      Pet head girl is exactly what the big parties want.
      In the future 50 per cent of FG/FF TDs will look and sound like Maria Bailey.
      Progress?!?

    Finally.
    But what a terribly punctuated and presented letter.
    Tomorrow’s cocktails for me is a Baileys sans Comic on the Rocks followed by a Singapore Swing.

    Hasn’t learned, still making excuses, not owning up to bad judgement. But enough about Fianna Fail continuing with Michael Martin.

      Interesting that the two politicians who topped the league in ‘overstated ‘ expenses were Farrell and Bailey.

    Just when they were ramping up their ‘blame the little man’ spin about compo claims jacking up insurance premiums- along come two pints Maria falling off a toy swing- EXCATLY the sort of thing they were trying to punch down with.

      Amazed, and also delighted, to see so many people have latched onto this.
      This clearly didn’t make it past the Spin Unit…
      Or maybe it did intentionally?

    Hopefully she’s now Dundrumming up support for her cause, accept that she’s been given the Booterstown and just Stepaside.

    Was she dragged along to the Dail chambers yesterday to vote with FG in a miserable failed attempt to stop a public enquiry into Shane o Farrell? A shower of two faced ghouls that heap abuse and further misery on law abiding Lucia & Jim O Farrell —- hypocrisy at its best from FG.

    Maria Bailey showed very poor judgement indeed and paid a heavy price. But if anyone thinks this is about FG being honest and wanting to deal with #CompoCulture you need to sanitycheck how you think local politics work. It’s more to do with some numpties losing seats and others wanting a seat at the trough.

    Suddenly the world is full of Windows 95 era font experts making the life of a woman, wife, and mother even more hellish that she deserves.

    Meanwwhile, the focus moves off real issues.

    DLR has three FG TDs. No constituency needs 3 FG TDs. No constituency needs 1 FG TD, so copy yourselves on about what’s important.
