Its interesting, if occasionally depressing, to be living in Ireland at present. Some quite strange things happening. The viral explosion this week of a comedy Irish hip-hop song is the latest one. Think of a cross between 50 Cent and Father Ted. Again, strong language so not for the sensitive. It has the feeling of something various social scientists will be analysing for symbolic information as to a post-crash psychological crisis mentality in Ireland. A couple of US media suggested today that the "horse outside" might be symbolic of the austerity mindset in Ireland (they were joking I think!).
Addendum: A full national debate including senior Irish politician Willie O'Dea on the merits of the video.
