Politicians will waffle until hole gets deeper

PROFESSOR Morgan Kelly is correct, we should reject the crippling bailout and stop digging an ever-deeper financial hole for ourselves. Besides, we have no moral right to bequeath such a burden to posterity.

Even leaving the euro for a devalued punt may cause suffering in the short term, but it could be our only salvation by doubling our agro-food exports and tourism. Unemployment and emigration would halve, it might even restore our self-respect in time for 2016. Unfortunately our politicians will waffle on as usual until it all collapses in an even deeper hole.
