An Open Letter — 8 Comments

  1. I’ll swap place with you. Next time, you insult the guy face to face and I’ll write the blog afterwards.

  2. I also remember a time when you had to get a prescription for nicotine chewing gum. This when the gubmit was trying to tell people to stop smoking but was making it difficult for them to get one of the aids to help them do this.
    Further, he says he has a profound concern for the welfare of all Irish Citizens yet why is he not doing something about old people having to spend all night in hospital corridors on trolleys? Refer to letter in yesterday’s IT from Mary Burke. 

  3. John – Just give me five minutes notice please?

    Mossy – The whole thing is a farce.  As you say, he claims that public health is his first priority but has done fuck all in the areas that matter.  He prefers to take the cheap shot at the smoker and pretend he is doing something worth while.  The Bully State at its best.

  4. And I thought our lot on this side of the wet stuff were out of touch. The man’s a joke (as well as his policies). These people are dangerous man….

  5. Just wondered if caught smoking in this big field in Dublin what happens, a fine if you dont pay the fine would that mean jail in the same jail as all the bankers?  The truth is when the Irish knuckled down when they first banned smoking in pubs these gobshites knew they can get away with anything.
    This might interest you about water charges looks like EU poking their noses again so the politicians are again telling lies the EU are ordering them to bring in these charges.
    Way forward:
    Put in place water tariffs based on a consistent economic assessment of water uses and
    water value, with adequate incentives to use water resources efficiently and an adequate
    contribution of the different water uses to the recovery of the costs of water services, in
    compliance with WFD requirements. The ‘user pays’ principle needs to become the rule,
    regardless of where the water comes from. Nevertheless, private households should,
    irrespective of their available financial resources, have access to adequate water provision.

  6. Peacock – If I’m sent to the same jail as the bankers I’ll be fine.  None of ’em have been brought to court yet!  I read the water thing – fourteen pages of pure waffle that could have been easily condensed into one page, whose message essentially is “screw the punter”.
