      I love the Healey-Raes.
      The true voice of Ireland.
      Not your skinny latte sandalistas living in a shoebox in Dumpland and thinking they’re at the epicentre of where it’s at.
      They’ve been putting manners on pompous politicians with ideas above their station for decades.
      The Dail needs a whiff of the farmyard to remind the TDs from whence they came.

        yeah, cos those healey-raes are so urbane and cosmopolitan aren’t they?
        parish pump politcs is the very definition of ‘thinking they’re at the epicentre of where it’s at’.

            it’d be funny if it turned out that english isnt charger’s first language – and he’s actually a polish roofer living in slough

            ah don’t take it personally now charger, we’re just holding you up to the same high standards that you expect of others. how does it feel down there?

        Michael Healy Rae eh?

        The second wealthiest TD [in the previous government] is Kerry TD Michael Healy-Rae, with an estimated value of €5.4m.

        Mr Healy-Rae is by far the biggest landlord in the Dail with 10 rental properties.

        he really doesn’t care, just looking for an opportunity to vomit out the “PUNCH” characterisations of Ireland and the Irish, standard for the brexiteer in fairness

    In a way, I think it is in SF’s interests to play Cinderella and let the ugly sisters go into government because as a real left alternative they can pound the hell out of them and, if everything tanks because of Brexit- then FFG will have no one else to blame but themselves.

    Remember when Mick Wallace got castigated for his Dail attire… it’s a slippery slope, all these clowns moving into the circus.
