      Did I ever tell you about the time Suggs asked me if I could give him 50p? I did. I didn’t really expect to get it back.

            I once gave €100 to a bloke who said his name was Astro from UB40.
            -We were going to buy a glass-bottomed boat together, in a little village near Ochos Rios and get rich. I was going to be able to go there on me holidays whenever I wanted and bring all me mates.

            I wonder what ever happened to that guy.

            -You know when you’re having one of those nights, when the smoke alarm goes off but you know for a fact that the house isn’t on fire?
            You know what I mean.
            -Mi no yu du ‘cos yu a herbalist too.

            It’s like that here.
            Peace and love, especially to you.

            (If anyone knows how to take the battery out of a smoke-alarm, please reply. Thank you.)

            C’mon, one of you must know how I can stop this thing.
            -There’s a crowd gathering outside me door.

            I don’t know what brand it is. It’s cream-coluured, but it used to be white. There was a button on it but that fell off after me first kick.
            -I don’t know what to do.
            Hurry up.

    IT: Roll-out of water meters under review.

    No surprise there as FF has already stated that they are redundant. The figures are interesting spin mind. 850k out of 1.3m. I expect that is really 850k meters installed and most are within the 1.3m.

    Irish water don’t do facts & figures as we know them.

      Sorry just checked my mobile as I ran out of reading on IT website. *820 k installed out of 1.05 m. My bad.

      €500 m to date? Probably spin too but even that would buy quite a few doctors and nurses.

        Hi there, Some Old, take no notice of any published figures on cost – except to multiply by three. The thing is a mess. FF and the majority of independents were directly elected on a pledge to totally abolish IW, months later we’re being told “pay your water bill – it’s de Laaaaw” whilst simultaneously other Deppitees are calling for refunds to those who did pay. What is wrong with this picture? Anyhoo, Some Old, I have enjoyed and appreciated your contributions, but this forum is not for me – for pretty obvious reasons. Goidnight Sweet Prince.. …
