Turning out the Lights

There was once a Tunnel, not a very long tunnel, but one that was easy to travel, it was very bright with lots of lights & everyone liked it. However overtime the tunnel became longer, darker, more difficult to travel, the lights were fewer & people grew afraid of the tunnel. Soon enough there was only one light left and it was right at the end of the tunnel, it was very dim and flickered a lot.

Then one day the light went out, people didn't know what to do, they looked around for help & leadership but none could be found. They rang all the emergency numbers they could find but to no avail, no-one knew what to do, until they stumbled upon a number for the Dept of the Environment. They rang the number and spoke to the Green Minister in charge, he informed them it was his and the Governments policy that the light would not be replaced. The people complained that there had always been a light there but with no success.

The Green Minister told them that after 3 years of a Fianna Fail & Green government "THERE WAS NO LONGER A LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL."
