    Hilariously, pot-bellied Mattie McGrath has likely done Labour a good deed here. This will do them no harm at all.

    lol we’re in serious tit-for-tat territory now in this FFG v’s the rest race to the bottom competition, aren’t we

    Can the rest of these representatives who have not adhered to the mask wearing please all issue an apology prior to photos emerging. They know who they are.

        Proper Charlie’s twopenceworth. FG must have put all of the new ‘social media’ recruits into the one phone box.

          Come off it Goomeister, as Principal of the Shinner Special Communications Unit, you live for the rough and tumble of social media battles with your FG opposite numbers. A plague on both your houses I say!

          As I say, the FG choice of social media/troll candidates is atrocious. Not an intelligent bone between the lot of you. Trolling doesn’t equal intelligence. If you learn one thing this year, make it that. Bring it back to the party.

            “Trolling doesn’t equal intelligence”: well, you wrote that book Giggidy. Careful now or a senior party member will call to your bedsit if you don’t match up to what’s expected of Senior Shinner (SS) Social Media Warriors. Yikes! How is Christine O’Mahony doing? Chastened?

          2. GiggidyGoo

            Trolling up the wrong tree there. Do you pray in the Church Of The Assumption? Lol. Trolls these days, you just can’t get them. Leo may re-write his job description for you boyos.

        ROFL. So many head spaces to live in, all with oodles of space. Give me a clue where you’ve hidden your intelligent genes – they’re nowhere to be seen here.

        Yourself, Charlie, Rob, Britnboxy should make contact with BidX and see if you can go into a pool rental scheme sale.

      Absolutely, just imagine it was you, and then decide if you’re cool with your image being published when you are at your worst

      We are living in an age that is a snitches dream at the moment. Then there are also people on twitter just waiting for one wrong word, mistake, or bad take so they can get someone fired. Not pleasant, or very liberal.

      1. Anti Bots

        Or else calling bigots / racists or whoever out for wrong doing? Why post anything that is bigoted or racist? Its not a mistake.

        1. Micko

          Coz things are subjective and nuanced.

          A subject one person thinks is “bigoted and racist” may be different from someone else definition.

          Context and intention are also important.

          Simples ;)

          M’eh, an opposition TD, who vote against the government by default.
          What is the opposite of a lawmaker?

    I have forgotten to wear a mask a few times. Which is very diffrent from refusing. I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    Yours etc,

    Is no one else shocked that a TD is using public transport? Last time I saw that was when Shane Ross bragged on social media about using a bus to get to work as he was made Min for Transport. And that was some years ago

      80k a year doesn’t get you a nice georgian pile to keep the family in and so you can walk to work. and driving in dublin isn’t fun, especially if you love drinking
