Nordies can count their blessing they are grouped in GB as a whole. Other wise they'd struggle to break the top 100

Well Fiji come in at rank 98. Might explain the behavior of the poster comets. I’m now willing to accept his behavioral deficiencies.

For Sinn Fein, no.3 is not good enough. They’d kill for top spot. 👀

Ireland has third highest quality of life in world, driven by the hilariously inflated GNI figure, says UN.

Imagine thinking that the average Paddy earns almost the same as the average Swiss resident. :lol:

Someone doesn't know the difference between GDP and GNI. Go back to gnawing on a lump of coal, Taffy.

Ludicrous, isn't it?

The average paddy earns enough to keep himself in spuds, and that's about it.

Most of Ireland's 'GDP' is in fact the dosh Apple & Co have looted from the upstanding burghers of England, France and Germany.

'Better to Remain Silent and Be Thought a Fool than to Speak and Remove All Doubt'........ That's a 19th century take on a biblical quote, Proverbs I think. Very apt though for Welshmen, everywhere.
