THE LADS' don't hear that kind of uncomfortable talk either.
    And I suppose when you analyse things properly I could be guilty of UNPATRIOTIC DUTY and I should stop throwing slurs at a fine upstanding people like Dinny and 'THE LADS.'

    When I saw this film in the early 1960s I was married with two children and earning 12 Pounds sterling for 40 hours hard work. I'm not excusing the sad state of affairs in Ireland, just giving them some perspective.
