Sometimes, you just have to smile about it

THEY'VE raided our coffers and bailed out our banks -- do they now have their eyes on our Trocaire boxes?

Introducing the new 'Troika Box'.

The box pictures one of the main bailout boys, Ajai Chopra, along with Taoiseach Enda Kenny.

A big bolded statement underneath the coin slot reads: "How else will we pay them?".

It is all a joke though - and we'd be a long time putting our euros into the boxes before making a hole in our huge debt.

With billions more due to be handed over to former Anglo bondholders tomorrow, Government efforts are now focussing on trying to bring down the costs to the taxpayer.

Trocaire-style collection boxes are not on their agenda. Yet.
