You are only now feeling sick???
Stroke politics is alive and well with the twiddle dumb and twiddle dumber political system, the gombeens stay in charge!. I am not at all surprised, what about the Bankers salaries they were supposed to be capped at 500,000 euro and yet we have Bankers getting over 750,000 ++ paid by the taxpayers of this BA-NAMA- Republic .Is is any wonder we are such an un-healthy Bunch and have the highest cancer rates in Europe? We are a right bunch of Paddies allowing ourselves to be screwed by our own corrupt self-centred greedy elite in this country! As our health services are cut to shreds and we are told less A&E services and further away are better for us we just sit back until the day comes when we ourselves are looking for emergency care in the meantime our vastly overpaid top hospital managers live a lottery style lifestyle and no doubt they are all privately insured and won’t have to sleep in a hospital corridor ever but can you ordinary Joe be so sure??? So the good times roll for these Public servant leeches,parasites,insiders, as the ordinary people suffer!
Wake up and take back our country from these well placed Leeches in our society!
