Appearing in today’s Times’ letters page:
“Madam, – My home has so far received the emergency planning booklet four times. Is the Government trying to tell Ballsbridge residents something? – Yours, etc,”
Well, yes, I guess that the government is trying to tell us all something. While some people in the country get feck all from the government, our leaders are so afraid of upsetting the Southside Dubliners that they will err up to 3 times in order to make sure that they know they are valued. Even the emergency plans in this country are overly and needlessly centralised, just like the civil service whom are responsible for the organisation of such things.
Oh well, I guess it’s for the best. When the bombs come and the country is nuked at least the Southsiders will survive and then repopulate the country with a better quality of person, possibly all named Fiachra, gender neutral, who will bring 6-Nations triumph to “The Rock”. Oh no, wait, all Ireland’s best players are Munster men, aaahhhh, government, what have you done????
