The politicians of Ireland who are currently enjoying their annual six-week summer break have assured the public that they understand the wave of anger sweeping the nation because they feel the same. As the political fallout from the Oireachtas golf night-out that breached every Covid-19 guideline there is continues, Taoiseach Micheál Martin denied claims that there’s one rule for politicians and another rule for everyone else and said he’s just as angry about it as the rest of the country.
“I’m angry too. As soon as this story broke I can assure you it made my blood boil. I mean there’s obviously a snitch working in that hotel. When I find out who grassed the lads up heads are going to roll. I hear it was one hell of a session too.”
Opposition parties have reiterated their demand for the Dáil to be recalled early to address both the political fallout from ‘Golfgate’ and the Government’s strategy on tackling coronavirus. The Taoiseach however has refused to listen.
“Who in their right mind would go back to work when there’s still 3 weeks of their summer holidays left? No-one, that’s who. I can assure the people of Ireland that I’ll continue to be angry about this while I’m at home. If only you could see the frowning I’m doing right now. Fierce anger altogether. Now if you don’t mind I’ve got two seasons of Ozark to catch up on.”
