Kenny ‘State of the Nation’ address to be signed by Mandela funeral faker
Taoiseacheen Edna Kenny (Mrs) is to make a televised address to the country on what Ireland’s highest paid comedy writers are calling “Ireland’s exit from the EU/IMF bailout programme”. The Taoiseacheen is to make the ‘State of the Nation’ broadcast for the benefit of the deaf in the company of the guy who pretended that he could do sign language at the Mandela
celebrity selfie fest funeral earlier in the week.
The decision to hire ‘have-a-go-signer’ Moses Goodluck Charleston as a Government Special Advisor on Special Communications Access was made at a meeting of the Communications Committee earlier today.
Government spokesbeing Seoseamh Mac An Geoirballai told The Emergency that Mr Charleston’s expertise in deflecting from actual events with his antics would be a valuable skill for the Taoiseach to be able to take advantage of. “Sure ye know yourself what himself is like with the poking and the hand waving alone at a press conference” Mr Mac An Geoirballai said. “At least with that lad from the Mandela yoke doing the interpretative dance beside him, nobody will be able to make a blind bit of sense what Edna’s saying. “
The spokesbeing offered a tantalising glimpse of life in the corridors of power when he hinted at the Taoiseacheen’s apprehension at making the so called ‘State of the Nation’ address. “Up the walls! It’s up the walls he’s been. It took us two hours to get him out of that big cupboard in the corner of his office when we suggested it. Then some gom went and mentioned the “Vincent Browne” word and didn’t he scurry off and lock himself in the jax overnight. Ructions! Tis ructions we’ve had altogether”.
It has been confirmed that Mr Charleston will be paid as Special Advisor at normal Special Advisor levels above normal levels of pay for his engagement.
