Let Them Eat Cheese



Good to see the EU giving struggling Ireland a helping hand. They are giving them cheese to distribute to the poor. So the cheese mountain will be reduced. Wonder if the wine lake will be next...

It reminds me of the Fawlty Towers sketch where Basil has a biscuit tin, offering his guests "Cheese?" and a tiny mouse is peering out! :-)

Lord knows why that came into my head.

Will the last one to leave the country turn the fridge off...

And this proves...? Are you trying to suggest Ireland is in the s**t because of membership of the EU? Yeah, right. Nothing to do with the massive property bubble and the antics of Irish banks that were specifically deprecated and avoided by the main contintental banks in EU countries.

Oh well. At least most of the cheese will be Irish to start with presumably.

This is a good game. What else has the EU got stored in its larder? Maybe we can all pig out on it.

Anyway, why should the Irish get the benefit of all that cheese? Is the EU handing out cheese to the Greeks etc, or is it that the EU regards the Irish diet as being largely of cheese? If so, this is extremely poor research. What about Guinness?

Never really understood the concept of Irish Cheddar, either.

Reminds me of those pounds of butter that used to be distributed free in Acton.
They were wrapped in waxpaper with a hammer and sickle emblem and a message, 'a gift from the people's republics to the poor & starving capitalists of the west.'

Tasted like a block of salt.

Of course, politicians on both sides of the aisle in Ireland thought the EU faucet of other peoples money would never cease flowing in Ireland's direction.
