The gubmint is having a fine time congratulating itself.
No doubt all those who have emigrated or lost their jobs and homes will be celebrating too?
Not to mention the families of all the suicides?
A couple of lines in the report caught my eye –
“I have spoken on a number of occasions with Chancellor Merkel. She confirmed that this was a decision for Ireland to make."
The Taoiseach said the Chancellor has asked German development bank, KFW to work with Irish and German authorities to discuss ways to improve Ireland's funding mechanisms.
He said he had taken advice from many colleagues, including the German government, but had never asked for support.
It's funny how all the decisions are coming down from Germany?
And I always thought the Irish gubmint was supposed to represent the Irish people?
