    Default Ireland's True Leader Says,We Can do better. Keep it up Pixies!

    She has ordered Fine Gael to tune in,or else.Though Fine Gael and Labour wont recognise the bits in bold.


    In the beginning, there are often only a few people who are willing to lay the groundwork to get things moving and make change possible. "Whoever exhibits courage inspires courage."

    For hundreds of thousands of families, this means having a safe future and earning recognition.
    And for our young people this means security, an education, a job and thus a good start in life.

    Perhaps Merkel doesn't think that a deficit of 7.5% after 5 "austerity budgets" is anything to be smug about.

    They don't. Besides, Merkel's own opportunistic political history would suggest that there is very little there other than an overpowering desire to be among the elite - Communist or ECB or Bundesbank or Brussels, I doubt she gives a fk.

    All Merkel cares about at the moment is getting re-elected. Don't expect any concession from her until the next elections are safely over.
    Brexit? Never heard of it mate...
