Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week July 31, 2016

Posted by Garibaldy in Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week.

You wouldn’t half know it’s the silly season from the paucity of content in the Sindo this week. Therefore, let’s give some credit where it’s due. Fair play to Brendan O’Connor, who, while rightly angry that more were not prosecuted, shows a commendable desire to gloat at the imprisonment of a particularly egregious member of the three bankers gaoled this week.

So remember that – and you might feel more satisfaction about that bollix John Bowe getting some of what he deserves.

Although he did also say this

He’s a terrible loss to this country. Let’s get him home. And let’s get Geldof in the Aras.

That’s some stupid statement, indeed. Interesting choice of subject from Dan O’Brien in the Business supplement of today’s Sindo. In a week when the OECD release data to show Irish workers experienced a paltry 1.6% average increase in real incomes from 2007-2015 (UK workers suffered a loss of -10.4%, same as Greece), O’Brien writes a piece based on an OECD blogpost to show that Irish workers are among the least stressed.

If we’re getting a tosser in the Aras can we just go with the biggest – Bono?

It’d be a tie between Bono and Pat Kenny….

Have ye no ambition at all- I can out-tosser all your above tossers by suggesting Michael O’Leary- somebody who has actually worked in the business world…
