There are so many things about how the government in Ireland works that I simply DO NOT GET. Like, for example, this news story about Brian Cowan wanting to cut the number of junior ministers. Now, ok, that's fine. But what doesn't make sense is that he's asking them to *all* voluntarily step down so that he can re-hire only *some* of them. What a load of crap that is. Just cut the BS and fire the people you want to fire for chrissakes. I do NOT get it.
