Basically we borrowed billions to bail-out the banks. It's not so much a fiscal problem as in Greece and the U.S. than the fact we borrowed money to keep some zombie banks alive.

"To err is human?" They actually said that?!

This is accounting, not sociology. Human error is inexcusable when dealing with national finances, especially now that you have computers to help you keep track of the decimal places.

At least the error was in your favor, eh? Now Ireland is only mildly ruined, rather than severely so, right?
