The Promised Land?


Over 5,000 years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel: “Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels and I will lead you to the Promised Land.”

Nearly 10 years ago, Bertie Ahern said: “Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses and light up a Camel - this is the Promised Land.”

Now Brian Cowen has stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, raised the price of Camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

(Thanks to the political wit of politics.ie for the above gem!)
