Oh, don't say that!!! I'm quite enjoying this particular style of foolery - I mean, an Italian lecturing the rest of us on fiscal propriety and social probity


Anyway, back to the show - what you were sayin' there, weener?

What's weener, please?

You've been very quiet recently, T'weener - too busy selling copies of Surprise behalf of Greece, perhaps?

Re: The Euro project is one of the best and most visionary ones of the last 100 years

I do agree with the OP in one respect, the hypothesis is incomplete as follows:

The Euro project is one of the best and most visionary ones of the last 100 years to prove the complete lack of leadership amongst European leaders.

Particularly from an Irish perspective. May we never trust/depend on the EU ever again. Now how to join EFTA/EEA and leave the EUro......

P.S. By the way...when will you give Northern Ireland back to the rest of Ireland? In case you haven't studied history, or nobody teached you...Northern Ireland was for 1 day part of the Irish Free State, so the entire island has been formally united and independent in the past (6/12/1922).
Be that as it may, the goal of the Irish Free State was to separate or distinguish it from Northern Ireland from that point in the then still existing British Empire and Commonwealth, which its successor entity the Irish republic left later.

Secondly it's not up to anyone in Great Britain to decide to give up Northern Ireland to anyone. It is constitutionally up to Northern Ireland to leave the UK and join another state/entity or become independent or some other arrangement (confederation, federation etc).

As per the referenda-based ratifications of the Good Friday Agreement, it would also be up to the other entity/state to agree to any entreaties for closer union.

Take a look at Scotland in the next few years as an example should the SNP proceed with a "UK relationship" referendum there as promised/threatened.

In a nutshell Northern Ireland already possesses sufficient instruments and levers to decide on its own fate at any time. Leave the English, Scottish and Welsh alone. If they ask the question I'm sure all voters on the island of Ireland will be happy to vote an answer as in the past.......a bonus question might be returning to sterling in the republic

Now back to the Euro "project" (like all projects, it should end at some point, no?...)
