WATCH: Ireland’s Bailout Clearly Explained With 3D Animation

I saw this at Colin's gaff, and since he is a real live Irish person living in real live Ireland working umpteen jobs 24 hours a day, when he aays this is "one of the clearest explanations that I have seen so far regarding the pit that this country has fallen into", one should take him seriously. I quote again: There is a slight controversy surrounding the authenticity of this video, in regards to its origin (reputedly Taiwan) however, regardless of this, it is one of the clearest explanations that I have seen so far regarding the pit that this country has fallen into.

I particularly like the reference to the government’s ‘free cheese’ programme. This was recently introduced as a suppliment to the poor. ‘Let them eat cheese’ screamed the headlines as this was offered as a paltry ‘benefit’ the same week that it was announced that the minimum wage was to be lowered and that low income earners would also be subject to a tax hike.
