I have taken a back seat from politics for the last few years but every now and again something pops up that makes me smile..

Watching the highlights of Arlene Foster's performance last night in the debate was one of them..

My ears ******************************ed up when I heard her mention.. "the DUP's 5 point plan"....

I knew I heard that before.. 5 point plan.. then it dawned on me..

Wasn't Enda wittering on about a 5 point plan years ago ???

FG and the DUP take their instruction from the tories in London.
'Keep the recovery going' and all that jazz.....

Arnold Swharzenegger used to have 5 year plans to reach his goals then again Eamon millionaire socialist Gimmiemore rallied against the FG 5 point plan but hey! what a fooking little turnip that skunk turned out to be,, what money is he on these days thanks to the taxpayer ? 200K plus expenses for farting around Columbia ??

I think the 5 Point plan from any politician is to have 5 pints every night and get up the next morning and do what they are told by their masters in Berlin/Wall Street.

Was that when you joined Sinn Fein again or left them again as its hard to keep up.
There was me thinking people might play the ball and not the man as the old saying goes.

In relation to the OP, it seems 'top ** lists' are in vogue the last while. Every time you go to the Independent or similar websites they have '10 things to know about Donald Trumps hair rug' or 'the 9 @ 9'.

I can imagine one of the these meetings at either FG or the DUP HQ:

So we have great plans for the economy, the environment, policing, education and infrastructure, great. But then someone says "what about my idea to slash A&E waiting lists, its got a very high probability of success!'

"Sorry, its called a '5 point plan', not a 6 point plan"

A six point plan would look like the star of David and sent the conspiracy theorists into overdrive.

5 point plans work -



See chart above - 5 point plans work.

Also, before anyone retorts that we are shipping all our yoof off the island for someone else to look after, note that we are enjoying NET immigratation at the mintue. That means we are getting more people INTO the country than are LEAVING.

Na - its keep the austerity going.
10 years of failed government from these two but instead of being booted out of office they will be voted back in by the bogmen and backward people of NI

I wonder who came up with the first five point plan? A very quick search reveals one from 1878.


It's one of those things that seem to be repackaged and resold to the public time and again.
