Heard about Hooks' loser' speech to FG. Now I'm not disputing FG's woeful record in getting elected-its probably the worst in Western Europe but I think Hook has sank any chance of being hired as a motivational speaker in the future. Perhaps he should market himself as a interrogator of some sort. You know break down your victim and then get them to confess. I thought the idea of a motivational speech was to make you feel ,well motivated? Not shite. I don't think FG need to be reminded that they have an inability to get elected. They should never have lost the 1997 election except for Quinn's cautiousness in Finance.
Never thought much of Hook except that he is a grossly paid curmudgeon . knowing little of rugby I cant comment on his Sports commentary but in terms of politics he can hardly be called insightful. Always felt getting in outside speakers is a complete waste of money and time anyway. If they make you feel better it quickly dissipates . Structured reform works, not paying personalities thousands. FG should bounce his cheque.
