US President Donald Trump with British Prime Minister Theresa May at the G20 summit in Germany last month.

At last someone’s stood up to say
That there’s still somewhere called the UK
He thinks there’s a chance
That it’s somewhere near France
And he’s quite sure it’s not gone away.

So is it outrageous to think
That TDs should cough up for their drink?
Not quaff till they’re ill
And run up a bill
That they pay with a nod and a wink.

RTÉ newsreader Sharon ni Bheolain has criticised the gender pay gap at the station that allows male colleagues like Bryan Dobson (left) earn more for the same work

The women who work on TV
Are saying that they’d like to see
If themselves and the males
Are on different pay scales
For the same shows inside RTÉ
