Um.

A leaflet purportedly from Cork West TD and junior health minister Jim Daly.

Is this even legal?

Thanks Jack

          D’aul’man, I would’ve thought. Fella refers to one’s mickey.
          Though maybe that’s just me.
          I’m overthinking it and getting confused now.

      in fairness – court or no court ruling …she was harassed and intimidated.
      what happened that day was a disgrace
      that isn’t protest.

      for context
      I was on many anti-water protests but the behaviour that day was one of scum

            He fixed the road. It doesn’t really work in a Cork accent either but sure Brother Barnabas is a trier if nothing else.

            It does in its BOTTY.
            Recently, a very nice Dublin lady told me “you’d never guess you were from Cork” like it was some class of a compliment! The cheek!

            It can be confusing, though.

            Once you lot have been here for more than a couple of years, you tend to start copying our mannerisms and dressing like us. It’s only when there’s drink taken or during dinner that it all goes to fupp.

      Definitely illegal – there’s no disclaimer in small print at the bottom saying “calls cost 99¢ per minute excluding v.a.t.” and the rest.

    As far as I can tell, there are only three logical outcomes from calling Jim’s hotline:

    a) Jim will increase the total capacity of the HSE to carry out these procedures,
    b) Jim will help to get your appointment bumped above someone else who was already in the queue, or
    c) Jim will contact the hospital on your behalf and they will ignore him.

      I’m trying to spell how a spit sounds, but it’s not easy. Mainly because, as a lady, I don’t.

    A TD’s clinic isn’t a medical thing, Jim. You’re not supposed to perform surgical procedures during your clinics, Jim. Dammit, Jim, you’re a politician, not a doctor.

    This is the same tool who claimed on his website, that given how many hours he worked per day, that he was only earning about €10 per hour. He opted not to include expenses and allowances in his calculations.

    Down with the common man is our Jim.

    Likely fills out forms for the Treatment Abroad scheme.

    It is pathetic that TDs need to do this level of patronage and effectively administrative paperwork for people who can’t figure it out themselves. In smaller parties where there’s no risk of running two candidates they get the councillors to do it for them but in the big parties the councillor today is the running mate stabbing you in the back tomorrow so you don’t dare.

        Surely the excellent Citizens Advice Bureaux could perform this service – and deprive greasy politicos of kudos for it?
