I see the father ted creator has launched an attack on the Late Late Show presenter through his ongoing blog called "why,thats delightful".
He described his own experience of being interviewed by Pat stating that "Pat spoke to me,Arthur and the Father Ted cast,and I have never seen an interviewer so dependent on his list of questions,so lost when confronted by an answer he wasn't expecting,so incapable of turning an interview into a conversation"
Linehan went a step futher saying that "Pat Kenny is another reason I'm leaving Ireland"
R.T.E was the subject of his main attack when the writer said "My point is more to do with R.T.E,and how willing they are to look like amateurs by having an incapable,inept presenter in charge of their biggest ship.
