What would the neighbours think? — 13 Comments

  1. " the country can’t deal with these episodes of lawlessness"  … The people can't deal with the lawless actions of this government more like.

  2. Is this tart blonde by any chance? No wonder Ireland is f@cked if this is her comprehension of Democracy, Investment and Politics. You have my deepest sympathies as here I was thinking our Prez, Francois Hollande was a grade 1 Twat.

    • Blond by nature but not by Nature, if you know what I mean?  She is fairly typical of the breed that inhabits or Dáil / parliament.  Their motto over the door states "Fuck you – I'm all right Jack".

  3. Let's cast aside this national delusion that the world is looking at us. It's like the editor of the Skibbereen Eagle keeping a sharp eye on the Tsar of Russia in the late 19th century – it wasn't true and it wouldn't have made a hair of a difference anyway. 

    • It's all we have heard since the banks went belly-up.  "We HAVE to pay the bondholders", otherwise we will lose credibility.  "The Irish economy is making a phenomenal recovery", which maybe great for investors to hear but it's news to us Irish.  That shower seem to think they can spin their way out of anything.

      • But summer tourists from abroad are assured of our Bord Failte smiles regardless of what ructions may be going on over the water charges. We recommend that visitors dilute their whiskeys and vodkas with 100% Irish spring water to save on metered water from the bar taps.

  4. Nothing like a government making bloody stupid decisions and then blaming on the people when they point them out instead of coming out and saying; "Yup, we were wrong, let's try something else". Sure, the something else will most likely be bloody stupid as well but at least they owned up to it.

    And Irelands' international reputation? You mean it has one? 😉

    • I could count on the fingers of one hand the number of times our lot have admitted that they were wrong.  As well as admitting defeat that would also imply that they are honest which they most definitely are not.

      Personally, I would prefer we had a reputation for rioting rather than one for leprechauns and pigs living in the kitchen!!

        You mean…there aren't any? Shoor an' yor loiyin' ta me na' lad. 😀
