We are paupers at banquet table

Sir -- Now we are under the remit of our European cousins, will English become a secondary language in our schools? Where does Fianna Fail rank in The New World Order? Will the record books show how Ireland was once King of the Castle, and inside two years the paupers at the banquet table? Steven Spielberg will surely direct a new blockbuster entitled Raiders of the Lost Banks. Bertie Ahern can do a Harrison Ford cameo searching for lost treasure of the Celtic Tiger.

Better get a move on! The Germans have a head start at plundering the family ancestral treasure trove.

Perhaps it is all an illusion? Maybe the financial Holy Grail never existed in the first place, and was too good to be true. Or, we were looking in the wrong place?
