    Ireland has been a protectorate for years now. They have 30bn of wind turbine construction going on; the FIT tariffs that come with it will hang around their neck like an albatross for the next 15 years and more. Big Wind sucks them dry like it and Big Solar did with Portugal, Spain and Italy (the hills around Rome are glittering like a Disco ball from all the PV panels). The connection between this capital misallocation and the PIGS defaults will not be reported anywhere in the EU.
