Government announces new initiative
The Government today announced a new initiative to overhaul the Health Service and to reduce our dependency on fuel imports.
Bertie Ahern announced today that Mary Harney is to be removed from the post of Health Minister.
“Sh Sh She ha ha has been an enormous obstacle in our drive for a be be better health service” he said.
“In fa fa fact she has just been an enormous obstacle!”
Asked what post she would be given instead, Minster for the Environment, Dick Roche replied
“Actually, we will be melting her down and refining her into bio-fuel. We reckon there is sufficient there to supply all our gas and oil needs for the next fifty years”

The Irish Nurses Organisation welcomed the announcement.
“Now that this vast obstacle has been removed, maybe we can progress forward” a spokesman said.
The Motor Industry announced that they had been running trials for the last few months in conjunction with the ESB and that a test run using Síle DeValera had been extremely successful.
I am glad I am not in politics.
I would hate to be melted down!
My mother, the financial fulcrum of our family since Dad retired, is a nurse and I think it’s a fucking outrage that they won’t pay the nurses the money they merit and give them the working hours they deserve. May every single Government minister get afflicted with all manner of strange maladies until this abomination of a situation is resolved.
In other news, would it be possible not to make the WordPress thing send out follow-up comments to my e-mail account? I keep forgetting to check the box and my inbox was flooded yesterday.
Let’s just say you’re a popular man …
@Grannymar – she deserves it.
@Dario – I am absolutely 100% behind the nurses. If it meant waiting for an operation because of their dispute, I would gladly do it. And Bertie’s excuse that it would break the national pay agreement is beyond contempt.
I would love to see Ahern and Harney up to their necks in bedpans and MRSA. See how they’d like it!!

I’m soooo sorry I’m so popular 😉
Poor Mary H. do feel sorry for all the size comments that get made against her. As a woman it is particularly hard. No issue ragging on her record however.
Have to agree with D. can you set the email notification to default off pleaseeeeeeeeee.
Hi Flirty. I don’t feel sorry for her at all. She’s Minister for Health for God’s sake. Gender has nowt to do with it. If she were minister for anything else, it would be a different matter.
I remember her when she first entered politics. She was alive and vibrant. She had a personality then. Now she has just become too used to the high life and the power. She looks, sounds and acts as if she is bored with the whole business. The sooner she goes, the better.
I had a look at the e-mail thingy and clicked a few boxes. I don’t know if it’ll do anything..?!
If it were not for the fact that you were blogging via a satellite link on Pitcairn Island, you would be in danger of the Government cutting telecommunications links to Belville as well as the roads.
Imagine the level of dangerous emissions from attempting to run Poolbeg on Ms Harney!
Actually, Ian, now that you mention it – they are frantically digging up everything around me. They must be trying to cut my phone lines?? [Let ’em dig – I’m on wireless!!!]
I hadn’t thought about the noxious fumes. There must be a way…. Melt her down in a lift along with a few others? And have the army on standby?
