Time for coup de farce

Sir -- What we need is another revolution. A comedy coup, if you will.

The disgruntled population must begin by congregating (in shifts) at the gates of Leinster House, where their laughter, directed at TDs, will be heard all across the nation; and a new spirit of insurgency, based on wisecracking commentators led by Tommy Tiernan, Brendan O'Connor, the Bishop of Ferns, Dustin, Angela McNamara, Dana, Pauline McLynn and Michael O'Leary, will be the new national order.

The country would no doubt rally to the cause. And rather than Ireland becoming a laughing stock where even the Greeks are sniggering at us, we could steal a march by laughing our asses off before the rest of the world realises you'll never beat the Irish . . . except always.
