    Default Education Cuts - Did Gogarty threaten that Greens will walk?

    I wasn't paying attention to TV3 News at 5.30 today when Gogarty was being interviewed by, i think, Ursula.
    I thought I heard GoGo say "Ursula, read my lips, if the education cuts........, we will walk".
    I believe he was stating that if the proposed education cuts are unacceptable to the Greens, then they'll withdraw from Government.
    I've checked the TV3 website and googled left, right & centre but theres no mention of his ultimatum anywhere.
    Did he speak out of turn, again?
    I'm 99.99....% certain i heard what i've stated.
    Please confirm i'm not imagining it.

    Nope it was not Paul Gogarty TD speaking, but the Paul Gogarty who is looking for the Green Party nomination to run for Dublin Mayor next year, even though they have the same name, they are not the same person

    Seriously.

    They're not one in the same person right at the moment but they are some times.

    He was on the radio today...(newstalk maybe at lunchtime??) said it would be a walking matter alright for Him..!!...but only if the registration fee was above 2,000.
    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.

    It's not fair on Paul.

    Ursula is a wily reporter. She needs her soundbite, and she knows the best person to give her one is Paul. All she has to do is ask about the Greens walking and Paul will walk right into the trap.

    He's like some inebriated bull wearing red-tinted sunglasses.

    He seemed to say the same thing on radio this morning.

    Limit on registration fee increase to 2K and no cutback in teacher numbers as it would be a change from the programme for government which would have to be ratified by the party.

    Good option for an excuse to walk, as it touches base with the middle class greens and the college voters who may consider voting Green again

    So many lamp posts, so little rope.

    It was on Kiberd on Newstalk - gave the impression it was a walking issue, but when pushed he would vote with his party no matter what. Climbed down within 2 questions.
