India v Pakistan Cricket World Cup Semi

“The TV audience is put at over a billion across the world’s second and sixth most populated countries. Work, it seemed, was abandoned, companies surrendered to the inevitable, declaring half days, and public prayers were said as crowds gathered to watch from Islamabad to Kolkata. The Karachi stock exchange put a big screen up for traders.”

This is a quote from the Irish Times. It sums up that there is more to life than work and slavery. I listened to Ivan Yates and Chris Donohue on the Breakfast Show on Newstalk a few days ago discuss public sector work  hours as if it is inconceivable that another view of life to that propounded by right wingers is at all is at all legitimate or valid.
