Boring election results
If only the election results were a tad bit more exciting... sigh... regardless I'm still required to finish the story of the Irish Elections 2011.
Fine Gael won a minority government and they are in talks with Labour. As predicted, blah, blah, blah. So looking into my crystal ball I see more social service cuts in the future, higher taxes and a host of boring TV clips from the uncharismatic primary school teacher who is now responsible for the mess that is the Irish economy. Ech. How can Enda Kenny deal with the unaffordable interest rates, the white collar criminals whose deceit has impoverished the nation, and a high rate of unemployment? Perhaps a bit of a background in economics or law would have helped...
The whole mess is a giant, unsustainable, cataclysm of mess, that will not end well unless SOMEONE, with a dogged determination to take the most logical solution to the Irish Problem, steps in to provide effective leadership. Sigh, sigh, sigh.
