Well said Brigid! Why has the Minister for the Environment - John (Gormless) Gormley - not ordered councils to remove Ragwort from the verges as they are legally required to do? Ragwort seeds spread to neighbouring fields where they germinate and grow into - yes - more Ragwort. Ragwort is a poisonous plant to livestock (horses, sheep, cattle - even dogs) and causes them to die in a painful and lingering way.Tuesday August 17 2010
Why is ragwort so bad on roadsides this year? Do the councils not know what it is? It is poisonous and the councils are breaking the law by not killing it. Or has the law changed under the Green Party?
Does John Gormley even know what ragwort is?
Don't walk the roads or breathe near the ragwort or you will get sick and end up going to hospital. What hospital? Just heard the local hospital is going to close.
I have to go now to pay my increased ESB bill. I think we should feed ragwort to the Greens.
Do your job Gormley!
