A bonanza is about to hit the Emerald Isles that will be as huge as the Yukon Gold Rush and the Euro invasion put together(?).
Oil, billions of barrels of the stuff is about to be pumped from Barryroe Oilfield into Europe via Great Britain making billions of petro-dollars for the impoverished Irish economy. There are a few problems to be sorted out first and here a few:
A) The IRA are demanding a piece of the action and if they don't get it they have promised some very "explosive" waves in the Irish Sea! Protestant loyalists feel the same...
B)If the petro-billions don't land in the coffers of the Irish government they will annex Northern Ireland and start a civil war with Britain claiming that they have WOMD's!
C)The US have promised solidarity with the Irish because anywhere oil is the US will send their troops in to protect it and if Britain declares war on the Irish again they will also declare war on the US (scary!).
D) The Leprechaun fraternity living on the coast of Barryroe have demanded that Greenpeace (appropriate colour) thwart the building of oil fields because it could have a detrimental effect on their habitats; rabbit burrows in the cliffs of the Irish coast.
And last not least: E) When the oil starts flowing, England are demanding that it is sold in GBP's and not Euro's because then the Germans will never get their filthy hands on it to bail out Greece, Spain, Portugal and Italy (A very contentious issue) thus proving that England really do rule the waves and did win the war!
