    Default Who is the Senator that Fionnan Sheehan would not name on Pat Kenny?

    Earlier on Today with Pat Kenny Fionnan Sheehan referred to a Senator who apparantly displayed an amazing amount of ignorance about our present economic state by not even knowing that it was the EU Commission that was demanding that we meet the 3% of GDP deficit target by 2014.

    Fionnan Sheehan said he would not name the Senator to save him/her the embarrassment but that the exchange was on the Seanad record yesterday. When asked by Pat as to what panel the Senator was elected on he stated the Education Panel.

    There are 5 members of the Education and Cultural Panel - 3FF, 1FG and 1Labour.

    So who was it?

    One of the FF's would be my guess. the other 2 have a relatively high profile and would expect them to be more up to speed.
    Economic Left/Right: -6.00
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.10

    I am willing to concede the four-year programme mentioned by the Minister and announced by the Government which is intended to be published in November could offer us a very useful opportunity to debate, perhaps in this House, the various options facing the country.

    Having read more of the debate, neither Paschal Donohue or Fiona O'Malley cover themselves in glory.

    White came across as thinking the Four Year Plan was a govt idea, not a Commission one.

    it may have been Twomey !
    You'd think Kenny committed Treason and brought in IMF. Cowen had all in stitches in Galway at 3.30a.m.but he was "not impaired" -DD Power. FF=Publican páirtí an IMF.
