I don't know about England, but here, you take care of your own first.
Ireland aren't 'our own' .63 (talk) , 26 November 2010 (UTC) Ireland is not in economic depression as unemployment is not at 15%.
I feel that the UK would have still 'chipped-in' even if Europe hadn't, even if it appeared as a sound, prudent 'loan' from which the UK will benefit in the long term in the sense of 'returns on bonds'.
It showed that somebody at least has long-term 'faith' in Ireland's ability to service the interest, which has not gone un-noticed on bond markets.
But how would the Irish feel if the UK had applied its 'double standards' the other way? pressing to bail out Greece but refusing its geographic and cultural close neighbour Ireland? It would be like Greece letting Cyprus go to the wolves. It feels 'odd' being English nowadays; we share our islands with peoples who we 'like' and regard as 'kin', and yet they seem to despise us in return.

Opinions are mixed, but I don't see how this represents 'hypocrisy'. I don't feel like a hypocrite, because I have been to a good few war cemeteries in Europe, and seen how many names on graves begin with O'.
We are also well aware of Ireland's very quirky interpretation of the word 'neutral' during 'the emergency'. 86.1 (talk) , 22 November 2010 (UTC) That doesn't make sense.
