Well, I was reading the other thread, and I thought this might be an antidote for that one, because...let's face it.
it's the easiest thing in the world to be spiteful and bitter, especially when you're targeting your political opponents.
I was also surprised at some of the most popular nominations on that thread, because although I can come across the angry man as much as most who populate these pages, I thought that some of the rationale was quite misplaced.
It would help if respondents entered into the spirit of the thing and not to come across as a servile Tory backbencher in the House of Commons when the late Thatcher was holding court.
For myself, Simon Coveney and Joe McHugh come across as decent human beings and even Richard Bruton, who for me would be a more formidable leader than the plant pot avoider.
I'm thinking more of the recent history here, so I would include most of the demoted greens, most of whom seemed to have honorable motives, although we'll argue until eternity about the policies.
Can't give an honourable mention, off the top of my head to anyone in the Labour movement, more's the pity (genuinely) and certainly not the PD's.
Of the independents, the ones who don't set my teeth on edge when they talk would be Shane Ross and Thomas Pringle.
So, p.ie'ers, here's a chance to cast off your negativity and say something nice about those who you politically disagree with.
Oh, and all the Sinn Féiners are just perfect....(yeah, right!)
