Stuck in the Greek without a paddle

•Yer honour, Mr Barroso, sure it's good of you to even notice me at all. I'm so grateful to yer honour for not kicking me as hard as ye has the right to any more.

Ah yer too good altogether and after what them rascals the Greeks is after doing to you; asking for a haircut if ye don't mind and yerself so good and so kind ye gave it to them.

Oh, I'd never do that. No, me and the people at home is so used to subservience, we're glad to tip the cap and bow to yourself and so grateful to you for smiling and saying how good we are to take our medicine without a whimper.
