THREE cheers for the IMF. Its arrival here a year ago is just as much good news now as it was then when it landed along with the teams from the European Commission and the European Central Bank.
Sure, we ceded our sovereignty. It was embarrassing and undignified.
But mainly it was a huge relief, and remains so. Looking back over the past few weeks on the unedifying pre-budgetary behaviour of the Government it's just as well the troika are here to keep us on the straight and narrow.
