    Tonight Vinny talks to Peter and Luke to get an outsiders perspective on Ireland’s Presidency of the European Council and the prospects of a bank debt deal.

    They’ll be joined by:

    Andy Storey, School of Politics & Int Relations UCD UCD Dublin | Research | Politics & Int Relations
    Brigid Laffan, Principal, UCD College of Human Sciences UCD President's Office: Professor Brigid Laffan

    Today the Government said it is to focus on Anglo deal during Ireland's EU presidency

    So a good interesting show, full of uplighting discussion, is on the cards for tonight.

    Just how long is that piece of string, Mr Van Rompuy?

    No doubt he'll be horrified and outraged by it...

    And if you're quick, you can catch John Waters on Midweek beforehand.

    And he's talking about the great buzz of The Gathering, and there's no 'down side'..

    Looks like most of the stuff in Dublin is gonna be 'Informal'...

    Looks like a good old party for them all and not much else...

    Or does 'Informal' mean something different in EU speak...?

    Norm, your OP's are getting to be more interesting than the subsequent shows.

    More informative, certainly!!

    Apparently...I could watch "Along came Polly" INSTANTLY if I had Netflicks.....!!
    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.
