Politics? On Radgery? Get ta fuck...

I can't wait for tomorrow.

"So, Minister, how do you respond to those who say that, once again, you have put the tax burden squarely on the shoulders of those on lower incomes while the wealthier members of society have been given an easy ride?"

"Well, I think there are many questions that people can ask and they have every right to ask those questions. I think to address any specific concern, Brian, would be micro-managing the situation when what the country needs is a look at the bigger picture."

"But that doesn't take us away from the fact that you have imposed, basically, penalties on those who can least afford to have their pockets emptied..."

"Not to cut across you, Brian, but I think we need to get away from a blame culture and deflect the attention on to an economic stimulus package that will benefit the whole country in the medium to long term."

"But surely, Minister, you can understand that the divide between the rich and the poor will grow to epic proportions, given the time frame you have set out, unless you penalise the top 5% of earners now as opposed to the vast majority of the population who earn..."

"Now Brian what I don't want to get into is the realm of hair splitting and semantics... I mean, if you want to argue semantics you can but I'm here to assure the public that if we all take our medicine now..."

"But my point is, Minister, that we're not ALL taking our medici..."

"...that if we all take our medicine now then we can get this country's finances back to a safe place by..."

"Minister, we're out of time but thank you for appearing this evening.... (Turns to the camera) The main news again, the government has announced that we're pretty much fucked so I, for one, am going the fuck home. Sharon?"

That's exactly what will happen.

To the word.

I'm off out of the country.

Meadow said...

Word perfect.

Budget smudget.

I am convinced that politicians are hand crafted by Lucifer and evenly distributed around the world.

NaRocRoc said...

"I, for one, am going home to fuck Sharon".

Would've been a better ending methinks!

Kath Lockett said...

This is utterly BRILLIANT Radge and applies completely to Australia as well.

I particularly like the way that 'micro managing' is now being used by the useless to blame the usefu.

Your fan, always...

The ending is actually "Now we're going over to Joan Burton for her to ramble in the most boring voice humanly possible for two hours so that everyone switches over to the new episode of Desperate Housewives which we paid tons for and isn't getting the viewership levels that we hoped"

Radge said...

Maxi - Can I come too? We'll go bowling.

Meadow - Smudge it indeed.

Hope - Yar.

Narocroc - It was implied. I think. It was late when I wrote it. Mmmm. Sharon.

Kath - Thank you overmuchly. Very kind.

B - She does have a terribly boring voice, doesn't she?

Three men with great economic insight and they all have something in common:

B Lenihan OB
R Bruton OB
Radge OB


*pleass don't micromanage this thread by deleting me!

adogwoof said...

please not pleass

Radge said...

AG - R Bruton is OB??? I did not know that.

Conan Drumm said...

The ceiling has been set: 25% of Jnr Mins are gone. My guess is there will be lots of 20% cuts in spending.

The OB phenomenon between the Nth and Sth city branches is a bit scary.

E Ryan etc

Holemaster said...

The real problem is that this shit goes on all over the world. You can't fight it in one place only, it's all connected.

We're fucked. But we have drink and sex so that's something.

Radge said...

Holemaster - Well yeah, we do have drink. As for...

That's tomorrow, to the word. You've nailed it.

If this bloatatious government would only give up their cars and private jets and perks, the economic crisis would be solved.

Oh no, much better to go push the disabled and elderly out of the wheelchairs and kick 'em a few times... yes, THAT will solve our economic crisis.

You know what would be nice? If Bonaparte came back from the grave and invaded. I'd be fighting on his side.

Radge said...

AG - I've been shushed on that topic one too many times.

Susan - Still basking in the glow of my own prescience.

Gypseysdog said...

Very good Cud. And funny. If only you had such clairvoyance three years ago. Like me. Har har.

Radge said...

5X - You got lucky.
