Michael Noonan made a joke about the e-voting machines debacle and some Irish eejits over in America are upset.
Ciaran Staunton, for example, who owns two Irish pubs in New York, said he’s disappointed the machines are not going to be installed in embassies around the world in order to allow emigrants to vote.
In charity, I’m going to assume Mr. Staunton is trying to outbid Mr. Noonan in the sarcasm stakes.
Noonan’s joke did provoke great hilarity and that’s only appropriate for a gombeen minister in a gombeen state.
Over 50 million recklessly wasted on a very questionable enterprise with no accountability whatsoever and what is the return for Irish citizens?
A sarcastic joke from a leading figure operating within our corrupt political system.
