    Paschal Donohoe, FG TD Dublin Central Paschal Donohoe TD, Fine Gael Dublin Central,
    Cormac Lucey, Financial analyst: former advisor to Michael McDowell Cormac Lucey

    Noel Whelan, Political pundit; barrister Seismic political shifts – but to what extent? - RTÉ News

    Well Vinny is away tonight, so he leaves his second-in-command, Sam Smyth, in charge. The topic is a discussion on public disillusionment with the political system. The panel is a mixture of present day TDs and those interested in the political system.

    Well, Sam’s in charge tonight, with a reasonable panel, and for those who are fed-up with Vinny singing the same tune every night, it could be an interesting show …

    I hope none of them are going to express any surprise that people are well and truly p!ssed off with the body politic in this dump and that the last hope for many (FG) have pretty much blown the chance and the mandate they were given...

    Seeing FG stuff their cronies into every poxy quango going and carrying on just like the eFFing traitors before them is beyond depressing...

    Of course the error the eFFing traitors are making is to think people will turn back to them in any significant numbers...

    We need something radically different that is beholden to nobody and does what it says on the tin, and I don't mean a pointless lurch to the left towards gobsh!tes like Joe Higgins, Richard Boyd Barrett, Kieran Allen and the SF'ers... cos they're all full of sh!t too...

    Sad to think that a party that does what it says it will do could be regarded as 'radically different'...

    Would Samuel Smyth be part of any new party that McDool is pushing for. Imagine him along with likes of Dunphy, Fintan O Toole, Lord Sommerville & Ross, Cormac Lucy, Vincent Browne maybe. Just happened that they could not get off the starting blocks soon enough for 2011 GE.
