Day after day, I browse the headlines from Ireland in the hope that I will find something to cheer me up.
Day after day, it’s the same old shite. Murders, NAMA, debt, Lisbon and politicians giving reasons why they shouldn’t explain why they are allowed to milk the system.
It is so fucking depressing.
I want to wake up one morning and tune in to see something really cheerful.
“Gardai are not treating the assassination of Bertie Ahern as suspicious”
“U2’s offshore accounts to be repatriated to solve financial crisis”
“Collapse of Lisbon support cited as reason for Fianna Fail mass suicides”
“Smoking ban rescinded as passive smoking is found to be harmless”
“John O’Donoghue’s application for bed in Simon Community refused”
“Grandad to be granted ministerial pension in recognition for services rendered to the state”
There are plenty more that would cheer me up, but I will leave that to you.
I live in hope.
