How to Dismantle an Incompetent Dail?

I had to laugh when I heard that Bertie Ahern has today vowed to review laws relating to ticket-touting in Ireland in an effort to prevent sports fans and concert goers from being ripped off.
The Taoiseach was responding to Dail questions from Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny about the fact that some tickets-such as those for the upcoming U2 gigs in Croke Park-were being sold for ten times their face value on the black market.

The Taoiseach described the rip-off as a "crazy situation" and said he would look into it.

It seems to me the only "crazy situation" here is that trivial matters like these are being discussed in the Dail.If the proposed EU constitution gets the backing of the Irish people,who knows what Brussels will have these puppets discussing!
Perhaps Enda can try and persuade Bertie to lower the cost of the next Mary Black concert?Nice to know your taxes are being put to good use,eh?

Funnily enough U2 are currently top of the charts with their song,"Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own".No wonder Enda Kenny wants to see U2 at Croker!
