I can't remember how much I paid. I bought them in Read's in January. I just found another one so I've got seven. I might just hand them out when the vote beggars come knocking. I'll have to wear a fuckin' balaclava though or I might never work again in this town.
Human communication is a very rickety rope bridge between minds. Its too narrow to allow but a few thoughts to cross at a time. Many are lost in the chasms of noise, suspicion, misinterpretation and shooting the message through dislike of the messenger.

Lets start with my seven. Fuck it I'll pay the postage.

Next problem is the cover letter.

I know if I write it will sound like instructions for a neandertal on how to read a book given the idiots who run the country.

Yeah, the country bumpkin cowboy builders (developers :roll: ) - the ones who have effectively usurped the bishops... all "well-educated" christian- brother lads... rip-off Ireland, eh :wink:

Steady on lads - there's more than a little bit of presumption and generalisation here - prejudice even. Among the contributors to this forum there just might be someone who's involved in property development. They might even come from the country and, through no fault of their own, have been educated by the Christian brothers (or De La Salle).

This dublin northside v southside and city v country thing is getting old and it is quite irrational. As an outsider looking in I see some incredible bias in the media in this regards. Radio advertisements that include actors portraying criminals always portray a deep north dublin accent. On the tv show 'no experience required revisited' last night they only verbally stated where the person lived if that person was from Finglas. It's a ridiculous prejudice and it shouldn't be socially acceptable IMO.
