Ciaran, I don't mean to be rude, but they called in the IMF officially
over the weeked.
I think software patent issues won't - and shouldn't - be featuring in
the next election, not when one third of all mortgage holders are
already in trouble with their mortgage repayments (and 5% are 3 months
or more in arrears), the total cost of the bailout looks set to be in
the €200bn range (http://bit.ly/bailoutcost), and unemployment is
running at 14.1% overall and far higher than that the younger you are.
