      the game is up, won’t be long

        What are you talking about? He’s a brilliant leader and statesman

        1. scottser

          He appointed mary mitchell o’connor to the cabinet ffs. Weak, sel-serving and stupid more ya.

            Haha my trolling was really excellent on this one if I may say so myself. I’m getting the hang of it now :(

    1. Brother Barnabas

      He’s in good company.

      Of that lot, 15 are unadulterated ladyparts. And 2 may be.

      And social “protection” to that most warm hearted of FG onanists, Varadkar. Still, at least Kenny will be in charge of defence. I’ll sleep better tonight in that knowledge.

    We’ve gone from Pitt the Even Younger to Pitt the Toddler with the Health Portfolio – Pitt the Embryo is next.

            Or “the most dignified bout of diarrhoea I’ve ever had on a first date”

          The real deal was Sachs hotel.

          You walked in a boy and staggered out as a man :)

          1. Bertie Blenkinsop

            Never darkened the door Frilly.

            To be honest I kinda lost interest in going out after they blew up Nelson’s Pillar.

  2. Smith

    That snivelling runny snot Harris for health. Hope I’m not sick during this term.

  3. Frilly Keane

    I give Zappone a week before she breaks out and oversteps

    And when they fall apart
    Zappone will have sum’ting to do with it

    That’s an incredible unimpressive line-up and match up.

    Fine Gael appointed two experienced medical doctorsin the last five years to Health – and they fupped up. Wonder how a child with zero real world experience gets on.

    Varadkar, while totally mixed-political-marriage husband material (Leo, I’m single) is not, shall we say, wired, for caring about the vulnerable and needy.

    Heather Humphrey’s is Mary Coghlan 2.0, as is Mary MItchell O’Connor – weak, unbrief, uninformed.

    Bruton see’s all sentient life as units of biddable labour, god help our poor kids in school.

    Noonan I’m sure is sort of a Weekend At Bernie’s situation. Guy looks/speaks/acts three weeks dead.

    Zappone will rue this.

    If Ross every meant anything he wrote in his books or columns, I give him a month before a incidence of cronyism or obfuscation has him on the plinth.

    Strange to say, and though they may have betrayed everything they claimed to stand for, when you omit Labour from an FG cabinet the on-the-face-of-it quality really plunges.

    1. Dubloony

      Aodhan ORiordan and marriage referendum.
      Alan Kelly and COP21 on climate change.
      Ruaei Quinn focus on literacy and education reform.
      Ged Nash and collective bargaining, Labour relations reform.
      Brendan Howlin public sector reform
      Joan Burton social protection at a time of extraordinary crises in this county.
      All are hugely significant pieces of work.
      Yes Irish water blah blah blah

      Let’s see what this crew achieve of any significace.

      1. BobbyJ

        Joan Burton part privatised Dept of Social Protection with JobPath. Not very Labour

      2. LW

        Didn’t Joan cut the rent supplement while in social protection at a time of extraordinary crisis in the country?

    1. Daisy Chainsaw

      And she has a wife! All schoolgirls will be brainwashed into getting wives and then the men will all become extinct and it will be Enda’s fault.

  5. ahjayzis

    Sexist or not, that ‘Regina Monologues’ bit by Norris was THE standout parliamentary funny since the foundation of the state.

    1. Sheik Yahbouti

      Shows the dearth of wit available in our Oireachtas, so. BTW, I detest Ms Doherty, in case you think I’m defending her. yeuuuuch.

  6. mildred st. meadowlark

    They look so damn smug! Forming a government after months of taking the plss is nothing to be proud of lads. Enjoy the summer hols, ye shower of prats.

      1. ahjayzis

        Look we ALL want to dance on Labour’s grave. But there’s a time and a place.

          1. ahjayzis

            Oh #HEYA John Lyons

            That’s not the kind of rubbing in I’d be doing round his manor

            #gerrup

    1. jonotti

      The electorate voted in loads of independent loons so you can blame them for the delay.

      1. some old queen

        As opposed to the non independents loons who couldn’t work together despite no real reason?

      2. Nigel

        When we mock and deride their representatives we mock and deride the people who voted for them. Just take it as read.

      1. Liam Deliverance

        Yeah the adjournment until May 17th, when I read that it was like getting punched in the stomach. 70 days of taking the piss, now ten days more while the crises get crisisier and then just 8 weeks of “work” before 8 weeks summer holidays/”constituency work”. Is it not time that we insist that only half of TD’s get the full 8 weeks every second year so that we always have operational government. (Also add on the time from when the election was called, 3 weeks or so, did nothing for the country those 3 weeks either.

        1. Kieran NYC

          Presumably to allow ministers to read up on new briefs and for departments to be reorganised.

  7. Seosaimh

    Poor auld Finian Mcgrath, Tommy Broughan was laying into him earlier. I’d feel sorry for him if he wasn’t a repeat offender.
    The thought of that Thatcherite snot Harris in charge of health is giving me chills.
    Hopefully Frances as Tánaiste indicates she’s ahead of Leo in the leadership race.

  8. tomkildare

    the boy harris in health that’s really funny but couldn’t be as bad as oreilly and leo was bad as well. social protection always cleans a minister c.v.

  9. Dubloony

    No minister for Environment, no natural heritage. So is the climate change thing sorted or is God above looking after that now?
    Shameful.

  10. Spaghetti Hoop

    A Journalist Graduate in Health? Arts under a Rural brief? Ireland has traversed backwards.

    1. Bill

      It will because these independents have gotten their snout in the trough and liked what they got. Now they will bend over whenever Enda comes calling.

      1. Frilly Keane

        Well Bruthur
        If is not Zappone or Ross that shuts down this party from within
        It’ll be the Mattie’s and the Ray- Nuas and a very sore Ring

        1. Brother Barnabas

          I hear you.

          I’ve stopped caring, to be honest.

          Looking forward now to just sitting back and watching this poofest implode from within.

    1. ahjayzis

      Dublin isn’t one of twenty six counties – it’s a third of the fecking country.

  11. Bill

    Finian McGrath should be ashamed of himself, selling his soul to get something for his own family. Two fingers up to the people that voted for him in his constituency. I was right not to give the slime ball a vote.

  12. ahjayzis

    I kind of just copped that the cabinet has over 10% gays. That’s kind of awesome, actually.

      Rumour has it that Leo’s going to come out as straight on next Friday’s Late Late.

          1. They Tried To Make Me Go To Rehab

            Well to show how sad I am – I was counting them – aren’t there 21 members of Cabinet? The Taoiseach is a member as is the AG and Chief Whip?

          2. Brother Barnabas

            We’re more than 13% gay so!

            I’ve been telling people that for years.

          3. They Tried To Make Me Go To Rehab

            Then what the hell are they doing there Ahjaysiz – are there really any limits to what they are allowed to do in this country?
