From a letter in the Irish Times (context: (a) much of the UK and Ireland is currently experiencing floods; (b) the Irish Greens have recently entered into a coalition with the ruling Fianna Fail party):
Irish Times, Sat, 23 June 2007.
Letters to the editor:
Madam – Until the Greens arrived in government, we suffered dreadfully from weeks of blazing sun, with barely a drop of rain. But they promised to act on global warming, and they have kept their word. However, I wonder if they can ease up on the good work for a while, to give me time to build an ark? Yours, etc,
Michael O’Malley, Lucan, Co Dublin.
