Anyone hear your Man Crosbie on RTE 1 earlier, speaking about the economic situation.
There is a "yearning amongst the people for this to end"
When it does apparently " it will end suddenly and there will be a major upswing". He also said that property in terms of appreciation is finished and we as a nation are now all about Pharmacuticals and computers and given the chance he would head off to Athlone in the morning to work for free on the Great Mall of China, and finally about 6 times he told us that the Irish "are an amazing people"
Funnily when asked about Namas involvement in his business he claimed that there was a confidentiallity clause that prohibited him from speaking about it
Yeah and as for 'we get no Arts Council money, subsidies, or whatever'.
To top it all - 'We're well used to meeting important people .... the Queen walked into our office, I mean - the QUEEN'.
Vomit-inducing, he is.
Why should he get a cent of taxpayers money, the bollix. Let me give one further example why apart from the Nama crap. Every musical that is imported into his (SEMI-STATE SPONSORED AND THEREFORE SUBSIDISED indirectly by the taxpayer) theatre employs ZERO Irish actors, musicians etc. bollix. Apologies for the rant, but I do feel a little better for venting the auld anger
