Not your fault!
• No, it's not your fault. I was delighted to hear our Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, inform us, via his state of the nation speech, that the country's never-ending economic woes were not collectively our fault.
No, it was somebody else's, but he didn't have time to name-drop so I will do it; Bertie Ahern, Charlie McCreevy, Brian Cowen, and a whole army of developers.
That list is just about right in terms of those who seemed to know no bounds when it came to throwing money around like confetti at a wedding.
