On bended knee to Merkel
Sir -- Brenda Kenny, leader of the Fine Girl Party, along with Amy Gilmore, boss of Induced Labour, are joyous when getting their pretty heads patted by the IMF, where sleazy DSK once held sway. But our betters, nonetheless, apparently.
Our little island is expected, primarily by the compliant politicians, to stay on bended knee while the nation's wealth is sucked out of the country by wretched banks,and the hateful bullies of the so-called "troika". This all takes place without a whimper or a whisper of discontent from our Government.
Moving on, we can now expect our health problems to be taken care of by the radio/television gentle urgings and advice from Micheal O Muircheartaigh and the two brave lads who aren't afraid to say 'prostate'. Why waste time going to your GP or hospital ward? Sure we'll be grand, just be sensible and don't be bothering the HSE with petty health issues which might not be life-threatening. Turn on the radio and listen carefully for what ails you. Apply as directed.
