Joyriding Irish politicians

My favourite writer on Sundays is Mr Gene Kerrgian. In this article he takes on the ‘cream’ of Irish society, our politicians.

You don’t have to be from Ireland to relate to this story, minister (secretary of state- lower level) Noel Treacy was in a rush to make a parliamentary speech, and told the driver he had to be there for 3.30, so the driver put the boot down; and was subsquently caught by the police – speeding.

This happens alot among Irish polticians, they tell us all to slow down as so many are killed on the roads in this country, but when it comes to their ‘important’ business, or even when its not business, they decide to break the speed limit.

Gene deals with the issue perfectly, great writing.
