A happy obituary — 12 Comments

  1. Well, I am English after all! So I can't be expected to know the names of many Irish politicians. I have a hard enough job remembering the names of the damn English ones. And quite often, I've only just managed to remember their names when all of a sudden they're kicked out of office or sent to prison or something, and the effort proves to have been completely wasted. It would help, I suppose, if I was actually interested in them. But usually I'm not. And for the most part I can't wait to see the back of them, whoever they are.

    Anyway, I take it that I can now completely forget about this Reilly chap. Or is he going to re-appear on one of the numerous reality TV shows that I don't watch?.

    • Heh!  Don't worry – I'm in the same boat regarding names.  There are only four names of note over here.  Reilly [now gone], Senator Crown [religious fanatic], Kathleen O’Meara [government funded lobbyist] and Luke Clancy [ex-ASH and now running "TobaccoFree Research Institute" which is the perfect example of sucking up state funding for doing nothing except lobbying].

      The problem now is that it is a possibility that we may have to suffer another election, and Reilly may manage to scrape back in, though I think that's extremely unlikely.  I think/hope that we have seen the last of him.  I would like to see him take part in  a reality "Gladiator" though……

      • Just to prove I'm bad at names, I just had to edit my last comment as I gave O'Meara the wrong name!

        • Update:  The O'Meara woman has jumped ship and joined REHAB. There's some new fanatic manning the barricades at the Irish Cancer Society!

          • She needs a drop of rehabilitation all right.  I'll have to do some research on our new friend so.  At least we don't have a minister, yet.

            • As I see it, Varadkar is a pretty decent guy and I get no feeling from him that he's pre-occupied by smoking. The problem is what happens next? A cobbled coalition may not be possible and even if it is, it may not last pissing time. I can't see Stubbs Reilly coming back either because he only survived due of Enda's loyalty to him.

              • The only thing that is predictable about the future is that it is completely unpredictable.

                Of course Fatso is still in power until the new gubmint is formed so just watch him try to push through a few more measures before he is unceremoniously fucked out.

  2. Personally, I always thought there was something very creepy about the way he was always surrounded by kids while doing his "plain packs" thing.  I always got the impression he should be wearing a dirty raincoat. 

    They really should put out a court order preventing him from going within a mile from anyone under 18.  Would you have him as a babysitter?!

    P.S. What are you doing in Merka?  You never said you were emigrating?

  3. He is an unhealthy looking fat slob isn't he?  Hardly a glowing paradigm of healthy manliness at all 😀




    • We have a strange phenomenon here where they seem to appoint the unhealthiest specimens to the health portfolio.  Who can forget Mary Mad Cow Harney?
