A very simple question — 11 Comments

  1. Now now Grandad things are LOOKING UP only today the dear leader opened a new production line in a Jelly Bean factory creating wait for it 25 jobs! As I write I think this is not real I must have stumbled into some parallel universe in Ireland. Who writes this stuff…
    “Ireland’s economic recovery is being led by exporting Irish companies just like the Jelly Bean Factory,” he said, opening the state-of-the-art production line at the IDA campus.
     
     

  2. Oh sweet fuck!  You honestly couldn’t make this kind of shit up..

    I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

  3. A very very good question and one which perhaps only somebody in cloud cuckoo land i.e. Dail Eireann could answer.

  4. Simple, if they transferred money from some other budget then what excuse would they have to raise taxes? Excuse they now refer to it as “enhancing” revenue. 

  5. To transfer money from one budget to another would probably require the setting up of an expert group to investigate the implications of doing it, this group would be given a budget, staff and 12 months to report to another group who would also require staffing, budget etc, by the time anything got decided the surplus would be blown, the budgets eaten up & the staff made permanent & pensionable.

    They would then, having met with all the various lobbyists & vested interests come back & report that the costs would outweigh the benefits. in the interim thousands more would have died, Reilly would be making coffee, Shortall would be moaning to the press that she wasn’t informed & Kenny would be counting his Jellybeans. They would then hold a Press Conference, tell us all that under the terms of the deal with the Troika the transfer of money was prohibited & that it was all Fianna Fails fault.

  6. “Now now Grandad things are LOOKING UP only today the dear leader opened a new production line in a Jelly Bean factory creating wait for it 25 jobs”. 
    That’s kinda funny. Oh man. 
    Things are looking up lads!    

    Is Enda a serious moron or what? I wouldn’t put him in charge of tasting the jelly beans, ffs. 
    If it were a woman in charge with his brain power, she’d be a laughing stock and be told get back in the kitchen.  

  7. Anne – Good God but that’s a fierce sexist comment!  You’re right though.  Heh!

    Mossy – I hope those fuckers in the Public Service are happy with their payrises and bonuses while the rest of us suffer?  Of course the deal should be scrapped.
