    Default Interesting debate between Gay Mitchell and Paul Murphy in the Parliament today

    I don't think I've every seen two Irish MEPs go at eachother in the parliament. Usually the FG, FF and Lab MEPs (and "independent" Marian Harkin) are all singing off the same hymn sheet. Nice to see a bit of a shake up

    Such an angry chap, and to think that a handful of people voted for him to become head of state!

    Decent joke there harsh....................................cos no one at all voted for Murph.
    The truth of an idea is not a stagnant property inherent in it. Truth happens to an idea. It becomes true, is made true by events.

    Thank Skyfairies everywhere (or nowhere - depending on your outlook) that the Irish people had the good sense to see right through Gay Mitchell.

    Now, if only the people of Dublin could do the same.

    Very few voted for one, nobody voted for the other but lets not kid ourselves 84,000 plus expenses is the only number that matters

    For all his flaws, Mitchell is excellent when he speaks on the hypocrisy of "socialism". He tore poor Nessa Childers to shreds in a debate against her on the "EU Parliament Report" on RTE a couple of weeks ago.

    I read a piece somewhere once where he said that his views on socialism were formed in his youth, when the richest person in his (very poor) neighbourhood was the local "socialist" Labour party TD.

    Sure Gay Mitchell, for all his rantings on socialism, is a socialist himself. Not the good kind you understand - the kind that socialises billions upon billions of gambling losses and then pontificates about the need for a decreasing pool of working people to pay for him and them.

    He needs to get a life and get real. I've had more than enough of my fill of Irish politicans who speak out of both sides of their mouths.
