Listening to-day to live line I was astonished to hear that they were conducting a poll on possible presidential candidates for the presidential race next year when the current Fianna Fail backed office holder packs up and leaves
I only realized that Mary was in fact in office because the boys in Fianna Fail backed her with the Fianna Fail political machinery at the last election
This explains why I got a frosty response when I wrote to the Áras and asked Mary not to singe the NAMA Bill into law and to give the people of Ireland a chance to vote on it themselves Unfortunately Mary was having none of it and was evidently towing the party line.
It was ok to let 400 odd green turncoats vote on it (a vote that could easily be fixed) but the ordinary people of Ireland were destined not to have a say, too bad Mary you failed the people miserably!
Unlike the Icelandic president that sided with the people and helped bring down the corrupt government
Back to the live line presidential candidates,
(Listen here) pod-v-2308101h09m10slivelinepresident.mp3
no surprises, the usual suspects and cancers were well represented in the list, politicians looking for a cosy pasture to retire to, along with the fantastic perks of the job having sucked the taxpayers of this country for most of their lives they now presumably thought that we the people would do as we have always done and that was to vote the way we were told to do.
You had the usual organized proposers who told us how wonderful their candidates were and that they were well respected and knowledgeable and listed off the positions they had held up until now
Berti Ahern, Richard Brutal and Mary o Rourke, were all booted out in the first few rounds, and out of 12 candidates Mr. Fergus Finlay was the people’s choice (10,000 people took part)
The big lesson here was delivered to the hopeful politicians looking for a lush green pasture to retire to and to continue to suck the taxpayers of this country dry, the message was loud and clear
”Get Lost” we’ve had enough of gombenisem and you not going out to pasture in the Áras
The established political parties have in the past handed out this plumb job to X politicians
who have come to the end of their political careers, and as a reward for services rendered this job was even seen as an entitlement by some
Please do not give the same worn out, clapped out so called servants of the people a comfortable pasture to lay down on at the expense of the taxpayers after having screwed us the people all their lives
vote for somebody that has not been a political leach sucking the blood of the taxpayers for the last 20 odd years or more .
