Paul Mason just gave the clearest explanation yet of the issues, and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to know where we stand.
+1

Simple clear analysis without the hysteria and confusion of our own media
A sad reflection on Irelands media and its standards

Just been watching Spotlight on BBC NI...
Saw a gloating Unionist politician, and then a Sinn Fein one going on about how this was an opportunity for a united Ireland. The sound of single issues clapping...

Olh my God! Didi Dick just say that? Vote FF for stability :)

Stability for who Dick? Not the citizens just the well off.
Yeah but yer man the presenter comprehended the sheer ridiculousness of it straight away and laughed. We're so used to this sort of crap that we hardly even notice anymore. It takes a fresh view to remind us how stupid it all is.

Just been watching Spotlight on BBC NI.. The smugness coming from the other side was fvcken nauseating.. Serious schadenfreud..

Thanks Fianna Fail, it takes some republican party to make the Unionists happy...

Would you blame them? For years Ireland was held up as an example of how well the EU could transform a country for the better. We deserted our natural home currency (sterling) in favour of the euro. Now the chickens have come home to roost. Our s called "growth" was an illusion and our membership of the Euro is threatening to drag the whole single project currency down.

For a lot of people in the U.K. , Ireland is like a stray child who decided that it would do better off leaving home and turned its back on the family, making new friends. Now the child has discovered they are unable to survive away from the parental aprons strings and their so called friends have turned on them.

you're not far off the mark - Paul Mason during the newsnight report, reported that George Osborne might be offering some form of bailout directly from Britain, without going through the EU.

i guess it would certainly be offered to Lenihan at that meeting tonight.

Dick Roche- he is always so earnest and talkative but it is a whole lot of wind
" Earnest " That I hope is irony.
Dick Roche was a supreme embarrassment, So chuffed to be on BBC he delivered a chat line as if he was chatting up a bridesmaid at a wedding , maybe a bridesmaid at a funeral more apt.
Fumbling, avoiding , inept, assuming as always that a syl smile and some ballroom of romance charmless charm will deliver..............embarrassed.

It's all in your head. You really should get up off your knees. The Brits are not out to get out you and never have been. Forget whatever nonsense about Pearse you were reared with.

Again, another illustraion of how poorly served the truth is by RTE News and Current Affairs, which really is the State broadcasting... The hurried about-turn in their reporting today would be funny if it wasn't so depressing. A joke.
Indeed. I don't trust RTE on this. Thankfully the BBC, CNN and CNBC exist to verify what is actually happening. Likewise you would think from the poxy Evening Herald that Brian Óg was defending Ireland like Cúchullen. Defending public service senior executive salaries more like.
