Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Why on earth do you think these people are my friends, or that I'd have anything to do with them?

And you clearly don't understand what fascism is, where it comes from, who it affects, or how damaging it is.

It's fine to write off Ireland and Cyprus as tax havens if you want to. But if they're bust - which is arguable in the case of Cyprus, given its alleged resources - I doubt it's because widows and orphans were spending money they couldn't afford.

I'd be perfectly happy to see the senior bond holders scalped in Cyprus. Unfortunately the senior bond holders seem to believe that one of the benefits of running a country as a tax haven is that the population is on the hook for risky investments the population doesn't profit from.

The ECB - which seems to believe Europe is a German financial colony - agrees with them.
