Dumb and dumber

•So, Enda Kenny -- sounding like an eight-year-old schoolboy who's just got a silver star from teacher (Irish Independent, October 1) -- tells us that Angela Merkel and other EU leaders are "happy" that their so-called "bailout" money is being "well spent". It certainly is -- for them.
After all who would have thought that anyone, never mind an entire country, could be dumb enough to incur a €150bn debt on condition that the money is used to pay off their banks' and bondholders' private gambling debts?
I'm sure that expressions of happiness are seen every time Mr Kenny enters the room with Ms Merkel and co, along with sniggers, guffaws and looks of amazement and pity.
