So we now have the king of the crusty student types, coming out to complain that the new Irish are a shower of shallow, vulgar swine.
and That the assholes you see around Dublin now-adays that have too much money, are a symptom of some moral problems in this country.
That he is embarrassed by the way we are aping the behaviour of our friends in The US. Well since people have been making lots of money for a long time aping their music, how could he expect us not to try copying their other behaviours.
Sounds like someone who doesnt like others getting on the money bandwagon, that he has been on for 15 years..
Money doesnt create assholes, assholes are born, and lots of them tend to surround themselves with the monied, even if they have none themselves. Hence the illusion that money creates assholes - When in fact It attracts them!
But of Course if you make a living whinging and whining haunting and lamenting tunes, you dont want your homeland run wild with crazied-up consumer junkies, high on a visa buzz and driving shiny cars...
Keep Em in their boxes Glen!
