Mary Hanafin has been quoted in the Independent today ("Thousands seeking help as debts surge") as saying ... "We are seeing more and more people across the country experiencing financial difficulties -- whether they lost their job or been put on reduced working hours or have taken a reduction in pay. In the past year there has been a substantial increase in the number of new clients approaching the MABS service."
OK, so she admits that people are suffering and need help. (Admittedly, she neglects to mention that most of the people are suffering directly because of the decisions and policies implemented by her Govt ... but no matter!).
This is the same Mary Hanafin that is reported in todays Irish Times ("Hanafin warns of welfare cuts") as saying that there will be cuts in social welfare rates and changes in child benefit in the next budget. Minister Hanafin said that it would be “impossible” to look at ways at cutting public expenditure, without considering reducing social welfare payments. Hanafin is quoted as saying "I do accept that you cannot avoid cutting the social welfare budget ... There will undoubtedly be changes in child-benefit; there will undoubtedly be cuts in the social welfare budget."
Right then. She is going to "help" those suffering people by cutting social welfare.
Hmmm. How the f3uk will that help them!!!???!???
What I object to is Hanafin talking out of both sides of her mouth like this. And how the fu3k can she have the nerve to say this and still support John O'Donoghue? And that other t0sser Dick Roche?
She has always made me sick. She is typical FF scum and her and the rest of her rotten "pigs at the trough" party need to be delivered to political oblivion by whatever means necessary.
And this needs to be done as soon as possible.
