Gordon was calling for a New Financial World Order earlier on. Some Act is going to be passed in the UK which the BBC says cloaks the banking industry in just more secrecy now and that could be detrimental for consumers ...

Hard stuff to regulate as money can slide between small holes and cracks very easily.

Volunteer? Yes .. yes they'll have to volunteer for at least 30% - if they are lucky. Google "Christian Pauls" - he said it all in September 2007....

Noel Dempsey telling James O'Reilly that if they'd followed FGs advice they'd have spent 34bn more than they did.

In udder news - Bertie's udder brudder is looking to contest the bye-election for FF in Dublin Central, the seat which was previously held for 27 years by the late Tony Gregory.

Maurice Ahern will seek to join his brother as a FF representative for the constiturency and will attempt to bring FF's representation to 3 TDs out of 5 if he is successful in joining Bertie and Cyprian Brady TD.

If he wins, emigrate. All hope is gone. Life is too short to have to put up with this sort of imbecility.

Emigration ... hmm ..

This kind of thing will go on and on in Ireland forever as it has gone on in the past. We got ourselves into it though - lack of foresight coupled with enormous gluttony and greed. We stuffed ourselves for years and now we're getting stuffed. Will that teach us though ? It seems that a lot are emigrating again now and will continue to do so. Keys left in letterboxes, loans left in banks and on credit cards ...

There would have to be physical hunger before people would make a significant change in their mindset.

Should the constituency that returned Tony Gregory election after election end up being represented by Bertie Ahern, Maurice Ahern and Cyprian Brady, it will be a measure of the extent to which politics has become totally degraded and discredited in Ireland. The Germans call such a thing an "Armutszeugnis", which, while having no direct translation into English, indicates "a confirmation of poverty". The poverty in question is usually not financial but moral or ethical.

If only we could all be so morally & ethically superior, we'd be like the Swiss & the Germans, (OK we'd have to develop a serious "look the other way" attitude to bank lodgements, erase "hot money" from our collective memory and only teach modern European history from 1945 or so) a small price you might say.

Still and all though, when you think about it, the prospect would send a shiver down your spine, wouldn't it.

We may not have long to wait now. Half a million on the live register by Christmas and nowhere to emigrate to. I find it hard to believe the people of Dublin North Central would discredit the memory of Tony Gregory by electing that buffoon's brother, but who knows, stranger things have happened.

Nowhere is perfect, but very few places have the likes of Coughlan, O-Dea, Cullen, Dempsey, Hanafin and Harney (I throw her in with your lot as it seems as if she never left and is completely devoid of any awareness of what constitutes a conflict of interest) as actual members of a government cabinet. Having lived in all three places (Ireland, Switzerland and Germany) I can say that in my opinion, living under the diktat of the afore-mentioned gobshites is by some distance the worst option of all.

LOL. I don't think we have anything to learn about dodgy bank lodgements or hot money from anyone, but I'll give you your dues, Berite never rounded up a despised minority and gassed them en masse. He wasn't all bad so. Eejit. FFS.

Not for the first time, you miss the point. This has nothing to do with Bertie Ahern. The question raised was do the Germans (on the basis and as proposed, that they have a saying for this, very strong evidence there.) or indeed the Swiss, have anything to teach the Irish about morality or ethics.

But listen, don't worry about it, we all make eejits of ourselves from time to time, you keep on trucking and you'll get something right eventually.

Slim,

You have your opinion, I have mine, you are living where you are living and I'm living here. Winners all round.

Gogarty has resigned his "Education Spokesperson" role, for what that is worth.

Pretty feeble stuff, IMHO. He may as have resigned as treasurer of the Lucan Branch of the Green Party for all the difference it would have made. He might feel he can't personally stand over the education cuts but it appears he will remain an enthusiastic supporter of his party and the government in implementing the same cuts. Will he vote against the budget?
