A PERFORMANCE ARTIST has served an eviction notice on the government.

Will St Leger handed out fake bank notes featuring Bertie Ahern and posted the eviction sign on the gates of the Dáil.

The notice, dated today and signed “The People of The Republic of Ireland”, reads:

You are hereby notified that you must vacate your offices with immediate effect.

For the offences of: breach of trust, economic treason, falsifying expenses forms, colluding with developers, bailing out corrupt banks, damaging the reputation of the Republic of Ireland.

St Leger also delivered a “small Dáil” to Kildare Street, and wrote on his blog that it contained “empty wine bottles and tribunal reports in a big bag”.

He writes that it’s time for the government to face the chop: “Why not shrink the Dáil to a garden shed, with no heating, no junkets, no luxuries. It’s time we evict to lot of them, take back Leinster House and turn it into a hospital.”
