I was studying an ATM, trying to figure out how to type a message.
Fuck you Brian Goggin! Fuck you Seán Fitzpatrick! Fuck you, Eugene Sheehy! Fuck you, Fingers Fingleton!
I thought it might work. It would be very handy for people to vent their rage against this bunch of complete bastards who run the banks.
And then I had another idea.
Remember those disastrous e-voting machines that turned out to be completely unreliable? The ones that caused Bertie-the-Thick to denounce us as Luddites when we expressed doubts about them? They’re all in storage at the moment, costing a fortune to keep, even though the dogs in the street know they’ll never again be used in an election, because they can’t be trusted.
So I started thinking, Wait a minute!! Why not put them in shops, the same as ATMs? Start asking the people what they think of this ball of shit created by our crooked bankers and politicians.
We could have real democracy. Put up questions of the day. Things like, Well? Will we give the fuckers another seven billion? Yes or No.
How about that?
Or maybe, What do you think of Yehudi Lenihan’s fiddling?
We could have quiz games on the machines, like Trivial Pursuits for politics. Name the ten crooked cronies who borrowed €300 million from Anglo. Prize for correct answer: a midnight visit from ski-masked policemen.
Obviously, they might have to be modified so that people could add comments, like Fuck you, Fianna Fáil crook bastards!
I think this could take off.
