    Default MoL vs the "Lyons Tea" of Irish politics.

    O'Leary saying it as he sees it!

    Mick is not happy with Leo!

    He labelled Mr Varadkar – who had spoken just minutes earlier – as the "Lyons Tea" of Irish politics. "All talk, more talk. . . but no bloody action."
    He doesn't like white elephants:

    "It's my first time in the National Convention Centre – the second big white elephant building in this country after the DAA's T2," he said. "For those of you who are visiting this country and want to realise why we are broke, you're sitting in it."
    Despite the arrogance of O'Leary, we have to admit that he does ferry millions of people into Ireland and is a driving force in tourism in the country!

    He has been labelled a money grabber by a money grabbing minister - anyone for paradox? 1000 jobs announced for Shannon. That one should be teased out. THese yo-yos are really clutching at straws...

    I can't stand the man but I admit he is dead on about the so called gathering. Just wait and he will be proved right with hotels, restaurants and bars all hiking their prices. Mind you, Ryanair will do the same too.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Christ, can you imagine if he ran the country - 10 euro charge for voting cards, Gardai selling lotto tickets, and that god awful poke-in-the-eye livery everywhere...

    he would give James Reilly.

    If your surname was Kerr, would you name a son Wayne? Just for a laugh like petunia

    Like calling your child Michael Hunt. Or that english rugby player Mike Cat.

    O'Leary is a breath of fresh air in this cow house. You can run him down all you like, and his marketing sucks, but he's still a role model for success, something the Irish have big issues with.

    He's right about the convention centre too. Remind me again just how much the broke taxpayer is shelling out to the real w@nkers of Treasury Holdings every year?

    Abortion is an act of violence. Violence demeans humanity, particularly violence against women and children.
