for a start we would have to write off the £7 billion we lent to Ireland.

Cheaper holidays abroad?

The last think we need is whingers forecasting doom and gloom when everything in the garden's lovely.

Just stock up your larders with tins of food.

I don't think there's much doubt about the fact that Ireland will default on its debt.

It's not what but When!
Very bad news.

"It's not what but When!"

Are you seriously suggesting that the Euro is in danger of collapse?

The article in the link is speculation, pure and simple. Rest easy, it isn't going to happen.

I wouldn't be so confident!

WHY ?
... just being upbeat and breezy about all isnt going to make it go away
The banks (probably GER excl.) cocked up
The Goverments "cant let them fail." [why?]
result ... Joe/Jane Public get misery the Best Bankers get Bonuses .... even the ones who dont live on the east bank(sic)

Despite the almost universal British mockery of the Euro it has become a very widely used trade currency, coming up to, but perhaps not quite yet on a par with, the US Dollar.

It is as likely to fail as the US Dollar, and far less likely to fail than the GB Pound.

I'm not "just being upbeat and breezy", I'm being realistic.

Fell free to rub my nose in it when the Euro collapses.
