    So what do you think of Ivan's point that FG is playing into a situation where SF is becoming the de facto leader of the opposition by the personalisation of the debate (the Bruton/Spring repeat)?

    I'm sure it wouldn't take long to find an example of a much worse insult he has used against male TDs.

    O'Broin is an idiot who actually undermines actual sexism by playing the sexist card solely for the purpose of political convenience.

    Ivan's point?

    Is Mary Lou starting to grate on your nerves?

    That's the card Varadkar should play.

    Imagine what it would do to Colm O Gorman's head.

    Calling a female TD in the Dail "Ms. Piggy" is sexism. What happened between Varadakar and McDonald was an idiotic political ding dong. Nothing more, nothing less.

    As for Ivan's point about SF and the Bruton/Spring repeat, that wouldn't be a loss on FG at all. It would suit them very much to set things up in the Dail as FG V SF head to head.

    It's bollix. She's not even leader of her party.

    There were about 5 people in the Dail yesterday.

    Varadkar's personalised feuding with Mary Lou effectively creates the idea that SF is the leader of the opposition. Martin is very much a little shi-tzu by comparison and rarely seen. That's a bad thing for FF and he had better raise his profile quickly.

    Didn't read that thread.

    It's getting beyond ridiculous. Look at some of the ding dongs that happened regularly in the Dail between Gerry Adams and Enda Kenny. If one of them had to of been female, we would have the likes of Eoin O'Broin and posters on here shouting sexism from the rooftops. That's the kind of idiotic stage we're getting to now.
