The Dirty Dozen w/e Nov 20th 2011

Nothing very dramatic coming up this week or even this month, the fuss over the billion-dollar bond done and dusted our national media has moved on, and yet next month - December - we'll pay out more than we did in November, including THAT bond, a total of 15 bonds for an aggregate of €770m, and in January we pay €3bn. Add the two together and what do you get? Why, €3.77bn, just a few bob shy of the €3.8bn cuts/taxes in Budget 2012 - not THAT'S what I call symmetry!

Some things happen because it's inevitable, some things happen because we let them happen - we're letting this happen, month after month.
