Suffer little chisellers

Bertie wants a referendum for de kids. According to RTÉ News, he "said he wanted to see constitutional protection from maltreatment, neglect or abuse for children".

It does sound like a nice idea. Maybe someday all de kids will be able to avoid maltreatment, neglect and abuse like overcrowded classrooms, schools with holes in the roof, housing estates where they can't go out cos they'll get in the way of the cars hurrying off to the shops, and gobshites who waste public time and money on feckin leaky swimming pools or on selling off an airline and then complaining cos someone wants to buy it.
