We must develop Green Fingers

The pension levy proposed by the Government is just an other heavy weigh on the backs of the PAYE worker. In accepting this or the 1% levy we are almost accepting the guilt for suspect practices by the banking sector. We are like the battered woman who blames herself for the brutish behaviour of her husband or partner.
They (the politicians, economics and even the media) say we should all don the Green Jersey and take some pain. Pain for what? When Bankers behaved like high rollers on Sunset Strip in Las Vegas we are to celebrate a virtual Paddy's Day an month earlier with less money in our pockets! You must be joking, Do we have "Fools" written on our foreheads?
If I don the Green Jersey it will be for all the people who are tied into high mortgages for the next 40 years. Rather than putting on green garments we should get Green Fingers and start sowing some potatoes and vegetables so we can become self sufficient over the next few years. With modern technology we should be able to overcome the disadvantages of a wet climate to be an exporter of fruit and vegetables.
Despite the over building mania we have had there is still have plenty of land which has been growing nothing but weeds which is a sin. My grandmother from Ballyloughane lived by the motto "Waste not Want not". We still have a lot to learn from her generation.

  1. I think Larkin once said that pf nationalism you cannot eat a flag. Never was it truer than today. The term Jersey seems to suggest a tax haven, how appropriate for the golden circle!
