Stop them.

They’re attacking Democracy

Word On The Street Ireland writes:

“A large number of people turned out to protest against the set up of Irish Water [in Cork] on Saturday. The protestors met near the library on the Grand Parade and then marched down the South Mall, along Merchant’s Quay, up St. Patrick’s Street and back to the Grand Parade. This video portrays views from the ordinary people in the march.”

One man told Word On The Street Ireland (at 10.07):

“My father had a stroke, god rest him, the services weren’t there then, the services aren’t there now. And when my father had a stroke, and it distresses me, and there’s no fault now to the staff in CUH [Cork University Hospital]. My father was on a trolley for 24 hours, after a stroke. He wanted to relieve himself, which is one of the symptoms of stroke apparently. And the nurse handed me a pigeon and I had to hold my father’s privates out in the middle of CUH, as people were passing by. I’ll remember that to the day I die. And the situation has not improved. We’re giving money to the bankers, the hospitals are suffering, the nurses are protesting and there’s plenty of money there. As was said earlier, they’re burning €500million, here at the Central Bank – €500million for the next infinite number of years. Could that money not be diverted to pay for the health service?”

    Too late, Irish Water is already set up.

    And that guy with the father in hospital, does he not realise that if much needed funds weren’t diverted towards the maintenance of the water system, maybe there’ll be more money from central government to go towards health care (not that the HSE management won’t piss it all away anyway).

    A million? There were at least 3 million there. Something government something RTE disguising facts.

      I tell you what: all those in favour of paying twice can have a march next week. Biggest turnout wins.

    If irish people put half the effort into trying to make their country better as they do showing everyone else how they’re trying to avoid doing anything the place would probably function properly.

    Had a great time on Saturday night arguing with a guy who was having a go at me for not joining the march even though he knew I was working. He also didn’t know that I know that he registered with Irish Water about half an hour after his pack arrived.

    The man had to urinate into a ‘pigeon’!? Now that’s disgraceful. Also why did his son hold his privates? Surely just grasping the Mickey would be enough, to take aim into the pigeons beak?!? Grotesque
