Re: Re: Why did Ireland bother? Don’t they have Trojan horses?


Interestingly, Ireland’s main export markets are USA, UK and Belgium, which appear to represent about 60% of exports. God knows what the Belgium’s are buying so much of? Maybe Zinc? Germany, France et al are below 5%.

If the Irish devalued, I suspect their market share in the UK and USA would shoot upwards and lets face it, the UK is never going to be placing problems in the way of a country that leaves the Euro.
