    Silly leftist nonsense mind you by pres Mickey D…what nonsense about any idea of a mobilised far right in Ireland. Having said that, viable opinions based on sound evidence now count as ‘far right/ WHY?

    They have necks like a jockeys nether region considering how they have brought our country to penury. The damage they have done to people’s livelihoods. They have destroyed our economy and country with their arrogance, incompetence and ineptitude.

    Any normal person would hide their face in shame at what they have done, the fact that they don’t tells us everything about their despicable morals and character.

      Have to agree. They shamelessly parade themselves, wrapping themselves in the cloaks of better people. Talk about ‘standing on the shoulders of Giants ‘?!? Utterly disgraceful.
