I see they have come up with a new initiative.
In order to foster the community spirit and to achieve peace and harmony across the land they are asking us to dob our neighbours in it.
Isn’t that lovely?
So you have always gotten on well with your neighbours. You have shared barbecues and Christmas parties. There is always the cheery conversation across the fence. The kids have played happily together. You even look after each others houses during the holidays. Peace and harmony.
Then along comes Irish Water.
Now is your chance to destroy the relationship with a simple sneaky phonecall. Through future generations, people will wonder at the feud between the two families. How did it start? How did it escalate over the years into an outright war?
My neighbours can complain all they like. If I want to top up the lake I will. If the inspectors call I will chuck a few fish fingers in it.
They say ponds with fish are exempt.
They don’t say the fish can’t be processed?
