Polly goes Paddy-bashing

Polly Toynbee accuses the Irish of "piracy" and being "bad neighbours" in the Guardian today, and opposes the bailout, saying that "Ireland shouldn't get a penny" until they abandon policies she appears to blame for spreading economic catastrophe over the face of Western Europe.

"Cameron says he is being 'good neighbours' with the Irish. Why, when they have been such terrible neighbours to us?" she asks.

Just imagine how the Guardianistas would react to those words coming from the pen of anyone on the Tory right.

Could it be possible that irony isn't quite dead after all?
