Fine Gael Senator Paul Bradford (above) has said the phrase ‘We are where we are’ 17 times in the House. More than twice as many times as anyone else. He also says “to use an awful phrase/cliche” six times before using it. He also said in 2009 that it was “out of date”. He would go on to use the phrase ten more times after that.
Take it away, Paddy Cullivan (thanks, Bibi)
