Overwhelming re-lief was my immediate reaction on Thur- sday morning when Central Bank governor Patrick Honohan called a halt to the ridiculous charade we'd all been forced to endure for the previous week.
Hallelujah. The IMF is here for real, with their friends from the European Commission and the European Central Bank. What a joy that the Government is no longer in charge.
It's been like living in a parallel universe listening to the doublespeak from our cabinet ministers while the dogs on the street knew the situation was not as they were making out.
