Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar during their one-to-one General Election 2020 debate hosted by Pat Kenny on Virgin One Media on Tuesday

Watching the “big” debate on Wednesday between Leo Varadkar and Micheál Martin, it’s still very obvious there is no great difference between them.

They have always been “two halves” of a great party.

Let’s not waste time. We are very tired of all this point-scoring, this posturing, and this making of promises that cannot be kept.

This is a time of national crisis.

The best way to “commemorate” the Civil War (whose wounds still fester) is for the two parties to unite and get us back in line with the caring, unselfish spirit of the first Dáil.

John Johnston,

      they’d destroy each other out of pure spite, stupidity and pettiness. It would be amazing. It would make me buy a television.

      Yes my polish colleague heard this phrase for the first time about the debate. She rather enjoyed it.
      As do I.

    Two haves who don’t give any kind of flying fliuch about the many have nots they created between them over the last 11 years.
