    Default Irish Bond Yields Pass 7%

    Just now;

    Irish 10 Year Bond Yields are now above 7%.

    Was that not the figure of total economic failure?

    Bonds are the Panzer Divisions of the 21st Century.

    This means the game is up, no?

    The IMF will be here in the New Year if the yield stays this high

    At last, the Germans will be here. I remember my poor old dad telling me he used to go around the hills of Meath with his rifle 'protecting' Ireland from the Germans during the 'Emergency'. They've coming in the side door now, we just have to watch them come in

    Panic over - yields now back to 6.90%...which is about where RTE erroneously reported them to be yesterday evening. (That's still a whopping 435 basis pts over Germany, but shy of the 450 over in late September).

    Nothing will motivate the lazy / apathetic / Americanised / west-British types to embrace their culture and the Irish language.
