THE COALITION government has hit new dizzying heights of ‘surely this will collapse the government?’ this week after unveiling plans to exclude 24,000 survivors of Mother and Baby Homes from a redress scheme because hey, they probably haven’t suffered enough trauma in their lives.

Coupled with doubling down on their defence of an indefensible legal strategy which saw every effort made to ensure people illegally charged for stays in public nursing homes didn’t get compensation they would be entitled to, there is a risk the government have used up their Bastard Behaviour Quota for the year and it’s only the start of February.

“Don’t forget it was official State policy to rob 12,000 people with disabilities of welfare payments they 100% qualified for, and it has only come to light because RTÉ uncovered it” said one Fine Gael member, who pointed out that the subsequent cover up of this wasn’t their fault because it was presided over by Fianna Fáil in 2009, a party they’re happy to share every day in government with.

WWN was under the impression it would be incredibly hard to get government TDs to defend myriad acts of moral bankruptcy but no, TDs were only to happy to excuse it all.

“Well, it really comes down to whether you think it’s correct that we exclude 24,000 people from the Mother & Baby Home redress even though they were ripped from their mother/child or you have an actual soul,” confirmed a Green TD, who says foregoing human decency balances out in the long because we have a few electric buses now.

“And hey, we’re not done yet, there’s a British inquiry into the Omagh bombing we might not aide or comply with in any way and then there’s some ignoring of masked men being cheered on as they suggest burning refugees out of their accommodation to do too. Just as well we’re beyond feeling shame and the public just take it lying down or else we’d all resign,” concluded one Fianna Fáil TD.
