More ‘advisers’ for full employment

WE pay our TDs and ministers to do certain work. Then we pay ‘advisers’ to do that work for them. This is a scheme that has great potential for us at this time.

We should extend the scheme. Let’s pay our postmen (no need to overpay them – as in the case of our politicians) and then pay others to deliver the post for them. Next, let’s pay our busmen and then pay others to drive the buses for them. The scheme can be extended indefinitely to suit our needs.

With full employment, imagine how much stronger our hand would be as we go cap in hand to “our friends in Europe” to seek a bailout (which we do not need, do not want, never asked for and which is not a bailout anyway).
