Paschal Donohoe was challenged in Davos on Ireland's Corporation Tax regime by an Italian Hedge Fund Manager who called our tax system a 'joke'. He demanded to know why we were allowing European taxpayers to take a hit of 20 billion.

Is it the start of a European squeeze to end our Corporation Tax regime now that we've lost a powerful ally in Europe.

The EU is finished.
The Italian election will be the start of the end of it.
The Brits leaving was one thing but
Italy leaving is another.
They are a big player and it will be a big shock. The Brits were never at the heart of the EU.

The Italian Election is definitely one to watch. Eurosceptic, anti-migration parties like Lega Nord are doing well.

I am sure Mr Donohoe was able to handle this Champion Italian Hedge Fund Manager, who ever he was.

Or did you bow the knee and humbly apologise for Ireland's existence?

Funny how the Cruel Oppressor of yesterday is suddenly our "Powerful Ally". Now, there's a change!

Not sure if this new West Brit line will work, that our interests are suddenly congruent with that of the UK.

So were Marine Le Pen and Gert Wilders.

But hope springs eternal, doesn't it?

It must be bitter to see the general economic uplift. Fascism's chances usually deteriorate as the economy improves.

Britain was our best ally in Europe. I don't fancy our chances when we're left to the mercy of the big boys. But PBP is right. It's 'events' dear boy. Things have a momentum of their own where the EU is concerned.

We had a massive hit of billions of a bailout for them forced on top of us by The EU and a Government of traitors!
Remember The threat of a bomb going off in Dublin!

Bit gay calling a party after a cheesy British R&B combo from the '80s.

Davos: a place where quislings go to be told what to do by hedge fund managers and billionaires.
