I am in Scotland. The past few days I have been camping up in hills, and because of poor radio reception I ended up listening to the only radio
station I could find which was RTE Radio 1 from Ireland.
I was amazed and appalled to hear of the plight of the numerous callers to this radio station. Everyone complaining of the economic state of affairs.
People losing their jobs, having no income, being deep in debt, becoming suicidal, planning to leave the country.
Callers are swearing with anger and frustration, they are calling for revolution, they are asking people not to pay taxes and debts.
They are blaming the banks and the politicians.
Last time I was in Ireland, maybe 5 years ago the place was booming and I was envious.
Now the bubble has well and truly burst and the place is in crisis.
One woman says she has nothin but teabgs and a half a pint of milk.
It's shocking to listen to.
I have listened to todays programme
which are available online.
I also noticed this article
in the press on the same subject.
Is this a sign of whats coming for the rest of us.
Anyone from Ireland can you confirm how bad things really are.
