It’s hard to beat Europe for sheer arrogance.
Lorenzo Bini Smaghi [whoever the fuck he is] has declared that the Irish have to bail out the banks and pay the bondholders.
This little cretin has crawled out from under his rock and is blaming us, the plain people of Ireland for causing the banking crisis in the first place. Even Fianna Fail in their most delusional times never blamed us. To them, it was always the International Crisis or whatever, but in fairness to them, they never said the we caused it.
And what logic prompts this fuckwad to blame us? well, it has to be our fault because we benefitted during the pre-crisis boom years and elected the governments that regulated the banks as the problems built. Have you ever heard such sheer contemptible arrogance in your life? This is the kind of sympathy we get for licking arses for the last forty years. It shows how Europe doesn’t give a flying fuck about the Irish. They couldn’t give a shite if we all starved in the gutters, just so long as their precious Euro stays stable, and so long as the German gamblers get their full money back.
In fairness to Lorenzo Bini Smaghi [whoever the fuck he is], he is partly in the right track.
The crisis can be logically blamed on the Irish Electorate.
He is wrong though to blame us for voting in Fianna Fail.
Where we went wrong was in voting for Europe.
