    Didn't see it. For some strange reason alot of middle aged women I know can't stand her. She irritates them. Don't ever hear the same repulsion towards her from men.

    She repulses everyone.VB made her look like a fool last night-no cuts and no new taxes, "buoyancy" will solve our debt crisis.

    S

    She was a disgrace, but then she will never be minister of Finance, when you think of it look how stupid Brian Lenihan and Richard Bruton have been since the night of the bank guarantee not a constructive idea from either of them. especially Bruton with his oxford degrees in economics,

    Maybe she is right. Everybody is to blame except FF , "we are all in this together". Perhaps Labour in new found role will come to their aid, although they did not back the guarantee like FG and SF !

    MaryLou:'We should have a wealth tax because there is still enormous wealth in this country'
    VB: 'Really? Where? Who has it?'
    ML: 'Numerous studies have shown that. . .'
    VB: 'Which studies?'
    ML: 'Various studies'
    VB: 'Ok, which studies?'
    ML: 'I'm not going into that now'
    VB: 'Because you don't know'
    ML: 'I do know'
    VB: 'Great. Which studies then?'

    . . . and on and on.

    Oh Dear. I almost felt sorry for her.

    She was right, Browne writes the same script every second week in the SBP.

    If she was poor, what were the other 3?

    Shes not hated by middle aged women -maybe middle class women, but that probably applies to all politicans.

    Great to see her getting exposure. She performed well on VB, puttlign him straight on a number of points. A wealth tax is a very good ideas. Perhaps the reason why some women do not like her is simple jealousy - without being partisan she is undoubtedly the new political talent of her generation to have emerged in recent years and is already Vice President of Sinn Féin (having held previously the post of National Chair).
