In which I go back on my word...

Now I know I said I didn't really have anything to say about the bailout, but I actually do. I was reading about the proposed social welfare cuts in today's Irish Times and the story was supported by the pic below. I guess I think it's a bit difficult to see that that the finance minister is travelling to a meeting to discuss financial cuts for the most vulnerable people, the unemployed, in a chauffeured car. What poor messaging to be giving out, it goes against everything I was taught about image when studying.

I have really been hating Wagner in the X factor and most weeks I don't bother watching him, but I think the pic below is hilarious and I think he's going to be in the competition for a long time to come. According to the Daily Mail* he has been in the top half of the votes every week, and we all know that the Daily Mail is a top class publication.

  1. 'and I think he's going to be in the competition for a long time to come' - bet you wish you didn't write that now :p Although it really was a big fat fix of words from so called judges that made that happen.

  2. Karen, you can only imagine my regret, although it's thankful regret. I was going to have to stop watching if he didn't go, though I'd have to go back on my word in that case cos I often threaten to stop watching but always crawl back. The real issue here is that Daily Mail got something wrong. SHOCKER!
