    ah a blushirt knife fight… look at clips of the three stooges films to get the sense of them….

    Shatter was able to smear McCabe, Wilson and Wallace with abandon but screamed and screamed when it happened to him. An odious hate filed individual deserves all he gets.

    …apparently, if you accuse Shatter of arrogance you are invoking an anti-semetic trope – wonder where I’ve heard that before…Shatter, arrogance and vindictiveness are traits attributed to you universally…but arrogance is far from your least attractive attribute. When you had political power you were a malign and sinister influence in this country and beyond. You have been a loud advocate of the zionist experiment and an apologist for the horrors visited on the Palestinian people…good riddance…

      No one mentioned his religion until you posted this comment which went off into a rant about Palestine, an unrelated issue.

      It kind of proves the point you were trying to dispute.

        …sorry…I was quoting from Shatter’s interview with Sean O’Rourke this morning…it was he who played the anti-semetic card accusing anyone who would call him arrogant of relying on ‘an anti-semetic trope’. The anti-semetic label seems to be one used by zionists worldwide at the moment for anyone opposed to zionism and their murderous campaign against Palestinians.

          In fairness, I’d be wary of people who have a problem with Zionism but yeah, it’s just dishonest to cry ‘anti semitism’ in response to criticism of how they treat Palestine.

    “Casual relationship with the truth” A new term for the lexicon of Irish political folklore.

    “It’s hard to listen to this alternative fact interview with Alan Shatter.
    Either he’s mad or Enda Kenny is a weird delusional fruitcake.”

    Or both.
