We have an American touring Ireland at the moment.
Somehow he’s bringing the island to a standstill. Or rather so far he’s managed to bring Dublin to a standstill [which is fairly typical of Dublin any weekday anyway] and today he’s virtually shutting down the county of Mayo.
He claims he’s Irish, but then so does every American. I bet that wherever he goes he’s going to claim he is a true son of wherever that country is. I believe he has managed to piss the UK off by his claims of Irish ancestry, but they needn’t worry – next time he visits the UK he’ll be as British as the King [who is as German or Greek as our tourist is Irish].
I went to watch a programme on the telly last night. I went into the local channel but my programme had been dumped in favour of a live broadcast of this tourist making a speech. I watched for about ten minutes and frankly I haven’t a fucking clue what he was on about. I think he must have lost his script or something and was ad libbing by introducing all his mates who had traveled with him and telling us little anecdotes about each of them.
Our politicians positively lapped up every word and glowed every time he mentioned how Irish he was which he seemed to do frequently even in the middle of a completely unrelated topic. They were having little orgasms at every mention. But then they are a load of gullible idiots.
His rambling was so baffling that I think even he got lost a few times. But then the poor chap is in his dotage so I left him to it and watched “Better Call Saul” instead..
At least I could follow that.
