Remember that it was ourselves that allowed the Anglo Irish boys to run amok - not Europe. Our politicos allowed everybody to be a 'developer' or buy to let landlord building ghost estates hither and tither. Somebody had to pay the wages of the carpenters, plumbers, brickies that built them - even if it was after the fact.
If we didn't have Europe we would have been in a much worse situation.
