Poll: Does today's bailout exit make you feel any better?
Thought we’d ask.

IRELAND OFFICIALLY exits its EU/IMF bailout today – and even our Finance Minister is cagey about how much difference that will make to your life come tomorrow.

We, the people, were called heroes for taking the brunt of the austerity programme.

So does the symbolic nature of today’s exit actually make you feel any better? At all?

Poll Results:

C. Hearing about it makes me feel worse (2191)
B. Makes not the slightest difference to me (1639)
A. Yes, I'm happier today (290)
