    Default Where is Shane Ross?

    Deputy Ross is not a shrinking violet. He craves attention, loves the spotlight and puts himself out in the media whenever he can.

    However, for the last 24 hours, at a time when an issue very close to his heart has been at the centre of national debate, he appears to have lost his voice. Most unlike Deputy Ross.

    On Wednesday evening Deputy Ross tweeted "Nation WILL be humiliated before chimes of midnight".

    Can he really not bring himself to admit that maybe the Govt got a good deal. Can he not accept that he may have been wrong as he was when he said that Seanie should be made Governor of the Central Bank or that the accounts of Irish Nationwide indicated laudable management practices?

    Has Deputy Ross nothing to say for a change?

    He's brought his bandwagon in for a service.

    I'll say it again, if Ross ends up having to talk about the deficit, instead of the banks, then politically he's screwed. The banks, and the bank debts, are an amazingly rewarding political bogeyman. But taxes, public sector pay and social welfare are a minefield.

    I'm suprised he's not doing like McWilliams and claiming this deal is the worse thing ever, but then give him time

    Why should he be humble for voting Against deferring the debts incurred by his generation onto his grandchildren's generation?

    This is a very bad, Immoral deal.

    both are in the pockets of Anglo Irish Bank crony Denis O'Brien. Let's all hope Denis O'Brien will pay back his debt to the Irish taxpayer.
