Comfy-looking chairs, in fairness.

    Another historic moment for the new government.
    Wake Me Up Before You Vo Vote

    That’s what the green voters voted for.

    Lol. The Shinnerbots will be out in force. Dare I even go near twitter?

    OK grand, lets have Catherine Martin as new GP leader, thanks for making that easy Eamon

    In fairness- giving extra special care and attention to twenty five odd off spring while auguring that the human race should curtail its expansion- may possibly be a little tiring.

    He also voted against a working wage once roused.
    The irony of it being the green Captain Woke.

    It highlights the state of politics right now, they are doormats for popular experts in all areas.

    Much as you’re an idiot for getting caught doing this, I’ve found myself falling asleep in auditorium chairs before. They’re usually ridiculously comfy.

    That said, never anywhere as bright as that.

    This is insulting on so many levels; it’s incomprehensible how any minister/ TD could behave like this – why have the electorate voted for blatant ignorance and disrespectful people such as these? Varadkar says that pubs probably won’t open on August 10th, quarantine from people arriving in Ireland is unnecessary according to Coveney and Harris – probably because Micheál is off to Belgium tomorrow, and in the meantime, while a vote is being taken in the Dáil on a living wage for the plebs, ministers are literally asleep!

    All of this has just happened today, Thursday; but may I say thank you to those of you who voted FG, FF, GP – the rest of us have to live with the consequences and so do you.

    FFS – I find it very hard to believe that none of the perpetually outraged above have never dozed off in class or at a seminar

      Anyone who has spent time in a lecture hall has nodded off, no question. Nobody in a lecture hall is being paid to be there and make decisions that affect other people’s lives. These lads are a disgrace and should be severely reprimanded.

        I think it’s more to do with context

        Didn’t take long for the greens to ditch their social mandate; it’s like it’s 2007 all over again – just without the wall to wall partying

    2. Clampers Outside

      True, but no excuse.

      What I’d love to know is who was talking… someone with the voice of Fr Stone?

  9. Truth in the News

    An expensive political farce at the expense of the poorly paid, how much is Ryan and Co paid
    per hour

    Overly paid TD, sleeping on the job, has to be woke up to vote No on the rights of low paid workers who would be fired immediately if they were caught sleeping on the job. The privileges of the rich.

    Now that is funny – well done folks for reporting this

    I feel this one will run and run (on batteries of course)
