Alas I shall not be taking any interest in Irish news for the next few weeks.
Not that I do anyway, but that’s beside the point.
You see, our Illustrious Leader, Dame Enda has announced he is stepping down, and the meeja are going into a feeding frenzy over who shall replace him.
I don’t give a flying fuck who replaces him. Unless there is a miracle on the scale of the parting of the Red Sea, we are going to just get another cunt to replace the previous cunt.
We have had wonderful bunch of leaders over the last couple of decades.
There was Haughey who lived the life of a multimillionaire with the help of bungs, backhanders, brown envelopes and various other methods of selling political favours.
After him we had Bertie Ahern who studied “economics” at the hand of Haughey and therefore followed the same principles. Of course he was the one who jammed his foot on the throttle of the economy, leading us into a financial meltdown, while suggesting to those that warned of an impending crash should commit suicide. Nice one Bertie! Naturally the little cunt jumped before the economy hit the buffers.
What can I say about Cowen? Not much. He just lurched from crisis to crisis in a haze of alcohol while the entire economy went up in smoke.
Then we got Dame Enda. He was from a different party from the above some some had hopes that he would be different. In fact he was. There is little evidence of backhanders all right, but tons of evidence that he was completely out of touch with reality. Who can forget his imagined conversations with “The Homeless Man in Merrion Square” or “The Man with Two Pints”?
Dame Enda was most noted though for constantly announcing to the world that Ireland was out of the financial crisis and was back to a booming economy, while in the real world there were strikes, a health service crisis, a housing crisis and a growing number of homeless.
So now the meeja is full of idiots talking of Dame Enda’s wonderful legacy and what a great leader he was. I don’t suppose they ask any homeless family for their opinions?
So he is soon to be gone, just as soon as they find some moron to replace him. Off he goes with a little handshake of €3 million. Yes – a pension of €126,000 a year out of our taxes.
Not bad for a fucking primary school teacher from Mayo?
