You know all those US-ians who go on about how the US is the greatest country in the world? How it is the best in everything? Well, to mangle the words of Cartman; screw you guys, the Economist says that Ireland is the champion
the Economist Intelligence Unit had put Ireland at the top of its league table of 180 countries when it came to quality of life
And this is no one off win, because last year we were the best country in the world as well:
Ireland is easily the best country in the world to inhabit, according to a quality of life survey…produced by the Economist Intelligence Unit… is the fourth richest country in the world based on per capita income
Of course, if all this is true, and Ireland is so fabtastic why do we have websites like Rip-off.ie and Rip Off Ireland, not to mention the TV Programme that seems to be griping the nation; Eddie Hobbs’ Monday night hit Rip Off Republic?
I’ve never seen Eddie Hobbs because he clashes with Lost, but I can imitate him from hearing so many other people talking about him.
