Dáil Clears Schedule To Argue About Irish Water For The Rest Of The Year


IN an unprecedented move a cross party consensus has been reached in the Dáil on the subject all parties wish to bicker about for the rest of the year.

With motions, counter motions and counter counter motions being proposed on Irish Water and its uncertain future, all sitting TDs felt it was important to dedicate all their time to the subject, postponing any other political issues to 2017.

“It’s got everything; a class divide, natural resource, hilarious mismanagement of a semi-state body. I can see why parties are so keen to shout at each other over this for the rest of the year,” political commentator Richard Fallon shared with WWN.

Political leaders are similarly enthused by the matter.

“I sound class when I’m giving out about Irish Water, the voters love it. It’s probably in my top 3 favourite issues I pretend I have the answer to,” Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams shared with WWN.

“Normally we get distracted and have pissing contests on a number of issues, but I’m glad everyone has seen sense and agreed it’s better to just have a sustained argument about Irish Water for the remainder of the year,” Taoiseach Enda Kenny explained earlier today.

“Sure, we could discuss the economy, the health service, housing issues, but every party has equal footing on Irish Water, we all have the chance to score brownie points with the public and look like we’re taking the higher moral ground,” added Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin.

It is believed new Labour leader Brendan Howlin had an opinion on the matter too, however, no one bothered listening as Labour only have 7 TDs.
