He has a point insofar as the following.

David Mc Williams has always (correctly) said that Ireland was 'addicted' to money and to 'property porn' as he called it.

We rightly in this country have little time for those who push drugs onto those who are 'addicted' to them, consequently, the Irish were an easy push, being relatively poor before we picked up the 'habit' of bingeing on credit.

But we do have to be taught a lesson in personal responsibility, hence moral hazard and some pain.

It is only through this, that we can recover a sense of what the word "value" actually means.

If we show any sense of learning our lesson, then our prospects will be good. Otherwise anarchical politics will reign.

My jury is still out on the future of the Irish people, in the short term at least.

I do hope, however!

Are you going to show me where Angela Merkel did not call for a revisiting of the Lisbon treaty?
yes she did say that there could be a treaty change to develop a new mechanisms to tackle future economic crises.

this is a far cry from linking up the banking/property crisis/IMF/EU bailout/long standing hatred of our corporate tax by most states/ganley/lisbon treaty into some nice neat package.

considering they have the strongest economy in europe they have an acute interest in other member controlling their budgets/economies.

Of course they do. That is the problem.

You might have noticed, you are not German, you are Irish.

What is good for them is not good for you.

We need to look after ourselves. Taking on German Bank debt is not in the national interest.

You might think that surrendering sovereignty to a foreign Govt is a sensible thing to do. I think it is treacherous and an abdication of responsibility.

Don't waste your breath. PAD10H doesn't believe in the concept of states
but rather in some sort of fuzzy idealised multicultural world where the "workers" (whoever they are) unite and everyone else doesn't figure.:roll:

By the way...where is the Ganser at present?
He's resting in his hyperbaric chamber 'neath his evil headquarters located in a hollowed out volcano somewhere in the west of Ireland.

If Sky want to waste their airtime on a failed politician with no credibility and no mandate then let them.

like or hate him i do dislike him personally. He was correct when he said europe was eventually going to screw us. I know ff did most of the screwing but there is a point merkel speeded things up for us.

And you with your' ever close union' to a failed experiment ,what does that say about you ?
Declan has know how ,courage, intelligence, a love of Ireland [he could
chose to live in any smart place in the world,but he choses to live and fight for the people of this island].
What about you ? What choices do you have,what talent do you have to offer ?
There are too many jealous, looser type mentality,useless people in Ireland
and in many ways that is why she is in such a mess.

ONLY people like Ganley who are strong ,know the world can give any hope.
Atrue Democracy has Strong people ,of ALL opinions who have One thing in common.They Love their country,and they want to create a better and a realisic future for generations to come.
LEFT, RIGHT MIDDLE OF the ROAD all are neede ,but they must have Courage ,be Honest,have Knowledge,and Love Ireland.
The best for the moment wins,but no side should be in powerfor too long.

Another character who would be good in the fray is Gerry Adams,who has experience,courage and Character. Ireland needs them both in
government ,not just one ,but both.
