The mark of a man or a gentleman is their understanding of fine wines. As a country, foreign dignitaries need to be assuaged about our position in this world by our ability to wine and dine and act as good hosts.
So it comes as no surprise that an uneducated buffoon currently installed as Minister of Foreign Affairs, Eamon Gilmore, AKA Unhappy Gilmore, is going to sell off our best cellared wines in a pathetic attempt of anti-bourgeois sentiment, so he can curry favour with all the working classes he has helped screw over the last few years.
The wines to be sold include Chateau Lynch Bages Grand Cru Classe 1998, Chateau Leoville Barton Cru Classe 1997 and Kirwan Margaux 2000.
In future, foreign dignitaries will have to deal with bottles of Black Tower, Blue Nun, Goldener Oktober and if they're lucky, Bull's blood. It's as if we are heading back to the 1990's in terms of cuisine and culture.
I'm sure P.ie users will be equally outraged.
