I know there is a separate thread on the musings of Isobel but I thought her contribution in the IT today was nothing short of miraculoushttp://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/pro ... 08788.html
She recounts a 30-minute journey in a taxi and the alleged musings of the cabbie. It's all very conspiratorial stuff really, and it might well have actually been said by a real cabbie in a real taxi where Isobel was a real passenger.
But isn't it just amazing that Isobel was able to quote verbatim the taxi driver so much. I mean did she record what he was saying and if she did, did she inform the man he was being recorded, or did she simultaneously write it down in shorthand. She certainly wouldn't have just made it up...
"because they knew we were a nation of homeowners and that if we got half a chance, we’d be like kids in a sweet shop, buying up all around us"
"So, they knew we’d be so embarrassed and guilty, that we’d be down on our bended knees, apologising and taking whatever punishment they doled out. Of course, they have Nama controlling things here on the ground; just to make sure that there’s no uprising.
At any little sign of trouble, they nab another one of the big boys, to remind the rest of us that we won’t get away with anything.
“They’ve people everywhere, infiltrating the place and quietly running the show."
Of course, they’re not well after all that drug-induced hypnosis: they don’t last, Bertie lost it and the poor Brians, God help them, and now Enda has the look of a man in a trance, he won’t last long either.
Not their fault really, they’re not well, none of them are themselves"
