You have to feel sorry for our politicians.
Here they are with their massive salaries and even bigger allowances, trying to avoid doing anything which may actually be seen as constructive, and what happens? They are actually given work to do. Yes – emails keep arriving in their inboxes.
The greatest burden in a politician’s life is his constituents. They keep annoying him with petty complaints about such trivial matters as over-taxation, septic tanks and other assorted rubbish. After all, he has to live in these poverty stricken times also so he knows first-hand just how difficult it is to live on a hundred grand [plus expenses]. Now constituents are writing their complaints in emails and sending those mails to their representative. I mean, who do these people actually think they are? Don’t they know their place?
Our TDs have had enough. They want to be left in peace to do the crossword. They do not want to know about other people’s problems when they have enough of their own. They have decided they are going to do something about it.
They are going to filter out emails from their constituents.
After all, the public had their say at election time, and they can damn well bugger off until the next election.
