Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Actually, I'm suggesting that they shouldn't have the numbers dumped on their heads at all and that the idea that reporting that Ireland's GDP per head rose by 0.1% at PPP equivalence stoat-belly wombat botherer is the slightest bit meaningful or useful to the body politic is gibbering nonsense. Replacing it with more meaningless numbers is not going to help: we'll just be told that Ireland's Guinness Quotient is higher than the UK's and aren't we great? It still hides what needs to be discussed.
