    Default TD'S Dying For A Fag?

    After an Oireachteas Committee voted down Senator John Crown's motion for a proposed smoking ban in the grounds of Leinster House,the Senator said he was disappointed in the outcome.
    But what made me laugh was the following excuse from Fianna Fail's spokesman on health Billy Kelleher.
    Who was more worried that TD'S could get the sh!te kicked out of them on the street! (Maybe he's Right)

    Responding to the motion, Fianna Fáil spokesman on health Billy Kelleher said while efforts should be made to discourage people from smoking, other health factors needed to be considered.

    “It could be dangerous to some member’s health to go outside the gates and have a cigarette because they’d have people outside there waiting for them at particular times when governments inevitably get unpopular,” he said.

    “If people are afraid to go out in the street and have a cigarette because they will face the wrath of an inflamed electorate, stop smoking”, Prof Crown responded.

    Nanny state rules are for the plebs outside the gate and not for the lords and masters.

    Lets all sign a petition to ban smoking in the grounds of Leinster House. The headlines would read - 67 TD's waiting on trollies in the Mater Hosp. Major reforms to take place in Health care. The Minister for Health announced today, from his Hospital trolley, that all peasants would have to vacate their Hospital beds so that the great and the good representatives of this country could recuperate in comfort. VHI premiums will treble in cost in order to prevent the riff raff from contaminating such greatness and this increase in revenue will be used to fund michelin star restaurants and spas in each private Hospital.......................................... .........................................
