    Default The Week in Politics back tonight

    Could be an interesting one.

    The politicians have been busy over their extended summer holiday.

    We have had Dempsey doing a good JOD impression with the jet, Cowen trying to honour the late Alex Higgins (RIP) with a few good sessions, FF Senior Ministers fibbing about hoarse throats and sinuses and tiredness.

    Not to mention Grealish and Mattie saying "save money by all means but not in my back yard", and Lenihan beating his improving economy drum, while the figures and the bond markets, and especially the ever increasing unemployed, suggest otherwise.
    We have turned the corner.I commend this Budget to the House. Brian Lenihan, 9 December 2009

    Forgive my ignorance, but how many TDs would need to pull away from the Fianna Fail fold for an election to be imminent?

    There is a God. BTW European Parliament Report back too at 0.50. Very important given where 80% of our legislation comes from.

    Don't forget Simon Coveney single handedly brought about an all time low in Irish Politics...

    Lower then anything that went on before us.

    Brilliant, pity 'week in politics' is on so late... i will stay up to see it anyway......
    I think political tv programmes should be on earlier in the evening as younger people may become more engaged and have an input/interest in the political system...and make good choices when they get to the ballot box...

    When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity.

    Dear oh dear the young people of today. Back when I was that age we weren't staying in watching political programs, we were out drinking and taking drugs and having lots of sex....
