On the myth of Irish ingratitude….

Richard picks up the Chad post noting that Saturday was the day that Irish NO voters took a mild kicking from some Europe’s political and media elite:

Irish troops serving in an EU command came under fire on Saturday. The very day Irish voters were being described as, at best, useful idiots for unpleasant No campaigners in newspapers across Europe and in Ireland.

That would include French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and Germany’s Frank-Walter Steinmeier
