At last the government has seen the light.
For months now, they have been criticised to not hitting the wealthy, and have been accused of penalising single sectors of society.
A report on the front page of yesterday’s Irish Times has finally given me hope. They have identified that sector of society that is leeching our finances while sitting on millions in unclaimed taxes. They have found that drain on our resources that has brought the country to its knees.
The government were nearly there when they proposed withdrawing the medical card, but for some unknown reason they did a U-turn and modified it.
This time they are launching an all out attack, and I for one am fully behind them. It is about time something was done about the elderly. They are unproductive. They demand all sorts of allowances and payments which frankly are a farce. They are a drain on the resources of the country and contribute absolutely nothing in return.
The first move is a nice one.
Withdraw their entitlement to a free television licence. Why the fuck should these people be allowed watch television for nothing? They sit there all day, doing feck all except watching television at our expense, when they should be out there doing something productive.
Next, there is the fuel allowance. Why in the name of all that is holy should we pay for them to heat their homes? If they are so worried about heating, then they can damned well get up the mountains and dig some turf. Not only will that provide them with their fuel requirements, but they will get good exercise too.
Electricity allowances? For fuck’s sake! We are paying their electricity bills? Why? Can someone give me one solid reason why I should pay taxes so that some old fart can boil his kettle?
They get phone allowances too! Holy God, but it gets worse. For a start, it is a well known fact that the elderly have no friends, so they spend their time on the phone to sex chat lines and we all know how expensive they are, and we have to foot the bill so they can get their jollies?
They even get allowances for living alone. God give me strength! This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of. They should all be moved into Old Folks’ Homes and their houses given to those that really need them.
Of course there will be some Bleeding Hearts and Tree Huggers who will come up with pathetic excuses, saying that the elderly are the ones that made the country what it is, but I say that is exactly the point. It is those elderly fuckers who reared the builders and bankers of today, and filled their heads with ideas of making money on the quick. It isn’t the builders or the bankers fault – it is the fault of those that brought them up.
The government is being really clever about this. By bringing in cuts in fuel allowances and the like, there is a good chance most of the elderly will freeze to death. This is a good thing, as it will free up valuable resources for the young.
I urge you to read the article. If nothing else it will persuade you to back our government in their time of need. They have had a bad press lately, but at last they have seen the light.
I’m off now to cull myself.
I have done my bit, and the time has come for me to go.
I don’t see why I should be a drain on resources that are so badly needed to support the work-shy, the idle, the knackers, the skobies and all the others who so desperately need my cash.
I know my duty.
