THERE IS NO NEED to check the newsfeeds from Ireland for an accurate reading of the State's financial health because the government's pronouncements obscure reality. It is now predictable behaviour and very similar to Comical Ali facing the cameras with American tanks rumbling freely in Iraq. My advice for balance on the Irish question is to read the Wall Street Journal or Financial Times. I strongly recommend that tactic, especially if you want incisive analysis without having to listen to the spin of the current Irish government.
