Why, what have you got against Dublin?
Exactly Dublin was founded by the Vikings and in fact raided your so-called Celtic brothers in Wales and Cornwall.
Our noble Brythonic cousins strived with great valour to reclaim the scared soil of the Blessed Isle from the filthy Gothic incursion, but, alas, the great stench of the Norseman drove them away to less arse-stinking pastures.
aaaagh, I need some air
The same thing everyone has against that smug lot which inhabit their country's capital. It's a culchie-townie thing, flavoured by a lot of anti-Munster predjudice in the IRFU.
Culchies mindlessly voting for Fianna Fail because their local TD buys a round for them is a big part of why we are in this mess. The surest way to win a seat in the sticks is to go to hurling matches, be seen as one of the lads
Ireland might be a very welcome bailout for the Eurozone. Look at the graph. It might be time for some action, before the Euro climbs so high that nobody in the world can afford European goods anymore...
The dent you see was (partially) caused by the Greece bailout. Helped selling a lot of Mercedes and BMW in the US...
I think you mean German.
And before that Germany was selling them to Ireland and Greece, for money these had borrowed from Germany, likely as not.
The EU simply cannot get by on an economy based on the concept of specifically Germany alone making and selling stuff to everyone. The only ones who are going to survive then will be the other members able to sell stuff to Germany in turn. (Sweden, Denmark, a few others.)
Unless of course the idea is for the Greeks, Irish etc. to up and move to Germany.
Mainly, but not exclusively.
Europe in general is quite dependent on exports. And furthermore, if German (West-European) goods are not exported anymore, a lot of East-European countries, where goods are manufactured for the West-European companies will go down the drain as well.
$164,000,000,000 / 2,154,000 = $76,137.42 for every working man and woman in Ireland.
Labour Force = 2.154 million
That's what I'm thinking.
How is it social spending driving the problem if there was no problem until deregulation?
If the trend continues from country to country, I'd more likely look for some Illumuninati mobsters then blame an unbalanced budget.
Thanks Godwynn, there we go. And Britain also is in dire need to get the GBP down. No wonder they want to participate...
..it seem that much of the money our government
lent to banks was lent on to the Iriish banks....
Sooo which part of Ireland do I own now??
Little did you all know, I was actually drawing maps of what Germany would own in a little over two years.
You almost feel the following quote is relevant when it comes to Germany:
You own 1/5 of a quarter built house in a ghost estate 100 kms from Dublin.
