Any one on for a war? It has helped the US climb out of a massive depression in the past. I'm thinking it could potentially be great craic if I manage to get a safe job in the rear (with the gear). I'm not talking about invading some third world country, but some sort or massive inter developed nations non nuclear world war. Sure some people would die but think of all the money to be made profiteering. And the potential for growth in the war film industry, not to mention the future tourist potential of giving battlefield tours, if we are luck ewnough to be the location for a major battle. We could run competitions where the winner gets to name it.

Don't forget the bookies would clean up too.

I hope its France this time, we should give the Germans a break, they've carried us for a lot of the 20th century. Not the Russians though, they might actually win.

Yes, the thought of taking Paris does appeal. I'd also be on for 'accidentially' flattening Lourdes - perhaps we could put to to a vote?

Alan Ahearne, Economist, last night said we'd need to cut all public services IN HALF in order to get that 15 billion we now need.

Could we organise for half the country to take a year off ??? For a year there would be: No schools, civil services, gardaí, non-essential civil services, government banks etc.

We could grow a new cash crop - cannabis - and demand the same deal from the US that we give them for Shannon and our other airports. We could then peddle our new product in the States and undercut the competition. We'd balance the books within months of the first flight.

get the politicians to dress up as ladies of the night and walk up and down the front of merrion square turning tricks.

lay claim to the sun and then start charging other countries for usage.

ireland idol- have brian cowell trawl through the irish people every year for someone to sell to the british and americans.

forge 14bn worth of euros using all photocopiers and printers in kildare street.

turn the irish army into dogs of war.

next time we give away extraction rights, charge something for it.

kidnap the queen and obama and ransom them to the highest bidder for 14bn.

indecent proposal, any lucky lady (or man) willing to part with 1 million euro can have a night of wild passion with brian cowen. it'll bring a new meaning to the expression "lip service"!!!! actually that makes me feel ill. have to go.... No

Can't use that idea. We'd have to know we had natural gas & exactly where we had it and we'd have to know this before we gave it away, for that idea to be of any use.

Somebody'd better tell Exxon Mobil then, cos they paid approx 2 billion dollars to Tony O' Reilly for his rights in the Dun Quin prospect. Call me naive, but I dont think Exxon, Shell Oil, Stat Oil and Marathon have put all this money into these projects for nothing. The finds have been confirmed.

The majority of these reserves are understood to be located in the Atlantic Ridge, a geological structure running parallel with the west coast of Ireland and part of the same geological formation as the North Sea reserves.

The fact that the Irish reserves are on this geological formation bodes well for their future development. The success of the Norwegian, Danish, Dutch and British fields at the other end of the structure is well documented. Closer to home, fields on the same structure such as Dunquin, which is estimated to contain 25 trillion cubic meters of gas and over 4,100 million barrels of oil, all increase the likelihood that the undeveloped reserves will be both technically and economically recoverable.

Ban all decadent pursuits such as television, and fashion. People should only be allowed to wear grey functional clothing and be required to carry with them a little grey book which contains suitable pearls of wisdom.

The unification of our country, the unity of our people and the unity of our various nationalities -- these are the basic guarantees of the sure triumph of our cause.

It is only through the unity of the Party that the unity of the whole class and the nation can be achieved, and it is only through the unity of the whole class and the whole nation that the enemy can be defeated and the national and democratic revolution accomplished.

We shall solidly unite all of the forces of our Party on democratic centralist principles of organization and discipline. We shall unite with any comrade if he abides by the Party Program, Constitution and decisions.

This (our) army has achieved remarkable unity in its own ranks and with those outside its ranks. Internally, \there is unity between officers and men, between the higher and lower ranks, and between military work, political work and rear service work; and externally, there is unity between the army and the people, there is unity between the army and governmental organizations, and between our army and the friendly armies. It is imperative to overcome anything that impairs this unity.

2007, yes well, the point would be that in the early '90's when the deals were done, it wasn't 2007 yet.

an oil boom would be nice.... oooh. Even if the Govt haven't got the taxes right, we'd still get to use the stuff. 'twould do wonders for the balance of payments if nothing else. Oil workers are paid well so that would be a good whack of income tax to the exchequer anyhoo
