• I was looking at a debate in the Dail on television. First of all, there were very few members there and those that were behaved like children, jibing and sniping at each other. What an image!
Above the din I could make out a few words, like "the poor", "the vulnerable" and that great word "austerity".
There wasn't much austerity from the same politicians when they claimed €750,000 allowances for the month of August at a time when the Dail wasn't even sitting. That was money borrowed to keep our country going. The poor crathurs!
