Greece, Ireland in same boat

IT is hard to believe that Ireland, which is in virtually the same position as Greece, is being asked to fork out cash that it hasn't got. Greece and Ireland are two of the most politically mismanaged and corrupt countries in the EU.

It will just be a question of time before Ireland is also begging for billions. The reality for both countries is that the political elite are getting paid way too much. Both are guilty of failing to reform such anomalies. One can only hope that our €16m a year Dáil and our €4.2m Seanad (without including massive expenses) can somehow turn things around.
