Passing the Buck.

Obviously today's Newstime was taken up with trying to explain to the class about Ireland's deal to defer paying back our HUMONGOUS loan to the European bank for forty years.
Puzzled faces.
"But Miss, does that not mean that it will be up to US to pay it back?"
"Yes"
By which time I will be either
a) retired to Turkey
or
b) Dead.

"But it this not just Enda Kenny saying I won't be Taoiseach then, so it won't worry me?"
"Exactly".
It never ceases to amaze me just how astute 12 year olds can be.
