Today, billionaire business man, newspaper mogul and telecoms operator, Denis O’Brien, declined to sue someone. Speaking from somewhere sunny, Mr O’Brien commented on the recent Waterford Whispers satire on his being jailed
“Look, yeah, its close to the bone, but d’yknow, sure isnt satire part of our Irish heritage. I had a bit of a wince, effed and blinded them, but then went for a walk and said the hell with it, its a feckin satirical paper, and I dont want to seem like a bully squashing all and everyone who says boo about me, not that I really give a shite, to be honest, just, well..So, let them off”
Asked about the recent suggestion he would sue the Dail Committee on Procedures and Priviliges, he commented
“that shower….anyhow, look, she said what she said, turns out theres no way to stop it, and they make up their own rules. I think thats bad form, but theres nothing I can do about it, and I have better things to do than fund pointless legal challenges”
The above is of course satire.
