On This Day in Dublin, 23 November 2009

A group of Dubliners are talking about Pat Kenny’s RTE One interview with some of the many civil servants who are planning to strike tomorrow. 

Man 1: And he, asking yer one what she’s had to give up now that she’s on the dole. He, making 600,000 euro a year. Be a little sympathetic, you twat. 

Woman 1: But what do the strikers expect the government to do, like? They’re just going to make the situation worse for everyone for one more day. 

Man 1: It’s the banks. They want the government to go after the banks. At least in America they put some of them in jail. Here, they did feck all and keep cutting civil servants’ wages across the board. 

Tomorrow will be an interesting day.
