Just listening to the Last Word.
Eamon Coughlan and Eamon Moloney (Lab)
Debating todays session
John Delaney (FAI )laid the consequences of sponsorship removal on the line as he saw them.
Coughlan made a very valid observation about Nestle being forced to remove sponsorship of children's athletics.
As a consequence there has been no sponsorship since.
Matt Cooper made the same point about the removal of tobacco sponsorship from snooker.
Moloney spluttered and couldn't respond to either point.
That Moloney character really struck me as someone who doesn't listen to anyone.
A microcosm of the puritian priggish streak is developing in the current body politic.
Loads of prohibition and censorship planned, and to hell with peoples responsibility to be responsible for themselves and their own actions.
Be seen to do something for the idiot electorates benefit.
And nothing else
