They already drive on the wrong side of the road, so why not this?

"It's a long way, to Tipperary, ..."

“It’s a long way, to Tipperary, …”

From our Irish Correspondent: (mild) protest over proposal to let drunks drive home “slowly, on quiet roads”.  How else is an Irishman expected to get back to beat his wife and the wee ones?

    Dude –
    “allowing people to drink and drive has been slammed for dragging the country back to the dark ages.”

    Are they frigging kidding me? They never left the dark ages!! Have you ever been to the “Emerald Isle”? It’s one giant cow field. Plant some frigging trees, for Pete’s sake. There is nothing to hit, so let them have a few pops.

    The reason they drink so much is the weather sucks, and there is nothing else to do. Plus the women are fugly. What do you call a pretty Irish girl? Lucky!!! Except Maureen of course, but she was a fluke.

    What’s the difference between an Irish wedding and an Irish wake? One less drunk!!

    Your Pal,
    Walt

    • If you’re Irish, you’re not good looking enough to whet Walt’s interest, Mike Dineen’s line-up shot notwithstanding.

    Just a little distraction to keep everyone’s eye off the ball while the real action goes on under the table:

    “A European Union report has urged tight press regulation and demanded that Brussels officials are given control of national media supervisors with new powers to enforce fines or the sacking of journalists.

    The “high level” recommendations that will be used to draft future EU legislation also attack David Cameron for failing to automatically implement proposals by the Lord Justice Leveson inquiry for a state regulation of British press.

    A “high level” EU panel, that includes Latvia’s former president and a former German justice minister, was ordered by Neelie Kroes, European Commission vice-president, last year to report on “media freedom and pluralism”. It has concluded that it is time to introduce new rules to rein in the press….

    …“Having EU officials overseeing our free press – and monitoring newspapers to ensure they comply with “European values” – would be quite simply intolerable,” he said.

    “This is the sort of mind-set that I would expect to find in Iran, not the West. This kooky idea tells us little about the future of press regulation. It does suggest that the European project is ultimately incompatible with the notion of a free society.”

    Nigel Farage, the leader of Ukip, compared the proposals to “Orwell’s 1984”. “This is a flagrant attack on press freedom. To hear that unelected bureaucrats in Brussels want the power to fine and suspend journalists is just outrageous,” he said.”

    I’ve always liked Nigel Farage: he’s a stand your ground, don’t let anybody shove anything down your throat kind of guy. Pay attention to this kind of stuff because it’s most assuredly headed for our shores, and will just as certainly be heartily embraced by the brainwashed libtard class: “Oh what if someone says something offensive?” Forced political correctness, anyone?

    Funny thing here is is that the guy who proposed this is from Kilgarvan, a village in Count Kerry that my 89 yr old mother hails from. He runs the local council and 3 of its members own pubs. They can’t see the problem with the local farmers having a few pints and driving their tractors home through the narrow lanes. It’s a few miles from beautiful Kenmare and picturesque Killarney. Beautiful country and people – need to go back there soon.
    The Healy-Rae family (one of whom proposed this daft plan) are nuts but Kilgarvan (especially Incheese) people are salt of the earth. Good (really good) times…..

      Just checked that newspaper article again – I read that paper every morning – only to find there are 364 comments!!!! Amazing..lmao

    Dude –
    You know what the best thing about Ireland is? Leaving it!!

    How do you spot the Irishman in a crowded room? He is the one passed out on the floor!!

    Why did the snakes leave Ireland? They had good taste!!

    Why do the Irish kiss the Blarney Stone? Have you ever seen the Irish woman?

    Post something on Netanyahu so I can use some of my Jew stuff.

    Your Pal,
    Walt

    Give Ireland back to the Irish — semi Beatles reference. Most people like the Beatles.
