Humpty Dumpty nation still in bits
Sir -- We've had visits from two of the most notable people in the world, Queen Elizabeth and President Obama. We were honoured and intrigued by their presence. Our media commentators went into overdrive as they poured over the entrails to see what all of this could mean for Ireland Inc.
Now that they are gone, we have to face the brutal truth that all the Queen's horses and all the President's men can never put Ireland's economy together again. We are united in debt and can empathise with the fate of old Humpty Dumpty.
