Irish Politics

In fairness to Finian the machine is not just for his constituents


#3253

I’m not going to defend Ross, but would you not agree that you could apply that label to most politicians?


#3254

Absolutely!


#3255

This is his job!! Hello!! It was not for him and it was necessary for patient care!


#3256

Ross is a more insufferable g** bag than most.


#3257

As I said, I am not going to defend Ross. You’re going very easy on him, there, in fairness.


#3258

Hilarious to watch Eoghan O’Carroll Kelly Murphy attempting to defend himself on the news tonight! I needed a laugh.


#3259

Well said sir.


#3260

■■■■ still made it through.


#3261

Líadh Ní Ríada looks a decent candidate. Late bolter?


#3262

Doubt it. SF still toxic to a lot of people.


#3263

I would vote for her over the others but still undecided to vote for her or spoil my vote with a big Go F@ck Yourselves.


#3264

Unlike Labour, Fianna Fail or Fine Gael, eh?


#3265

Yes. Different level of toxicity completely.

Joan Freeman I reckon. It’s a representative role. She would do a good job I suspect. The rest are either businessmen or liars.


#3266

Different level or different type?

As in, “Collins killed LOADS of people but that was ok” (FG) etc etc etc


#3267

Whatabouttery of the kind internet debates are based on. :smile:


#3268

Lawyers or liars or both…

The whole thing is a bit of a farce, the Dragons den election.

Liadh Ni Riada probably the best of a bad bunch, culturally enriched.


#3269

Based on the old Latin rule of “If I throw mud first you are not allowed to reply, NO MATTER how wrong I am” :rofl:


#3270

nah like just comparing something entirely different from history in a modern context as if they’re the same.


#3271

To what EXACTLY was I comparing it? …And the difference is / was???
