Minister Dempsey reassures the nation (from afar) as another committee is formed

Pat Kenny’s usual professional demeanour dissolved into helpless laughter today after reading out the following government press release regarding Transport Minister Noel Dempsey’s reaction to the cold spell.

The minister is out of the country on holiday, but, the press release reassures everybody:

He’s keeping fully abreast of the situation through officials and colleagues; he’s requested his officials to meet with relevant counterparts in other departments and agencies to ensure maximum coordination of efforts.

Meanwhile, on the home front, the rest of the buffoons have finally responded to the cold snap by forming, yes, you’ve guessed it, another committee.

The emergency response committee is meeting to discuss the situation and no doubt will have recommendations on the table by August.
