    Default A National Funfact

    How many here knew that Ireland is the only country in our beloved EU that a national strike is illegal since the 1960's?

    I didnt,

    The Banks and the Post Office had national strikes over the last 30 years. Were they illegal?
    What are the repercussions for those that take part?

    is the whole country going on strike and putting superglue on Brian Cowens fly.

    I guess those that take part will be jailed.

    So the whole country will be in jail,

    Default It would be like the 1916 rising,

    We were supposed to have risings all around the country.Instead turned out TV was good that day because they all stayed at home apart from a few in Dub and a few scattered here and there and of course those who did the honourable thing and turned up were punished for it.

    FFS if it happened today ,it wouldnt be any different to then.Probably myself and that dubladooooooo and a few others.We are here to take over Leinster House!I probably get shot but they miss the ladooo because they thought he was a dingleberry in my arse.

    Wheres the little fecker gone anyway?
