The Rural Ireland / Red Rag to a Bull Flag was raised in Dáill Éireann again this week when Minister Shane Ross drove another knee into the groin of all outside of the Pale.
The words of the Leo Sayer song – When I Kneed You – come to mind.
The red rag rose Deputy Danny Healy Rae and he responded thus:
“The Minister for North Korea, Red Tape, New Regulations and Stiffer Penalties has made an order to severely punish unaccompanied, provisional license holding drivers.
No Access to Transport
“They have been waiting for driving tests for long periods. He clearly does not understand what it means to live in rural Ireland where people do not have access to public transport.
“Would it not be more productive if the Minister had made an order for speed limiters to be fitted to these cars while they are being driven by those on provisional licenses?
“That would have made much more sense. There are speed limiters in lorries and buses and these could also be used in cars.
“These youngsters have to travel. I firmly believe that a young fellow is entitled to one chance and that every young fellow deserves that chance.
“If young fellows blot their copybooks they can be nailed then but not before that,” said the indignant Deputy Healy Rae.
