What kind of a fucking eejit is Brendan Smith?
Will I tell you?
OK then. It’s a trick question. He’s a Fianna Fáil politician.
You see, I know he’s a government minister. I knew that. After all, I wrote this post not too long ago listing the people who run our governent, and Brendan Smith is in that list.
Brendan Smith is, let me remind you, a member of our government.
Got it? Government.
Now, correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought the government were the people running this country. And I thought there was collective cabinet responsibility. Yes?
But more to the point, I thought the government had finally realised that we needed a professional financial regulator instead of the fucking idiots who allowed our banking sector to destroy the economy while they were out playing fucking golf.
Or was I wrong?
When the new financial regulator finally gets his teeth stuck into a serious issue — namely the matter of the Quinn group — what happens?
Brendan Smith leads a delegation of gobshites to meet the minister for finance, to see if maybe he can get the regulator to back off.
Hold on a fucking second, now. Did I read that right?
Yes you did. A cabinet minister led a delegation to meet a fellow cabinet minister to see if he could stop the financial regulator from doing his job.
If you never before in your life had a reason for kicking this crowd of gobshites out of office, surely this has to be it.
Brendan Smith, you are a gobshite.
They’re as bad as the bishops. Not only don’t they get it. They don’t even know that they don’t get it.
Is Brendan Smith a complete idiot?
Is he unique in this government?
It’s time to kick the crooks out now, but the only problem is who to vote for. Another incompetent shower of crooks?
