Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week: DIY October 23, 2016

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

Have to go out today so can’t do this properly, but here is a starter from Eoghan, where he also criticises the Gardaí and the threat of a strike.

Likewise, Fianna Fail’s foolish love affair with the public sector unions is now a heavy underwater drag on what should have been a clear sail to power.
Middle Ireland is alienated by Fianna Fail’s failure to take a hard centrist political position on one of the major issues facing the country: the threat of a public sector pay stampede.

The real story of our “recovery” is belied by the state of public pay, as revealed by the only two financial journalists courageous enough to confront this core issue: Dan O’Brien and David McWilliams.

‘Eoghan’ should voluntarily work for free in IADT, as an example to the rest of us. Wouldn’t he be drawing from at least three public remuneration streams by this stage? (IADT plus whatever RTÉ and Seanad Éireann pensions he draws).

So people did’nt vote for FF because they are in love with the Public Sector unions. Nothing to do with Austerity or attacks on frontline services. Harris is a promoter of the ‘extreme center’ – one of their key functions is to take center stage to ensure that no alternative seems either reasonable or possible… and of course he also manages to associate himself with the ‘courageous’ Dan O Brien and David McWilliams.
