    Perhaps FF could start by censoring out all members not in a fit state to appear on national TV, what a disgrace

    By cracking down on the internet, FF could limit people's free speech to criticise them.

    FF were reported to be incensed by an internet report that their TDs were cheering a possible election.

    A clampdown on fake news? From the party of odious spin and outright dishonesty? You're 'avin' a larf.

    Well meaning I'm sure, but it's absurd to think that one individual would have the ability to craft the right legislation, if legislation is even possible in such a complex domain. The consequences are potentially disastrous from getting it wrong. I imagine he'll be allowed take it so far, and his bill will die a death.

    The ST had a front page piece on Sunday that mentioned FF being enraged by the report that their TDs had cheered at the prospect of an imminent election. They blamed the FG press office.

    But several people have confirmed the story and named the TDs involved. I bet the barmen in Leinster Hse could tell a few stories.

    Biffo being carried out after a budget speech etc.
