a) How long will it be before civil disobedience breaks out at the cost of this being imposed on ordinary people in Ireland, all to save banks elsewhere?
b) How long is it before Ireland defaults?
The answer is, of course (b) is not long after (a) but I see (a) as distinctly likely now. Why not? What have the Irish to lose any more? This debt cannot be repaid. It is â‚¬23,000 or thereabouts a head.
