The nomenklatura making sure that there is a division between the public service and the private sector worker again.
The joke will be on the public sector workers who are grinning now because as soon as the government has taxed the private sector PAYE worker and destroyed any conditions they have they will turn on the public sector and use the lack of support in the wider community for the PS workers to destroy their terms and working conditions.
Croke Park and the rest will go straight out the window and these eejits don't even see it coming because they are too busy thinking that they are being protected.
Think National. Act Local. Oh- and superstition is just the dark matter of human history.
