Did you miss the point that in the Irish domestic debate it's the neoliberals who are pushing for Ireland to honour its bogus debts?

Default would be a bloody nose to the Irish neoliberal agenda. It would be a bloody nose to "the markets." And it would be a bloody nose to Mrs Merkel and her neoliberal agenda.

Why is it more important to punish the Irish for electing neoliberal assholes last decade than it is to discredit the policies and ideology of neoliberal assholes in this decade?
