I remember talking to a guy in Nice with one of those big private boat / ship things with added Girls & stuff just outside the Pub back in September 2008 when this shit was going down – all you can do is shrug your shoulders We are all Credit Grot Farmers now , large & small – with little or no redundancy from these credit droughts – although some of us have larger food provisions. I don’t think there is much real capital remaining – the top soil is all gone. Calls for Altruism is perhaps too little too late. Rambo Amadeus and Euro-Neuro IMHO looks like Rambo and Montenegro may just be able to achieve the impossible by pulling back the Eurovision from obscurity. I almost gave this one a skip when I read it was a Eurovision entry. Glad I didnt. Singerś accent is a bit hard to understand but if you can follow the accent this song (and video) is fantastic. 🙂 If people can give votes to an Irish turkey then this donkey must have a chance. Any chance of a re-write of the Jedward entry focussing on the ethics of forcing a country to shoulder debt of 40% of GDP plus 20% for NAMA until it recoups its outlay, all so as to stabilise a banking system in both national and EU interests. The video might show Jedward with “hair-down” before being shown the debt that this country is shouldering and then “hair-up”. It would be mighty! @Jagdip Good idea. and afterwards Jedward could get a “haircut”. @Philip Thank you for posting this. Rambo etc just made my day. 🙂 @Jagdip Singh Any chance of a re-write of the Jedward entry focussing on the ethics of forcing a country to shoulder debt of 40% of GDP plus 20% for NAMA until it recoups its outlay, all so as to stabilise a banking system in both national and EU interests. I am afraid that has been decided not to be in the national interest, Jedward will instead be submitting a song about unrequited love entitled “Lie back and think of Europe.” – they will both be wearing some bondage gear to try and get the German vote and they will be performing an irresistible new dance called the Promissory Note Shuffle to try and get the home crowd on their feet. @Shay@Jagdip If Rambo does not end up being the next Abba (Benny/Bjorn?) maybe he can take over the “Euro Czar” part of Olli Rehns job. Rambo looks like someone who might be capable of being a Euro (Neuro?) Czar who can spot the truth hidden behind the horse/donkey manure. Then after Engelbert wins this years Eurovision Jedward can bring us back to the days when Ireland won the Eurovision every year even though we secretly hoped we wouldnt because we could not afford to host it. During the annual Eurovision intermission ( during which we wont be able to afford to provide entertainment) we can save money by allowing Europe watch Jedward gradually being persuaded by Rambo to take “haircuts” on our behalf 🙂 A hermeneutic 🙂 Of euro’s future no ? @ Shay Cost for NAMA went up yesterday when permission was granted to Treasury Holdings to challenge NAMA http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/treasury-wins-ruling-for-full-nama-challenge-3059332.html Such proceedings foretold and forewarned by NAMA’s critics when it was first mooted, all warnings unheeded of course in the rush to the head to set it up! Gentlemen, show pride in your smilies 🙂 Comments are closed.
