    Enjoy it while you can Finian. See you next election (in a few months). We’ll be in the long grass. Waiting.

    Dolmio sauce! Oooh, swanky! Obvious who is on the TD’s salary. Personally I prefer the Aldi version…

    A sellout. You can be absolutely guaranteed he was waiting on the opportunity for years. well he got his opportunity, but unfortunately he’ll be hammered by the public next election

    wtf are people getting outraged at?

    He thinks there should be more smoking areas. He’s right, there should be.

    Airports are a good example. Every airport in the world has those perspex smoking rooms for smokers. Except fpuping dublin where if you’re not near the one smoking area, you’re SOL.

      Now rotide, don’t you be posting that sort of common sense stuff on here. You’ll have the anti smoking nazis lecturing you for the rest of the day.

      You have to admit it’s pretty astonishing that a health minister of a country in the West, with all we know about the harms of smoking, to come out with something so stupid. But I guess, this is what you get when people with no qualifications (another school teacher is appears) are put in charge of certain portfolios without the amount of switch-on that is required to actually be in charge. Certainly not an Irish issue but I would suspect in other countries they say it behind closed doors.

        Who is the health minister Don? I’m lost. Did that sleazy little git in the Clearys suits not get health?

      Suck it up. No, wait… You can’t.

      But then the old saying that you should not argue with stupidity. Applies to McGrath and you.

      Luckily younger people won’t have to suffer inevitable trips to the cancer ward because of passive smoking. Luckily, barmen’s health is already improving through smoke-free pubs, with lower rates of strokes and heart disease.

      Airports aside, most pubs and restaurants have wonderful smoking areas called Outside.

        God it took a whole hour for the jackboots to arrive. You are slipping lads.

    I agree with him on the smoking areas. It’s the whole, paying Irish Water thing that has everyone bugged.

    It’s easy being an independent politician. Fill in a few Department of Social Protection forms for your less literate constituents (“He fixed it for me”), and once in a while come up with some idea for legislation. It don’t matter how pointless or controversial, as long as it gets some attention in the national press. Or, even better, Liveline.

    What’s that you say? You need to up your game once you’re in Cabinet? Nonsense. He was promoted for loyalty, not competence.

    What the feck is going on, i am outraged.
    This guy in government.
    How is that.
    Was there an election or what.
    Ohh well sorry i did not notice.
    It all seems the same old.
    Ground hog day.
    Them hogs are getting bigger and fatter and hairer and stupider.
    Always with snouts firmly in trough.
