Work ethic

lAnonymous JE from Bonn wrote a very interesting letter on the virtues of the German people (Letters, September 26), specifically in contrast to us.

Apparently, we mere Irish unter-menschen don't realise the sheer scale of the hard work our German counterparts put in to keep layabouts like us flush with cash.

In that case, can I assume that Mr(s) JE hasn't seen how, according to the CSO, we Irish work the longest hours in Europe, outdoing the "only real engine in Europe" with our insatiable ethic for labour?
