How much more can this nation stand?

Letter in today’s Irish Times


As if having to suffer the ever-deepening economic crisis, a Government that seems incapable of showing leadership, Nama, the dreadful weather, vision-seeing individuals and their gullible followers, swine flu, contaminated drinking water, a third-world healthcare system, deserted local Garda stations, no broadband, poor roads and an excuse of a public transport system (at least in my part of the country), were not bad enough, we now have to suffer the fast-spreading virus and witless awfulness of Jedward and the return of the Nolan Sisters to concert stages countrywide.

How much more can this nation stand?

Yours, etc,

PJ Curtis,

The Burren, Co Clare.
