Viva Espana Get Your Pesetas Out Now Hombres  


BARCELONA – Spain – What would Picasso have thought about the euro? Maybe what is going to transpire soon in the country of bullfighting tapas eating Spaniards will be reminiscent of Picasso’s greatest piece Guernica.

“If you are a British expat, get your money out yesterday, if you are Spanish, get your money out sooner than yesterday, if you have a property in Spain, try and sell it, although I’m afraid you may be mierda out of luck with that idea, how can you sell something that is pretty much worthless now and will be even more worthless soon when the debt maelstrom hits?” an insider from the Spanish Finance Ministry told a Spanish business journal.

What happened in Cyprus is destined to happen in Spain soon therefore it seems the wheel of misfortune turns its weary cycle over the troublesome euro waters daily, churning away leaving frothing sewage water in its cumbersome wake.

As the Eurogroup President, Jeroen Dijsselbloem said, that “if necessary the uninsured deposit holders” will be gored by the bull’s horns and thus there is the rub, there is no chivalry left in Espana as Don Quixote has been kicked firmly in the cojones by his trusty squire’s donkey; Picasso would surely have crafted a diabolical sculpture of a deformed woman to represent the broken euro and Salvador Dali would have simply shat in a purple bucket standing on top of a lobster, as for Gaudi, his representation of the euro would be a pile of ceramic rubble.

“Spain is the big one for the euro. When Spain’s banks need to be recapitalised again, you can simply kiss your bank deposit goodbye. Especially with Spain’s unemployment currently at 26.7% things are definitely not getting better for people. There may very well be real bloodshed when the country’s economy collapses completely under its soon to be massive 110% gross debt of GDP,” an economist said from the UK.

Miss Ireland Knows


I heard it on the radio

That we’re improvised once again

I heard it on the radio

That

Miss Ireland knows

The country is short on dough

Cause she can’t buy

Any clothes

Oh

Miss Ireland Knows

The boys from sprout are here to foreclose

And move us to a land undisclosed

And those that stay will have to pay

A penal penalty dear

For Miss Ireland knows

The country is short on dough

Cause she can’t buy any clothes

Oh Miss Island knows

The Govermnent calls on the Telephone

Ireland calling sprout Zone

Ireland calling

The meltdown has come

Fill the bowl

Fill the bowl

For the money is gone

And the Tombstones of the poor

Have disappeared

To be sold in Kenmare

For miss Ireland knows

The country is short on dough

Cause she can’t buy any clothes

Oh

Miss Ireland knows

The men are drinking pints of bitter tears

And tasting the ashes of decay and arrears

Verbalizing into unhearing ears

Coursing through their veins are cries of desperation

Witnessing the closing doors of desolation

Oh how the river cascades full of trials and tribulations

Oh how the river flows

Deep down in their souls

They know fear is on the march

For they are afflicted by a fiscal tightrope

From whose scorn their is no hope

Can they escape to grow old?

Without the serfdom of being controlled

Let’s have revolution

Let’s have a new constitution

Let’s flee through the trap door

To find the allure

Of The elusive Cote D’Or

All that my friends

Is true

For

Miss Ireland knows

The country is short on dough

Cause she can’t buy

Any clothss

Oh

Miss Ireland  Knows

Ireland will have to depend on emigrants for funds


The specter of the immigrant ship lies in wait once again according to Martin Hughes.
Mr. Hughes a leading financial expert has warned that Ireland’s enfeebled economy will soon be dependent on payments sent homes by emigrants.

He is predicting that by 2020, the collapse of the economy will force emigration to levels that will see the country’s population drop to figures last seen in 2004 that in turn will pull down consumption levels and real estate prices.

“The new norm for Ireland and others across Europe will be quite literally living on reduced means and relying on a quite different economic model from their recent pasts.

“Quite different but not, we must add, altogether new. Having not depended on remittances for many decades, Ireland, like Portugal, will come to rely on these once more.”

If this grim scenario is true, it would seem like we are wasting our time repaying the bankers debts. Perhaps the better option is to repudiate the debts and suffer on our own terms. This option might be a brutal but swifter option in getting the country back on a firm financial basis.

Whatever the case it looks like a return to the sad,bad old days of the 50’s where Ireland depended on immigrant money to keep the country ticking over

Hogan highlights growth areas for Kilkenny


Areas of potential growth for Kilkenny were the subject of a recent address by Environment Minister Phil Hogan to the Kilkenny Rotary Club.

On the subject of food and tourism, the minister emphasised that while Kilkenny has a strong reputation as a food and tourism destination, “we cannot stand still” and this is the time to take that reputation a step further. Developing Kilkenny in this sector requires well planned and iconic projects in the city, centred on the river Nore and the city’s many medieval locations.

Retail regeneration is also something that could give a boost to the city, as “we now have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with the availability of the brewery site and the old mart site,” according to the minister. These sites, he said “would be ideal locations for new international brands to bring back customers that Kilkenny have lost to other regional centres.”
