    “Our philosophy is to be a leader blah blah blah”. What? I hate this kind of rhetoric. FG’s “philosophy”. Eff off.

    Ireland Inc is still wide open to International Inc. That’s a message our leaders since Sean Lemass have been broadcasting. Ministers who attend St. Patrick’s Day celebrations from San Francisco to Shanghai will rebroadcast that message. It’s business as usual.

    Leo has no philosophy – he’s a bad puppet, an intern promoted way beyond his abilities.

    I doubt he was ever even a doctor.

      Eh, no. He was. I know someone who worked with him. He didn’t give a toss about being one, though, apparently. He had his eye on another career.

          There was a young lady from Birr
          Whose wotsit was covered with fur
          The doctor said YUCK
          Nobody will that hole *uck
          Do you concur, concur with what sir?

          Sadly, Hoop’s line doesn’t make sense, but that’s her fault.

            Oy, it makes sense to those who are familiar with the movie, Andy! The fake Doctor Frank Connors and his contribution to medical training.

    You do realise that “businesses” is what pays for your public services, gives income to workers and in general drives the economy???

    1. scottser

      tax is what mostly pays for public services – business accounts for only one part of the total tax scheme.
      we also receive grant and social funding from europe and we run an asset and investment portfolio. but you knew all that, i’m sure.

        Tax – as in the 50% of my pay I hand over every month from my salary which I get from my American tech company that employs me?

        1. Otis Blue

          It is improbable that you are handing over 50% of your salary in tax and highly likely that you are conflating
          the marginal rate of tax with the effective rate of tax.
