    Default #VINB Mon 12/11/2012: Children’s Referendum fallout


    John Downing, Journalist Irish Independent John Downing: Why shouldn't governments be let take sides in referendums? - Analysis, Opinion - Independent.ie

    Marie Louise O’Donnell, Senator nominated by An Taoiseach Marie-Louise O'Donnell - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It’s all over bar the shouting, and tonight I guess Vinny will be shouting loud enough about the ‘another fine mess’ the Government have made about the Referendum itself, the day they picked, underestimating the disquiet with a large unexpected ‘no’ vote. This should have been a slam dunk - the Referendum which would establish that the Government were fully in tune with the people and bring in a resounding ‘yes’ vote with a massive turnout. It didn’t turn out like that that all, and is now seen as another example where the Government - and the whole political establishment - have again shot themselves in their collective feet.

    If you best like the #VINB show when Vinny is at his worst, then this could be a good one …

    Also included in tonight‘s show is a discussion on Enda Kenny. “Enda Kenny. The Unlikely Taoiseach”– a political biography of Enda Kenny has just recently been published, authored by one of the panellists, John Downing.
    If I were a betting man I think the whole show tonight will be on Vinny’s favourite topic, and the Children’s referendum will take a back seat …

    2 Fine Gaelers and a journo. Not the best panel.

    I know Marie Louise is technically an 'Independent', but we all know she likes Enda.

    Feck it anyway. I'd have tuned in tonight if you hadn't mentioned Marie Louise O’Donnell.

    That's why FG doesn't get to form a Government that often. They fail to get the message ...

    We got the message, analyising it to death wont make any difference

    Saturday
    Apathy
    Belief that it would be passed
    People annoyed
    Supreme Court
    Lazy day
    I`m alright Jack

    Put percentages to each so

    O'Donnell is bound to like Kenny, she has been given a place at the TROUGH........
