With bloggers, apparently for reasons of their own - *ahem* - deciding to quit, at least those still 'in business' who abhor the EU are not backward in coming forward on the subject of the state of the euro.
"Then we start to get into interesting times as a million or so Paddies rip Dublin apart. London cannot be far behind, which will leave Euroslime Dave, with his ideas on "happiness" rather stranded. He would be better off, methinks, calculating a POI (Pissed Off Index), which probably increases every time he opens his mouth."
"The EU is at it again. Last time it fixed its gaze upon Ireland it was to frighten, cajole and bribe the population into voting to ratify the Lisbon Treaty. The motives were entirely selfish. This time the EU is trying to pressure the Irish government into taking a €77 billion bailout package – again for entirely selfish motives because the EU is desperate to appear relevant and essential to member states."
"Peter Oborne in today's Telegraph suggests the easy way out for Ireland is to default and quit the Euro. That would be entirely justified as Ireland has been ripped off by the same power structure that now desires and demands Ireland's submission."
"Seems Eire's surrender is being negotiated with the Germans - Wonder if it will be signed in a Eurostar carriage, or would that be too much?"
Even though Cameron proclaims the fact we are not in the Eurozone, thanks to a decision by the previous government the UK is still liable for 12 per cent of any 'bail-out', which could involve a sum up to about £7billion. It is an acknowledged fact that no parliament can bind any successive parliament - unless of course it is in matters EU - which kinda makes a mockery of that claim, oft trotted out by our political elite. The fact that Cameron - even if he wanted to, which I doubt - wished to withdraw from this undertaking, he can't which also nails the lie that any government we elect can govern, regardless of what they may say.
Whilst it is appreciated that the UK exports a great deal to Ireland and therefore has a vested interest in Ireland's survival, for how long does one continue to pour good money after bad? What is it that politicians do not understand about the words "No, enough - no more", unless of course it relates to something their electorate want, like a referendum on EU membership?
In conclusion, I can but agree with UKK41:
"The uncaring arrogance of..........the whole overpaid and totally unloved soviet style EU set-up, is getting beyond a joke. The people of Europe cannot afford to keep these freeloaders any longer."
UKK41 is correct, although he unfortunately omits to mention that the people of this country cannot afford to keep the present whole overpaid and totally unloved, supposedly 'democratic', UK set-up either!
