    The Euro is a social experiment gone wrong and we shouldn't have to pay to fix it.

    Our economy is in tatters, benefits cut backs, MOD cut backs, local government cut backs, we are all losing our jobs, etc etc so we bail out ireland – it doesn't add up

    i was brought up to help people less fortunate than ourselves but i,m afraid when i see our care homes closing and schools up and down the country closing and disabled being penalised i,m sure my late Mother would agree charity begins at home.
    Iam sorry if this upsets some people but when you see a lady in her 90,s crying because they are throwing her out of her home because they are going to close it i think she comes first

    As predicted ECB = Bundersbank and only Germany has really benefited by imposing its preferred interest rates on the others. The Euro is flawed, and any attempt at its rescue amount to sending good money after bad.
