The gloom in the financial markets echos the pig weather around here. The experts are blaming my Irish kin today. Seems as though my beloved Celtic brothers have discovered that they are broke, just like the Greeks,
Funny thing about that. You expect the ordinary Greeks to lay around doing Greek stuff while their big banks burn and their intellectual betters are still yakking about men of gold and philosopher kings and suchlike. But we expect the Irish to be Paddy on the Spot and start shooting each other. That's always been their version of an economic stimulus.
