    This man makes a lot of sense, but I get the feeling he'd talk the ear off you in a taxi.

    If I was in his taxi I would say 2 things to him...

    1. Are you busy?
    2. So what time do you finish??

    Is he practising for when he has a passenger? The gaps seem to be left for someone to go 'Oh, right, yeah, you're probably right, hmm'.

    Jayzus he has a skewed view of the Irish.

    He's in for a serious fu*king surprise if he comes over here looking for a misses who'll work 5 jobs and bake him a cake, and he better not ask what the queues are for outside the dole office, cause give an Irish lad an excuse not to work, and some of them are more than happy to collect their hand outs and sit in the pub at 1 o'clock on a Wednesday afternoon talking about what a gobsh*te Enda Kenny is for slashing their benefits.

    Sorry mate, you mean well, but the reality is that the Irish are their own worst enemies. It's nobodies fault but our own. And we're a shower of greedy cu*ts and that's how we got where we are today, not because of the Germans, the IMF or Brittish rule.

    I took him seriously up until he mentioned setting up unions.

    You know what, we used to a hard working people. Back in the 80s in London I always got offered the job over anyone else on the basis that we Irish were there to work, didn't turn up late, didn't take silly time off. Our only downside was that we wanted our two weeks off over Christmas come what may. I wonder what changed.
