I believe it is not unreasonable to demand some class of a microchip to be installed that shuts the game down after two hours”
With a hat-tip to BreakingNews.ie we learned today that Galway Senator Freely Memes Senator Fidelma Healy Eames previously pledged to write to the National Consumer Association in 2011 to have chips fitted to gaming consoles so they will shut down after two hours.
“Apart from the health point of view, thousands of our children, teens and even young married men are spending endless hours on these machines. Just ask parents how difficult it is.”
Having compared the ill effects of playing video games to those of smoking she pledged to get manufacturers to fit devices which would automatically shut down the consoles and then keep them off for some time. Onwards to the dystopian tomorrow where the non video gaming Irish master race will be free to frape and sext as much as they want.
What a loo-laa. Can you imagine the craic in the National Consumer Association when they got the young intern to ring up Sony and Microsoft and ask them to ‘stick a chip in there that we can get the young fella off the couch’
The Senator, who is going on another ‘fact-finding mission’ to the USA on the tab of some shadowy American pro-life fundamentalist group despite political contributions to the seanad being capped, has been all over the news since being given a Senate seat. Following three failed general election campaign the Labour Panel consisting of the Irish Conference of Professional and Service Associations & the Irish Congress of Trade Unions gave her a seat in the Seanad on a salary of €65,621 BEFORE expenses.
Panti Bliss recalls Fidelma’s wonderful contribtuion to the control of social media debate.
Phil Hogan, the Environment Minister, has branded the Sunday Independent and another newspaper as “knackers” and threatened to “put manners” on them for publishing pictures of himself and his now former press secretary in Doha on Budget day.
Last Thursday, Mr Hogan accused the Indo of engaging in a “disgraceful game” and threatened: “We will put manners on you.” Mr Hogan was reacting to coverage of himself in recent months.
Rich considering The cheapest room in the hotel is 605 euro which is an outrage when he is standing over cuts to the blind and disabled.
The 10-strong Irish party that attended included Hogan’s press secretary, Yvonne Hyland, the woman pictured with him on the front page.
His little finger is definitely on the rump area.- Oh Dear Maybe they’re really good friends?
Well he is doing no worse that Bertie, Biffo and co.
But I recall Mr Hogan was a very strong opponent of cronyism when Fianna Fail were in power.
Amazing they way people change their mind when they get power,
Hogan could cross over to FF and they would be at home in there lot
Yvonne Hyland was a former P.R person for F.G before she became press secretary to big mouth Hogan. Was she hired because of he skills and suitability for the job or was she hired for other reasons? I bet her interview was a real tough one. A lady on 83k a year whose job was to insure no bad PR and no unwanted photos!!! A lady of amazing abality
Money well spent. I doubt it
The woman that big Phil was pictured cosying up to in Qatar has since left her position.
What happened there…. they seemed to be getting on quite well.
Fidelma Healy Eames: ‘They are making out like I am totally materialistic, that I’m on a gravy train’
Senator Healy Eames the Gravy Train Specialist
Senator Fidelma Healy Eames and her husband are enjoying a luxury holiday in Kenya this weekend after they were flown out to Africa by a state-funded agency.
The bullshit and arrogance from the insufferable one is hilarious.
She requested that her husband Michael should be brought on the initial trip to Rwanda for her safety, and because she said she would be lonely without him.
“It’s a strange culture, and I wouldn’t have had the confidence to go on my own,”
Ms Healy Eames described the work load on the Rwandan trip, as very hard work. You have to do two-and-a-half to three weeks’ work within one week. We start at 8 in the morning and don’t finish until 5 or 6. That’s a lot more work than a day’s work at home.”
The maths suggest she did one weeks work and one suspects she has no concept what work is all about.
‘The general public are making out like I am totally materialistic, that I’m on a gravy train’ “It’s like a witch hunt
People are trying to demonize me and that “you” the commoners have an element of misplaced anger. Trying to find someone to blame — it’s petty its daftness gone mad.
Believe me I am in politics for substance.” Yes, insufferable one we understand you’re liking for Bisto.
