Tricky Taoiseach Turn Pink - Back in November while we, the people, were doing what we normally
do, working hard, getting caught in gridlock and worrying if we had
enough money for the Christmas presents, there was a revolution
going on in St. Lukes which we barely noticed. In the darkening light
of that month there was a RED DAWN. Bertie Ahern; the dear leader
himself revealed in an interview with Mark Brennock (IT 20.11.04)
that "I am one of the few socialists left in Irish politics."
As usual we were too busy working to pay attention to what came into
his head and out of his mouth that morning. But even for this gobshite,
this was a highly fantastical excrement that he was spouting.

We took a look around at the socialist utopia that our leader had
created for us and we were not impressed.

Do we have an amazing health system caring for the poor and the
elderly? No. In fact they were stealing money off pensioners who were
unfortunate enough to be in nursing homes.

Do we have free education for all? No, registration charges are
climbing all the time whilst all grants have not been keeping pace and
teachers are being pushed into a corner by the government.

What we do see is a push by the government to run down and privatise
services. Bin Taxes, then Aer Rianta, then An Post, then ESB, then
they appear at our door looking to charge us for water when all it ever
does is rain. The madness of the 'socialist' beloved leader is there for
all too see. So keep up the work comrades. The leader is doing what he
does best, which is planning more stealth taxes and talking shite. Dear
leader, socialism means more than letting the commoners into the
parks. and the Botanic Gardens.
