You really do hate public servants don't you? Even though they like all taxpayers are now paying for wages you earned some years back?
So a few wishes for you - I certainly wish that you do not have children to be educated by public servants - that you can afford private schooling all round.
I hope you do not have to visit your local hospital - that you can go to the Beacon or the Blackrock clinic.
I hope you never have a fire or flood in your home that needs help from the fire brigade - that you have good neighbours who will come with fire extinguishers.
I hope that your home is never robbed.
I wish too that you are never involved in an accident that requires any kind of assistance from public servants - ambulance, gardai, local authority, nurses, doctors that you despise so much.
I hope your current business succeeds and that you nor your employees if you have any ever have to claim any kind of social welfare from the public purse.
Nobody is saying that crime does not occur in every sector of society. Hopefully anyone using public computers to surf the internet for illicit purposes is put on trial and convicted. I'm sure that that conviction is much more likely than seeing the conviction of the property moguls - builders-speculators-developers-politicians that have caused the financial mess we are in ever ending up in jail. Anglo's attempt yesterday to chase after a former bank-speculator type paid an average annual wage per week and who ran up hundreds of millions on that credit card that we are now paying for - your former wages in other words. Do you think he or any one of hundreds of other cowboys responsible for NAMA will end up in jail? I sincerely doubt it.
