Looks like the men in the expensive suits have turned up and now, somebody who can theoretically drive the bus is at the wheel, to a degree. In between scratching myself yesterday, having a mental meltdown and making a sandwich I watched and listened with great interest as the rats started running. It was like a scene out of Indiana Jones, remember the part with the rats in the tunnel? On a pretty historic day in the country, fella’s were roaring about general election’s and resignations. Nothing about the fact of the few quid the IMF and the EU will hand over in brown paper bags, NOPE! It was cheap politics on all behalf's yesterday as the Green’s decided to pull out and wipe themselves off the curtains.

To me at least, it’s all about self preservation. It’s quite a big probability that the current crowd who have farted at least once in a State car, won’t be in power after a General Election. So the Green’s, while their motivation may appear honest, to me anyway, are only playing cheap politics. Wait for the “WE CALLED FOR THIS ELECTION” and plenty of other slogans. So, when the shit hits the fan and disintegrates it, they decide then to get out? Bollocks!!!
As for the other shower’s, some are keeping quiet but the usual mouth pieces and a few of the more silent types are also calling for heads. Again, here comes the self preservation!!! They need to keep the gig and after all when the go knocking on doors in a few weeks, they won’t get nowhere unless they publically called for someone’s head. Why haven’t they called for heads in the last 2 years? Or feck it, even in the last 6 months? See what I’m getting at here?

As for the crowd who thundered off into the tax payers gaf on Merrion Street yesterday, someone give me a bucket. Mindless stupidity. The guards have enough idiots to be dealing with. Why didn’t Sinn Fein do this thundering around the place 2 years ago? Horse bolted, gate closed. Stupid!!!

As for the Government..well, lads…jaysus. There’s 4 odd million of us in the country. And the majority of that 4 odd million are adults. You do know that, right? You know, alot can vote, drive cars and have really dirty, depraved sex! Most of us would appreciate a bit of honesty. I’m sure many of us wouldn’t have got too upset if we were told “Right, we’re fucked! We’re getting a few bob off some blokes in Europe. It’s gonna be a tough few years, but we’ll get through it. And at the end of it, sure, fuck it, we’ll all go for pints”. Or something along those lines as opposed to the denial and bullshit. It’s like a parent telling a kid that Sparky the dog has gone to the farm, after savaging the balls off the postman. Even the kid knows the truth. See, kids aren’t idiots, and neither are the adults. Well, exceptions apply obviously, but for the best part.

The IMF may be the best thing to happen to the country, depending on their demands and so forth. At least with the IMF there is no politics involved. It might even incentivise some of the scroungers who’ve been on the dole for the last 20 years to get off their dirty arse and go and do something productive. On the other hand, as one caller said last night, it’s one step closer to a Super Duper European State. And you know what, if that happens? We’ll be fighting the aliens together in Croke Park and around the country. Granted they’ll have spaceships. What will we have? The same thing we always had, and the only thing that can and will make a difference. OURSELVES!!!
