The Irish, Are We Mad Or What?

The IT is just bending the knee to Brussels again by piling all the blame onto our "national" authorities, thereby deflecting attention from the huge inflows of cheap credit courtesy of the lax monetary-policy of the ECB. I see a referendum in the air (or maybe not).

But he shouldn't have said it there, say it at home and let people accept it domestically. He could have been more diplomatic, even though he was right and he went mad with election promises he didn't keep!

No, but it takes the light off the gamblers and speculators/bankers. Who are being bailed out by the people and are partly to blame also!

I think that has been well documented already. By many people. Including here. Don't you?

I would have said, Even though there were people that went over the top with credit and borrowing, the financial institutions were also irresponsible went it came to giving out loans and it created a bonus culture in banks. etc. etc.! Do you think that would have been more diplomatic?

You see there is a big difference between us normal Joe Soaps and the property developers. I borrowed too much but I am paying it back, those fuckers aren't and many still have the same lifestyle they had before they went broke.

Nobody is saying they are blameless in this or should get away with it.

Just that we are all to blame and that collectively as a nation we fucked up.

It would make you feel, as if he doesn't want to upset a certain elite but blame all the people. Dennis O'Brien then over cheerleading him and they sitting on a tribunal report on his dealings with fg in the past! It makes me sick!

No, I don't think we are collectively to blame for Anglo's mistakes? How could we be?

I have a thought, a conspiracy maybe? FG were up to their necks in debt till recently, its only till after the bust started that they were able to start clearing them. I wonder did the people that were supporting ff, saw their ship sinking and jumped over to fg and made donations knowing they be in power next. So as to get protection in budgets and looked upon favourbly. It may be a far fetched theory, but It wouldn't surprise me!

And Anglo arent to blame for the thousands up to their neck in personal debt who borrowed for cars they didn't need, holidays abroad or got 100% mortgages on a house in the bog because they "had to get on the ladder".

We collectively fucked up. We voted in governments that encouraged the bubble, we didn't save, we borrowed loads, and we all called David McWilliams a ginger tosser when he said 10 years ago that this would happen.

Of course we could just blame the bonus culture in the banks if it helps us sleep at night

Something like a 180 people own 63bn to the banks in this country, that's a huge portion of the banking debt that we are paying back.

And I borrowed a huge amount of money during the boom but I am paying every cent back, to the best of my knowledge we won't see Sean Quinns money or Liam Carrolls?
