The Fine Gael website was hacked yesterday, stirring up widespread apathy and indifference. As I write, it’s still off line.
Depressingly, Fine Gael responded to the attack with a series of statements that were based on spin, inaccuracy, and what tech professionals refer to as as horseshit. This is not a good foretaste of what we can expect from the future party of government.
Fine Gael have a very poorly-coded website which is vulnerable to attacks by six-year-olds. As Michele Neylon put it
In response to the attack, Fine Gael posted a statement to the effect that the site had been compromised by professional hackers.
In an unbelievable moment of hubris, FG announced as follows:
Despite the attacks by outside entities, this will not stop us from moving forward to continue to continue to allow the comments of the Irish public to be posted onto the website.
Do these guys know anything at all? Anything? One little thing just to give us hope?
Fine Gael should be far more worried that their site has been invaded by a shite written-English virus, but leaving that aside, just think about the implications.
Their site has been hacked by two fat bastards in Slayer t-shirts with pizza in their beards, and Fine Gael go into defensive mode. They lie. The invent nonsense about international attacks and they vanish up the arsehole of their own self-importance.
Their site was cracked by children, but Fine Gael are afraid to admit it. Instead, they come up with nonsense about what they call an “entity”.
An entity? Are Fine Gael trapped in an episode of Star Trek?
No. They’re not. Fine Gael are simply the same fucking eejits as Fianna Fáil, and their first reaction to any criticism is waffle, instead of holding their hands up, or finding out the facts. They are the very same as the corrupt gobshites we’re about to kick out, and the embodiment of why Ireland is fucked.
This is before they’ve been caught committing a single act of corruption.
Imagine what they’ll be like when they get into government.
Jesus, it’s a movie. Fianna Fáil: Redux. The Director’s Cut.
A horror movie.
