It's been a bad few days for the comrades of People Before Profit. Two of their Dublin councillors were widely condemned for their tweets expressing tacit understanding for the criminal gang who looted and demolished a supermarket in Tallaght. Or at least showed an equivocal attitude towards an act that has left vulnerable elderly residents without a nearby grocery shop.
The reaction to those tweets is nothing, however, compared to the widespread derision faced by Brid Smith TD for her sniping remarks about a jacket worn by Leo Varadkar. See below. This, of course, follows on from the tweet on Christmas Day from Joan Collins TD that was laden with seasonal spite towards political opponents.
Perhaps the comrades need to step outside the bubble they've constructed around themselves in which only their audience of fawning supporters aren't blocked?
