The Green Party may soon want people to turn off their lights when they’re having sex, a Fine Gael TD has said.

The Tánaiste told the meeting he would shower as long as he feels appropriate.

Fair play to FG for playing schoolboy the week of the IPCC report anywhooo i guess.
I don't really support carbon tax beyond it being a little chip off a much bigger rock but these pricks are just playing populist here.

You'd be a bit more okay with carbon tax if you knew that all the money was going to build wind farms and solar panels and shit like that, but in Ireland you know that pretty much none of the money is going to shit like that

Yeah, Like i think if people were able to know year on year what % of carbon reduction we are getting from that tax it would be viable, but like, as you say, it'll be smeared all over the shop most likely

There's a shitload of investment in insulating houses going on atm, maybe that's where the money's coming from?

i have a vague memory of a friend needing to get from bray to a job interview somewhere in dublin maybe 10 years ago, and the round trip costing something like €15. if my memory is sound, that's a near 75% reduction, inflation not being counted.

Is he complaining that he can't get a hotel in Dublin?
How is there a hotel shortage in Dublin?

We're lousy with them

There is a hotel shortage in dublin, but only because currently, hotels are full of people on housing waiting lists and students. Also covid test / vaccination centres (red cow for example)

If the cunts in power just concentrated on supplying affordable / social housing there'd be ample hotels.

But no, they'd rather tell us we need more hotels (because there's more profit in it for their developer pals) and make jokes about not having anywhere to sleep.

Seems like you could chalk a lot of problems up to everyone being mad for having those babies

No shortage of houses or anything really about 30 years back
Build more, create more. Infinite growth for infinite babies.
No one ever says - stop having babies more.


I am not sure if I am blaming the parents or the kids - it will come to me the angrier I get and the more I stew on it
Damn babies
