I cannot see 'The Celtic Tiger' giving up any of it's succulent share of the snared steak it borrowed from the dead LLama,and for that matter, neither your Uncle Sam and family giving back anything they rightfully earned or stole. nor Mr Gates and friend giving a grant to the state. As the recession is considered a global one,a metaphorical phrase from the past is probably not considered relevant,except for the Irish, for in your own words Joxser,America is 43% Irish, and probably culpable(Catholic logic)I quote the phrase; "When America sniffles,England coughs,and Ireland gets a cold" So the Australian peoples are magnamimous,and generous to a tee,'cough it up mate!!,your gov. needs you.They have retained what we have lost or never had, sympathy for the government?, comraderie?unity?. It's a warm climate down under, the outback is still unforgiving,and Johnny the Abbo is going for a walkabout
!!. The Irish peoples are resilent and creative.An old photograph shows a young Irish boy on the strand somewhere holding the reins of his donkey whilst a young cailin strugles to get a seat on the back of the sturdy beast. For six penies the city lass gets to get a tour of the beach on the back of an ass.
