Pete, you know I'm the same - more than happy to personally pay more tax.

What I'm saying is it's unrealistic to expect any government to fix every problem we have so that 67-year-olds can get the state pension. Pensionable ages are increasing almost everywhere in the western world, because of demographic change. If countries that are far better-run than ours can't avoid it, what makes us think we can?
We could just do what the French do, and tell every neoliberal austerity monger to get fucked any time they try to raise the pension age. I'd be up for that.

Got to be careful. I was talking to my brother in the street and a td on his canvass stopped us.

One of his canvassers had his phone out to take a picture of us.

I now have to stalk the td's social media to ensure a photo of me does not come up on it

Ah, you got littered by that too. That rubbish earlier this evening, and SF knocking at the door on thurs has been it. Not really kicked off with canvassing here at all.

17 billionaires eh?



VoxPop of young/new voters on RTE this morning
It'd put the fear of fuck into you - very few registered or with issues that concern them
Out drinking and riding no doubt - and fair play to them- but these are the voters we need to change stuff, and they don't seem very engaged

All off listening to Versatile instead of Kneecap
