IT'S a choice between our default or Europe's default, said Paul Sommerville, the Independent candidate for Dublin South East. I couldn't have put it better myself.

Not that I'm yet ready to put a 100pc bet on any default. Not even the markets are doing that -- although their odds are pretty high. It's the choice that was aptly put.

As you would expect, Mr Sommerville would prefer to have a home-grown default.
