Why comment about Greece??? arent we in enough trouble at least Greeks arent afraid of going onto streets to vent their anger, no major demonstatrions in Ireland at all against the cuts, hospitals being closed, welfare cuts, peoples homes being taken from them, families going without food, schools charging hard up families money for books that could be used from last year, families who are having their electric and gas cut off cause they cabt afford to pay their bills, 450, 000 unemployed with no job creation, 1,000 young people leaving country a week due to no prospects, yes we have enough of our own home grown problems, with hundreds taking their lives and the country being ruled by the I.M.F and the E.U we have no reason to think we are any better than the Greek people.
