"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

It looks as though Cameron  is beginning to realise how unpopular the measures to bail out banks and the eurozone via Ireland are.  Instead of Osborne's 'friend in need' we're now told that all the Irish will be coming over here with their dual nationality to take British jobs.
The Prime Minister raised the prospect of thousands of Irish job seekers flooding over the border, putting strain on unemployment blackspots in the UK. 'We have to ask the question, what would the consequence be for Britain... if the Irish economy failed.  An enormous migration takes place between Britain and Ireland. If the Irish economy collapsed, that would have a huge impact on Irish people coming to the UK for work'.
What a lowdown and base sentiment to express in an attempt to persuade Brits that the bailout is 'the right thing to do'. Maybe they will come over - and why not since the world and his mother is already here living on benefits, running trafficking rings and building luxurious homes in Romania. Personally, I'd rather have the Irish. Cameron knows what's going on with the banks, the EU and the IMF. Keep on running, Cameron. We're just getting started.

There's to be a huge rally in Dublin this Saturday. The Irish can teach the French a thing or two about demonstrations.


  1. I wish they'd teach us a thing or two. But I guess to get a decent rally here we'd have to shut the pubs and stop having dross on the telly.

    Fat chance, so I expect we will just roll over and take it like a man! At least that's what Dave and his mates are counting on.

    Keep on running Dave. Don't stop till you get to Iraq. Apparently now, it's the ideal place to live. So says the British government.

  2. Well, we're half-way there, Tris - most of the pubs have already shut down, there's only the box in the corner - oh, and it's winter of course, it would never do to demonstrate in winter, much too chilly :-)

    I don't know, but there is something different in the air now. I'd be very surprised & stop blogging if we saw the next six months pass without a massive demonstration in London. I don't think people will take it any more, stiff upper lip or not.

    I missed the news about Iraq being a favoured destination - do you have a link to hand? I still favour the Outer Hebrides myself.

  3. GV: I don't actually have a link, but I heard it this morning. Aparently, according to the government, we don't have to accept refugees from Iraq now as the place is perfectly safe and reasonable to live in... not any trouble (you know, apart from the odd bomb or two most days). No bother with militia, and of course women can wear bikinis in their front gardens...

    Or was that somewhere else.

    They lie for a living, I tell you.

    If it's that bloody nice, why isn't the posh boy off there for Christmas, instead of Thailand. And what happened to all this "holiday in England" crap that he was urging upon us. Or was that only for plebs?

  4. It must be obvious now to anyone who ever had the faintest hope that Cameron would be different and meant what he said that they 'lie for a living'. It's been nothing but u-turns and 'clarifications' since May. I just find the whole thing very sad.

    As for Iraqi refugees, if it was my country I'd fight for it rather than leave - and I expect to be tested on that before my life's done.

  5. I already can't stand the sight of Cameron, GV.

  6. I'm with you on that one, Spidey. Many Conservatives are unhappy about the direction the party's taking under the smokescreen of this coalition.
