Wanted: One crystal ball.

Coming soon to a Kindle near you.

As many of you will be aware, I dabble in writing fiction as well, and published my first novel as an eBook on Amazon, “The Ministry of Love”, earlier this year. I’m currently rewriting my latest novel, “The Gemini Agenda” and also doing some work on a couple of short stories, all projects with a political theme. It’s off with my editor at the moment, and then will have to go to be proofed and eFormatted for Kindle.

Of course, there’s a serious bit of rewriting to be done, as it’s about a global conspiracy involving the US and EU, which means that I’m hoping that the EU will be still there by the time I publish it early next year.

Or, as it’s set slightly in the future, I’ll just have to try a wild guess as to how the whole crisis works out, as I have speculated some things already, like a certain country having a president named Windsor…

Outrage as Irish refuse to over-drink.

Posted by Jason O on Dec 1, 2011 in Irish Politics, Not quite serious.

There are pints going undrunk! It's an outrage!

There are pints going undrunk! It's an outrage!

DIPSO, the Drinks Industry and Pub Services Organisation, has lashed out at recent figures showing that Irish people have started drinking less. ” It’s a disgrace!” A spokesperson said. “There are Irish people over 35 years old wandering around with their livers perfectly intact, making a mockery of a fine old Irish tradition of death by alcohol poisoning. Why, I was recently in a pub where a group of young lads each had a single beer, and then went for a bite to eat! Like a crowd of metrosexuals!”

DIPSO has called on public officials to lead by example. ” When was the last time you saw a good row in the Dail caused by drink? Sure, back in the day, the minister for justice used to wander into the house well-got, roar a threat at the opposition, and end up barechested and wrestling the opposition spokesman on agriculture because he didn’t like the look he gave him. It is time for a return to those traditional values.”
