Sir -- It is obvious that we, as a small resourceless nation, are being made an example of by what effectively is the Fourth Teutonic Reich based in Frankfurt ('The Irish are being trussed up in a Teutonic Straitjacket', Aengus Fanning, Sunday Independent, October 10, 2010).
Who are the bondholding goons of Anglo? And their confederates in other financial institutions? Why did the Government turn a private debt into a sovereign one?
It turned an already dreadful economic situation into a calamitous one, in which the ordinary people are ground down like Egyptian slaves building a pyramid to the EU and International Monetary Fund (IMF) pharaohs.
