Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... is a fine Hiberno-English phrase that means to make like you're ready for a fight, in lieu of actually getting stuck in.

The Fine Gael / Labour government have gotten exactly nothing from the ECB or the EU, despite campaigning on getting tough, so they are acting tough.  Nothing will come of it.

Fine Gael / Labour = continuity Fianna Fáil / Green Party.

Incidentally there are gatherings / demonstrations for Real Democracy Now in major towns in Ireland today, in solidarity with their Greek and Spanish counterparts.

I'd like to think this could be the start of something, but this is Ireland.
