I see they’ve set up some recharging points in Dublin for electric cars.
They call them Juice Points, and Eamon Ryan, minister for slurred speech, is very proud of them. Eamon is absuley cvince abou thr efficien.
His rigorous training as a travel agent allows the minister to understand hard technical details that escape some of us. For instance, Eamon unrstan why it’s much more efficient to burn fossil fuel in a Clare or Kerry power station, convert the heat to electricity and transmit the power to Dublin, instead of burning fossil fuel directly in a car’s engine.
He also unrstan why these four Juice Points are going to roll back the tide of job losses in the country.
And of course, Eamon knows exactly why it’s better to pump the smoke from electricity generation into the air of County Clare than to allow exhaust fumes into the atmosphere in Dublin.
I bet none of the other cabinet members would have such a grasp of fine technical detail. That’s why, in addition to the eight teachers, three lawyers, one social worker and one political adviser, we needed a travel agent.
They unrstan things like heat engine efficiency and lots more besides: for example how to supply a broadband service using two bean tins and some wet string.
