Brown my comment is that fianna fail should stop hitting the poor and start hitting the rich but they won’t because the rich scratch their backs because money talks when its in a little brown envelope. They’re only out to look after themselves and not the worker nor the poor. In this country the rich get away with murder because they have the money to buy people off.
