    Default Who is the worst Irish Politician and why?

    You might not like a politician because of their policies or say, their kow-towing to the Govt or Europe, because of something they said or because of their appearance even, maybe you think they are not doing anything at all.

    Who do you think is the worst we have right now and why?

    Broadly as I see it we have three types, the leadership who have the real power we are told, the whipped TDs of the government and then opposition and other invisibles such as the MEPs/independents/councillers. There is a wide range to choose from.

    Who do you think is the most ineffectual, the most inep, the worst by your standards and Why?

    Good God. Looking at that line up, leaves me stumped.

    With the exception, of Bilbo D Higgins, they are ALL hoors.

    And you left out Ahern, Harney, Gormless, Donkeylaffs. Plus a legion of Norn Iron politicians. And you have no Irish American politicians either.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Historically it has to be that deflector TV candidate in Donegal . Imagine an "intelligent electorate" electing somebody because they were going to lose access to foreign TV.

    It really is a tough choice and you could play whac a mole with this and keep changing your mind.

    For me, it would have to be Biffo, to think of the high offices he held and the shame he brought on the country along with his actions/lack of actions that have left the country in an awful state for decades to come.

    I was asked if we were allowed more than one choice. Quicker to just list the decent ones.

    No one forced it down his gullet, so the blame lies with him.

    Out of the current members of the Oireachtas, and out of those I'm familiar with, my vote goes to Mattie McGrath. I don't like his policies, his priorities, or what appears to me to be chronic and cynical opportunism.
    Repeal the 27th.
