Have you ever gone to a gig so ridiculously funny that you can’t actually communicate with the person beside you? You are reduced to grimacing; words just can’t come out, tears and snorts, yes, but words, no. When I finally pulled myself together at Tommy Tiernan’s latest show in Vicar Street, it struck me that Tommy might not realise this, but he has a lot in common with mainstream economic thought.
Tommy Tiernan, Franklin D Roosevelt and the IMF have something in common: they all want the small homeowners to get debt relief of some sort.
Tiernan’s brilliant take on the present debt crisis can be seen on YouTube. It’s a pretty blunt form of permanent debt repudiation but, that said, it is not a million miles away from what the IMF sugghested last week.
