    Spain and the Euro crisis.

    Standard and Poors' credit rating agency have cut Spain to BBB+ with a negative outlook, meaning it could be cut again...

    Wonder why the English never take to the streets about anything Even the Irish like to march and carry on a bit,
    French come out carrying on too, Maybe we are too reserved or something

    Spain have requested nearly €40 billion that was agreed in June, and Prime Minister Rajoy has not ruled out a request for a bailout by the European Central Bank (ECB)...[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

    Here's a thing, how come Spain got 40 billion to put into their crumbling banks with NO CONDITIONS and no direct involvement from the Troika and IMF in the financial running of the country, while we in Ireland are suffering drastic cuts and tax increases to pay for the bail out of our banks?? If Cameron wants to pull the UK out of Europe, I only hope that we over here stand squarely behind him and lend every support we can.

    Yeah, and when RBS got bailed out by the government, the EU made them sell off all their branches in England as a condition...they really don't like us, do they?

    Never thought I'd hear myself say it, but I'd seriously consider it. I know you're messing but there are actually solid economic reasons behind it. The UK is our biggest trading customer and we are your 4th biggest. It would make sense at least to have a common currency. And, nowadays, we have much more in common than what separates us. AND, we'd have a common foe. As a bloke said to me on holidays, Germany had 2 go's at taking over Europe by force and when that failed, they are now doing it through finance and economics. That fella, Nigel Furnish (??) was over here recently giving a talk. Feckin place was jammed. If I was living in the UK, he'd get my vote.

    Now you've got me going!!

    Yeah, we speak the same language and both drive on the wrong side of the road. Can you remember the mess Germany was in during the 30s? Nigel Farage is the guy you are thinking of, UK Independence Party.
