FF backbenchers show the way to Utopia

FIANNA Fáil backbenchers are wonderful for showing the way and increasing the pressure on those public service leeches and their leaders who have created the economic crisis.

Think of all the money we would save if we get rid of all of these drones who are only interested in wasting our hard-earned private sector earnings.

The next step should be to sack them all.

After all who needs hospitals, nurses, ambulances, firemen, gardaí, tax collectors, welfare officers, street cleaners, environmental health officers, social workers, teachers, lecturers, libraries, water supply services, waste management ... the list is endless

It will be Utopia without all of them, won’t it?
