I never watch television before six in the evening.
Today had to be an exception, as it is a rare event to watch a government implode before our eyes.
For those of you who don’t follow Irish politics, a whole clatter of ministers have resigned for various reasons ranging from ill health to being too old. The real reason though is that they all know that they are going to be annihilated in the upcoming election.
One piece of great news is that Mary Mad Cow Harney is gone. Even better – she won’t even be a candidate in the next election. To counter that, we have the disastrous news that her portfolio has been handed to Mary the Bimbo Coughlan.
All the vacant portfolios have been handed on to existing ministers, which begs the question as to why we need so many ministers if each one can handle at least two portfolios? To avoid confusion, all ministers will henceforth be referred to as Minister for Lots of Things.
Another great piece of news is that the election date has been announced. It is to be on the 11th March next, so we only have fifty more days left of the worst government in Irish history.
The only question I have now is whether Fianna Fail are going to have the sheer neck to stick Biffo’s slobbering face on their election posters.
I am looking forward to the election, this time around.
I like the sight of blood.
