When is a regulator not a regulator? When Fianna Fail is in government, HAHAHAHAHA!!! Geddit??? Geddit???

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.

That’s G-O-V-E-R-N-M-E-N-T.

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?

Obviously.

Is he unique in this government?

Hardly.

It’s time to kick the crooks out now, but the only problem is who to vote for.  Another incompetent shower of crooks?

Tweedledee.
