Educated bet
« on: August 17, 2020, 12:25:33 am »
Our kid has a hippy mate in the Green party and the story coming from the cabbage rebels is they need a reason to leave government that is non political and wont damage their brand .So they decided if the leaving cert results are a festering fuckup they will support a vote of no confidence in the minister for education ,if they do then they are automatically out of government .Paddy Powers offering 10/1 another general election this year .Mick from Cork has bet his company car on education so if the schools are not reopening or open and close a week or two later or the leaving cert results are a fuckup then the blame game kicks off .Might be worth a tenner to win a ton .

We will find out soon if Leo is still the boss Mick from Cork gets thrown under the bus with his education buzz if Leo is boss he will look out for hospitals and the Pubs and probably schools will have to wait .The big issue is the Greens want out I wont mention names as I was told in strict confidence but one of the Green TD is alleged to have had a breakdown with the stress of being a TD never wanted or expected to be elected .A few of the Green TD are only activists they dont want responsibility just activism .If they leave government over education it wont harm their brand .If you want to see incompetence the Meat factories are festering pits of poison but the Minister for agriculture who cried like a jilted teenage lover when he didnt originally get a ministers car and wages is nowhere to be seen .

Mehaul is the Taoiseach, no doubt about that. He's already tried to make bars close at 23:00 and he's cutting our puppy dole from next month. Dr. Leo was great so he was.

Foreign Affairs for FF so?

The shrewd Inverters had 15 euro @8/1 and another Score @10/1 Francis Fitzgerald for the Euro Gig .Its going to be a woman Covney wont be a candidate ,Miread Mc Guinness is Vice President of the European Parliament dont think the Government will want to give up that Gig .Leo owes Fitzgerald he sacked her for something she didnt do .she is now a 3/1 shot

Is she the one that criticised Dr. Leo's social skills?

Dr. Leo was great so he was.

Is it not a bit sexist for the Europeans to insist on a female candidate? Surely the two best qualified contenders should be nominated regardless of gender, if any. The whole idea that a cute arse or a pretty face should be deemed a qualification for what should be akin to a senior executive role is, frankly, an insult to women and could mark the start of a very slippery slope. How long will it be before we're obliged to nominate a lesbian, a poof, a female by accident of birth gender fluid, a male by accident of birth gender fluid, a normal woman and, at the bottom of the list, the best qualified candidate i.e. a normal man.

I'm not sure nominating a woman who is devoid of womanly charms would satisfy the brief... you might as well have a man who can do the job. The whole thing is PC gone mad. I'll say it again... the best man should get the job regardless of gender, if any.

To put it another way and to rationalise the argument a bit, is it not cruel to put a member of the fairer sex in such a demanding role just to satisfy the whims of some sadistic unelected madame in Brussels?

The madame in Brussels needs other madames to talk tampons but mainly bladder leak knickers....that they've found are attractive!!
