Greta Thunderguts was granted the Freedom of Dublin last night.
This allows her to bring goods tax free through the city gates. As the gates no longer exist, good luck with that one. Likewise she can now graze her sheep on common land withing the city boundary. I can see that going down well with the Parks Department? Anyway they would be nicked quick enough and sold as mutton out of the back of a van.
Personally I couldn’t give a shite who gets a Freedom of Dublin. It is essentially just a piece of paper and little else. If it entitled one to free drinks for life in Dublin that might be something but allowing sheep to graze?
I confess I am somewhat baffled at any honour or title bestowed upon Thunderguts. She is little more than an annoying, bad mannered, loud mouthed schoolkid. She had fuck all training in climatology or indeed any related science and was just brainwashed by her elders who should have known better. If she had been my daughter I would have given her a right tongue lashing for constantly skiving off school and she would have been sent to bed with no supper. End of story and the world would have been spared.
I did a series a while back on “faces I could never tire of kicking“. I could have sworn I included Duncan Stewart but now I can’t find it. I don’t know what it is about this sanctimonious smug little prick but he just annoys me.
If I were still running that series I would probably include Thunderguts in my little hall of fame.
That honour easily equals a “freedom of a city”?
