Snug in their Dail Bar lifejackets as rest of us drown
It adds insult to injury when our government of Marie Antoinettes try to tell us this Budget won't be so bad, says Carol Hunt
FOR my birthday this weekend, my present husband and partner for the past 18 years gave me a DVD. It was a sale item.
I think he was trying to prove that he had bought wisely, but it didn't work. At the sight of what we now call "unnecessary purchases", I automatically experienced heart palpitations, chronic indigestion and the beginnings of a headache that I suspect will eventually require decapitation to quell.
And that blasted -- so good they're giving it two days -- Budget hasn't even been read out yet, let alone passed.
