Meanwhile, outside Abtran…

    Looks like Shane Foley forgot his password again.

      Impoverished Taxpayer: What. The hell. Is going on?
      Irish Water Bane: Our plan is proceeding as expected.
      Impoverished Taxpayer: Oh really? Do *I* look like I’m drinking potable water right now? Your hit, on Irish Householders, it didn’t work, my friend! And now you have my construction crews going around the city at 24 hours a day! How exactly is that supposed to help my country improve water services?
      Irish Water Bane: [to Fine Gael Lackey] Leave us!
      Impoverished Taxpayer: No! You stay here, I’m in charge!
      Irish Water Bane: [puts his hand on Impoverished Taxpayer’s shoulder] Do you *feel* in charge?
      [Fine Gael Lackey leaves]
      Impoverished Taxpayer: I paid you a small fortune.
      Irish Water Bane: And this gives you *power* over me?
      Impoverished Taxpayer What is this?
      Irish Water Bane: Your money and infrastructure have been important… ’til now!
      Impoverished Taxpayer: What are you?
      Irish Water Bane: I’m Ireland’s reckoning. Here to end the borrowed time you’ve all been living on!
      Impoverished Taxpayer: You’re pure evil!
      Irish Water Bane: I’m *necessary* evil!
      [breaks Impoverished Taxpayer’s neck]

      OMG, facepalm. Jihad? Have these clowns no idea what is going on in the world right now?

    Abtran have been fantastic in terms of bringing Employment to the region.
    Great stuff altogether.

      yes indeed. such heros abtran are.
      Nothing to do with opening a horrible business in a desperate place where people will sell their souls for jobs.

      The people working there will no doubt claim “i’m only doing my job” which somehow invalidates any claim of immorality on their part.

      Sorry lads – didn’t work at nuremberg and doesn’t work here either.

        haha DK what an absolute idiot you are. Nuremberg, really? You and your lot are why most people think you idiots are not to be taken seriously, just a pack of workshy thugs who should be back in the pub drinking their lives away, quietly.

        Jaysus, you’re a donkey alright.

        Comparing call centre workers to nazis only invalidates your point as rambling hysteria.

      3. Rob_G

        I thought that the Jihad sign would be stupidest thing said in relation to this post, but you managed to top it with Nuremberg – well done.

        1. donkey_kong

          I was being mischievous with references to war trials.
          You folks are too easy to wind-up…..

          seriously though – they take the pay of their master they deserve the protests.
          doing your job doesn’t excuse you.

    Whatever it is about protesting in the housing estates, following or hassling people trying to do a days work is not on. A good few of the engineers, even at graduate level, are being intimidated and followed home. Disgraceful.

    Jihad, Jihas, Jihat – Jihamus, Jihatus, Jihant.

    There, that’s that declined for ya :)

    You could never accuse broadsheet of bias, no mention of the hardline republicans with a totally different agenda manning the water protests
