Ah no, that’s not very fair at all.

But good to see the healthy number of visits motivated by search for information on what is causing the mess, coverups, and so on.

I’m guessing my own interest will nosedive following the compact after they corral and brand the sheep. I’ve more interesting stuff to do ๐Ÿ™‚

Pity there are not more females on the site. Economics seems a very male dominated profession.

It is naturally true that while 23.5% of visitors to irisheconomy are from Ireland, 15.7% are from Pakistan, providing good reason for confidence in Alexa’s analytics. Not.

I could not let myself inflict more Dork children on the country………driving down the per capita GNP ratio.
