Hands across the Atlantic?

Brilliant solution, now why wasn't that thought of before?!
Former Bank of Ireland chief executive Mike Soden, now a leading member of the Irish government’s newly-established Central Bank Commission, has said Ireland should consider leaving the European Union if it renders the country unable to make decisions on its own fiscal policy.

Soden even raises the possibility that Ireland might need to break away from the EU, and become the 51st state of the United States of America
That's an ex-Bank of Ireland chief executive, remember!

How on earth could they have survived without EU (including UK) subsidization?

Perhaps Mr Soden expects a bailout from Irish-America.

I suspect more a case of controversy stirring up extra sales of his book!
