Don't mind him. Wolfie is just doing his duty transcribing from the SF official line decided by the inner circle. They had a continuing affair with the Greek left for some years and were publicly holding hands for several years.

If you think the situation in Greece had any effect on Brexit you know hee haw about Brexit. I did not here it mentioned once during the campaign.
Do you not understand that when people see how Germany are the ones calling the shots and destroying any country that gets in their way, including Greece, how that would affect peoples views on the EU?
Then they see Paddy the serf getting slapped around the place by the Germans and the ECB, and then Paddy's kept taoiseach on a UK tour telling people to vote to stay in the EU.
Is it any wonder Britain voted to get out of the madhouse?

Noonan was one of the most outspoken critics of Greece and was to the fore in the sick way that country was treated.


N.B. Hard and all as they hit Greece, their doctor/patient ratio and their beds per head of population ratio is still far superior than the mess Noonan and his blueshirt scum can deliver here.
The dear beloved leader of the shin slime touters dropped there great hard left friend Tsipras like a hot snot after he was elected and had to behave like a grown up.
Jarry's afraid to even order a Greek salad now in case the pap photograph him with it.

It is ignorance like this that drove the Brexit debate. In point of fact it was German money that kept Greece afloat after they ran their own country into the ground. No one was willing to lend the cesspit that Greece a red cent and they were facing an economic shut down. The IMF and Germany with the EU bailed them out.

Germany didn't destroy Greece. Greece destroyed Greece. Britain has less than nothing to fear from Germany.

What line is that?
Who's the inner circle?

Not sure if you noticed but SF campaigned to stay in the EU but are pushing for massive reform of the EU institutions.

So is SF advocating we leave the EU or are ye still trying to ride the EU horse while flogging it to death?

I think I engaged with you a couple of weeks ago and found, like now, that you were incapable of following a line of conversation.
So, if you don't mind.....

Back to the border issue. Britain wants secure borders, there isn't a snowballs chance that the UK Tory party is going to pay to actually police a whooping 500km land border with Ireland. Solution is they'll located the customs border between NI and Scotland. NI accounts for less than 2% of the UKs GDP so it'll be no great loss and piss easy to enforce. Unionists will kick up a fuss but they no longer have any bite post GFA.

What price did Greece pay for their loans from the IMF?
The same IMF who stated that Greece required writedowns of it's debt.

You are mistaken on two counts. Incapable of following SF's line on allegedly in favour of Irish sovereignty while supporting mass migration at the expense of indigenous workers.

I'm in London a lot. and it's a rare occasion to be served by a Londoner. I don't blame the British for wanting some control over immigration. place is slowly turning in to a bazaar

Does it even matter, Greeks repeatedly voted for free lunches, they were told there is no such thing many times.
Yet their debt per head of capita is less than half of ours.

Virtually nothing that you wrote has any factual basis. Germany the bogeyman, poor little Greece It is a nationalist fantasy. You been fed bullsht and swallowed it all.

And yes, it is nonsense nationalist fantasies that drove Britain out of the EU.
