Irish politician Alan Shatter TD, is our Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence. The following statement appeared in the news today -
In his role as the Minister for Time, Mr Alan Shatter TD, says all the necessary arrangements have been made to make sure Santa delivers his presents on time.
“I want to assure children across Ireland that all necessary arrangements have been made to facilitate the timely arrival of Santa Claus on Christmas Day,” Mr Shatter said.
Santa and his reindeer will be helped by gardai, the army and the weather forecasters to guarantee a punctual arrival, Mr Shatter assured Irish girls and boys.
When he comes over the horizon late on Christmas Eve, he may also be sighted by the Irish Air Corps Radar System, Mr Shatter said.
"No excess baggage travel charges will be imposed on the sacks full of presents it is anticipated Santa will have on his sleigh.”
“Both An Garda Síochána and members of the Defence Forces stand ready on alert to provide him with any assistance required to ensure that all his reindeer, including Rudolph, are properly fed and watered.”
The weather forecasters will be letting Santa know about any bad weather, to help him arrive safely to Ireland.
"As chairperson of the government task force on emergency planning, I have asked Met Éireann to ensure that a speedy response be given to any requests Santa makes for information on any threatened extreme weather conditions that could impede his progress.”
“Because of the speedy manner in which he goes about his business and the common travel area between Ireland and the UK, it is anticipated that Santa Claus will deliver his Christmas presents throughout Ireland and the UK in the blink of an eye.”We has our own time lord
