Ah go on, go on, go on, go on.....

If we needed any reminder of why the Coalition Government is having to address our finances, we just have to look at Ireland at the moment, one of our key trading neighbours and, despite our differences over the years, a country with which we are intimately interwined both culturally and financially.

Whichever way you choose to believe it, either the country or their banks are requiring another major bailout.

The Irish Government are having none of it, protesting that nothing is wrong. Everything is very surreal, as the country that once could'nt absorb enough European development money now tries to turn away £100 billion.

It is a bit like Mrs Doyle offering a cup of tea to a reluctant guest."Ah, go on now, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on........."

They are turning the tea down at the moment, but by all accounts they will be saying, "Oh, all right then!"

Hopefully not too late to make a difference...for us as well.
