    Caught a glimpse of it on the stream.

    Labour are sitting across three rows. Three in front, then two and two – and the seats beside them are empty on all three.


    But then I cried a bit when I saw a bloated contingent of bloated FFers. Six of one…

    Every time I’ve seen that b*llocks Sean Barrett on the TV in recent years he seems to be telling an Independent to shut up. I’ll be glad to see the back of him.

      I really hope Maureen O’Sullivan gets it.

      I really think it should be an independent TD. Barrett was pretty blatant in his loyalties.

      But even if it’s a party TD, hopefully the secret ballot will prompt them to be a bit more independent. John Bercow does a pretty good job of shutting down idiots on both sides with extreme prejudice, more of that!

    So the new Dail with promises of reform start off with the same old political crap. Give the seat to dem cos it brings there numbers down by 1. Don’t give it to Maureen O’Sullivan cos it will fupp up Paschal Donohoe’s chances in the next election.
    Makes you feel like punching a Mayoman.
