I am sick to the back teeth [what’s left of ‘em] of hearing about Recession.
So things are a bit rocky on the economic front, but do they have to keep going on about it?
The meeja are having a field day, of course. They love bad news, and they are milking the current situation for all it’s worth. Thy are really getting their jollies trotting out the latest redundancy figure and shop closures, as it they were some kind of score to make us feel better.
The financial world is more delicately balanced than a Swiss watch. One word out of place, and shares can soar or plummet. One whisper can decimate a company’s share prices.
The one thing that can be done to help the current situation is to display a bit of optimism. I’m not saying we should pretend that nothing is happening, but this constant doom and gloom is not helping.
The worst offender is, of course Biffo. our Glorious Leader.
Singlehandedly, he kicked off the recession in Ireland with his tales of ‘things being worse that ever before’ and ‘we are billions in debt and things are going to be extremely tough’.
I have sniped at Haughey and Ahern in the past. Both were corrupt gangsters, but I have to grudgingly admit that they knew a little about running a country.
Biffo, on the other hand is worse than useless. He appears to be genetically incapable of making a logical decision. He is a rabbit that is caught in the headlights. Every decision he does finally make invariably exacerbates the situation. To say that he is out of his depth is like saying that Everest is a bit of a hill.
To make matters worse, not only is he grossly incompetent, but his arrogance knows no bounds. He is now stating that he will run the country ‘as he sees fit’ which as we have seen is a recipe for disaster.
This country is floundering and foundering for lack of leadership. There is no one at the helm.
Incidentally, for those of you abroad who wonder where the name Biffo originated –
Big Ignorant Fucker From Offaly.
