A controversial decision has been made today to shut down the Dáil bar and prevent TDs from drinking at their place of work.
The decision comes as people finally cop on and realise that promoting the consumption of alcohol while TDs decide the fate of a nation is probably not the best idea the state has ever made and could actually be one of the dumbest.
However, many claim that members of the Dáil perform far better while heavily intoxicated and are urging the decision to be reversed.
In the past TDs have made questionable decisions while in the Dáil, like introducing the Household Tax, austerity budgets and grabbing fellow colleagues in search of a lap dance. Many claim that alcohol was a major contributing factor in these terrible decisions, as the majority of people in their right minds would never have behaved in such a way.
The Dáil bar will close, which will mean that all members will now have to work completely sober – something many of them are not used to.
The decision should help the government make more grounded and coherent decisions, but already there are reports of TDs sneaking their own naggins in, with some female TDs opting to use the specially designed Wine Rack Bra’s to sneak their own drinks in.
Numerous ratings agencies like Moody’s have already upgraded Ireland’s economic outlook claiming that a “stable and sober Irish government should help bring stability to the economy and broader financial sector.”
