    One newly elected was being forcefully pushed up by a hand on his crotch.
    I am a floating voter. Without us, it's a dictatorship!

    Can I re-iterate the call for this nonsense to stop for future elections.

    I find it very undignified, cringeworthy and just plain silly.

    It could also have been a threat to some candidate's private bits.

    I'll leave you to guess what part of his anatomy my right hand would have been squeezing.

    watching the tv over the weekend and saw this going on all the time, tho one time I saw several photographers gesteruring for the newly elected TD to be lifted up so they could get the pic!

    I was hoping so much we'd see less of it this time round due to the magnitude of this particular electoral process but it looks like bog-standard Paddy is still content to make a show of us time after time. Every time you see it you have that sinking feeling we are all only too well aware of - 'I hope the English aren't watching this'. But alas they are.

    Pathetic, backward, undignified, embarrassing Paddy.

    A lot like the knuckle-dragging boggers running on to the Croke Park pitch with their plastic bags of pop and hang sangiches despite the safety pleas from the authorities. Pathetic.
    Where, after all, is the Muslim outrage at these events? As their ancient, deeply civilized culture of love, art and philosophical reflection is hijacked by paranoiacs, racists, liars, male supremacists, tyrants, fanatics and violence junkies, why are they not screaming? Salman Rushdie (2002)

    The English method of polite applause is much more dignified......apart the monster raving loony party candidate in the background!

    Oh noez another "Paddy" reference. If you were Enda that would be a racist slur.
    What amused me was the discomfort on the face of TDs being bounced up and down. Otherwise let them at it. The sweaty bodies under the new TDs were the ones who put the work in.
