We DID build the roads ourselves. It's not like we brought a load of Belgians over to do it for us.
The EU pumped the billions in and our governments decided how to spend it. (I remember Albert saying avote for the Amsterdam treaty was a vote for 800 million).
If you've got a problem with how the billions were spent then it's our government who must answer to you. (Maybe they invested in the AIB. A bit of EU regulation wouldn't go astray there either).
The bad infrastructure reinforces my point about the poor quality of politician we have in this country. Even with billions thrown at us we still couldn't put a decent infrastructure together.
