Tánaiste Joan Burton in Cork County Hall this morning to discuss the future of Ireland’s economic recovery.

Pause.

Ms Burton is also expected to launch the first Bia Food Initiative warehouse, otherwise known as a food bank, in Little Island, Cork at 3pm.

Good times.

    She’s launching a food bank?
    Food banks are a win for the Labour party in government now?

    Yikes, put it out of it’s misery.

    Similar thing happened in UK with Lib Dem gurning over a parcel at a foodbank rather than hiding his face at the fact that under his government, use has dramatically increased.
