    Default Neanderthal Man alive and well on the Fine Gael benches

    The more you read it - the more you cringe

    Cougar-gate adds touch of roar to Dáil zoo | Irish Examiner

    Glad to see that intellectual engagement is as strong as ever in our national parliament

    The following quote would fit better in Killinaskully


    "We were just having a bit of fun, me and the fellas beside me"

    Yah, it's all great fun and a big laugh. I would have more respect for a giant mexican millipede than I have for Burton.

    She has a degree in commerce so they are confusing her with John Stuart Mill.

    He's obviously from the Ring school of higher thinking in FG.

    Ms Spence, who is on a fact-finding mission looking at the parliamentary committee system, was unruffled by the incident, telling the Irish Examiner: "I didn’t hear it," before adding diplomatically: "I find it difficult to understand everything I hear in Ireland."

    The same for the rest of us - particularly when it comes to the Bertie, Cowan, Lenihan, Coughlan + the Greens years!!

    Just read the article and I think the headline highlighting FG says more about the OP than anything else.

    Fine Gael (and Fianna Fail) again and again show their true colours, that they belong in the past. When it comes to elections people forget this and are blinded by the lies and deceptions. The vast majority of the Oireachtas are completely unworthy to be holding any sort of office. This sort of behaviour should result in dismissal without any excuses what so ever.

    The whole thing is pretty pathetic - including his schoolboy attitude in attempting to explain it away. I mean FFS:

    "Cougar came into my mind. I thought it was an exotic animal, like a tiger, I didn’t know it had a more sinister meaning.

    "Maybe I should have shouted "who’s the tiger?" because Noel O’Flynn was sitting there. The Tánaiste said she was wearing petrol blue so Esso came into my mind – tiger – cougar..." he explained.


    Clutching at straws there...if anything were to trump Bertie's 'I won it on the horses' defence, this would be a serious contender!
