FG and Labour call on TDs to actually work

I hate having to work again I had to comment on this story.

Fine Gael and the Labour Party are reportedly demanding an increase of up to 50% in the number of Dáil sitting days as TDs returned yesterday from their annual five-week Christmas break.

Those of you from abroad who are reading this, no this is not a joke - they returned from their Christmas break YESTERDAY.

Now bear in mind that we're almost into February at this stage!

Reports on Wednesday said Fine Gael and Labour wanted to see the Dáil sitting for four days every week, with shorter recesses for summer and Christmas.

Gee, should we really allow that to happen? I mean, we wouldn't want them to burn themselves out!

I can't believe I'm back in work already
I bet Bargain Hunt is on right now

The call for more sitting days from Fine Gael and Labour is expected to coincide with a sustained attack on the Government during the upcoming Dáil session as they continue their efforts to present themselves as a viable alternative coalition.

Well I certainly back the idea of reducing the time off for these politicans. They only returned yesterday from their Christmas break can you believe that?

All their kids would have been back in school weeks ago, that's the ridiculous aspect of it all! You can just imagine what the mornings must have been like in the households of these politicans...

"Mam it's not fair! Why do I have to go back to school while Daddy McDowell gets to stay home and watch This Morning on ITV?!"

"Because it's like I told you sweetie...Daddy's an Irish politician."

What a country we live in eh?

We get a week off for St Paddy's Day too!
Damn Bertie, you Irish TDs have it made!

People in Britain have been bemoaning George Galloway for entering the Big Brother house when he should have been working (quite rightly too) but the thing is, in Ireland, our politicians weren't even working at all!

They were all busy sitting at home watching Galloway on TV probably!

George Galloway should try being a politician in this country as it would be far less hassle for him!

Damn straight, Charles!
Shower of gangsters!
