AS IF living in a gombeenocracy wasn’t punishment enough, a weary nation has been the subject of endless bluster from politicians criticizing RTÉ board members for their lack of transparency, which has been labeled ‘the spout of the pot calling the black kettle’.
“It’s kind of rich, like Jeff Bezos rich, that these evasives, who never answer a direct question, are lying to people for giving evasive answers,” claimed the Irish public, who couldn’t understand the Spiderman pointing meme. out of his head as they watched the proceedings.
Unable to find words when asked why they have not registered rental properties with the RTB or about their election donations, among countless other examples, Irish politicians across the division found their voices when they accused board members of RTÉ to do so. Politicians do every day.
“How dare you give the kind of rambling, circular, half-hearted response I give whenever I’m asked why my party didn’t act on allegations of intraparty intimidation or why I supported handing over a maternity hospital to nuns? said one TD, hoping that a flashy Tiktok video of them freaking out in RTÉ suits would be enough to secure another 5 years on the gravy train in the next election.
« Is it too much to ask for some transparency and honesty? » lamented a TD from the government, who was also busy helping the Minister of Justice to speed up with legislation aimed at protecting big tech in Ireland from scrutiny when it comes to the exploitation of people’s personal data.
UPDATE: Ireland is now going through a Motilium shortage due to high levels of nausea experienced watching politicians call for honesty.
