So the Irish have voted for ...

... someone else to pay.

This will be interesting !

PS It is a the Achilles heal of democracy that the fantasy that you can vote for "someone else" to pay and that so many parties cater for that delusion.

I don't think so.
The Irish Times is reporting that none of the main Irish political parties believe the EU-IMF deal can be untied.
So whilst their overlords in Brussels have allowed the Irish electorate to give Fianna Fáil a kicking, they know they are still going to get their pound (or should that be kilo?) of flesh, regardless of who makes up the next government of Eire.
I think the EU-IMF would have been more worried if more independents had been elected. As it is the poor paddies are going to be stuffed by their political elite - once again!
