    Default George Hook is a Twat!

    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.

    Hmmm, surely FG are twats for inviting him? And apparently he did his little 'motivational' speech for free.

    Anyway, AFAIK Hook is a self-declared blueshirt. With friends like that etc

    If its true(about not charging) I feel slightly better about it. He will never work in that area(motivation) again -that's for sure.

    Really? But on his radio program he regularly claims to be a leftist. Indeed that forms the basis of the inane interaction he has every week with some American right-wing talkshow guy.
    The American wipes the floor with him every program, largely because Hook is unable to put forward a left/progressive analysis of any topic that comes up.

    I read that in the IT today, Im pretty sure. They made a joke along the lines of FG missing out on a potentially lucrative revenue stream - plenty of FFers would pay big money to tell the FG PP they were losers

    He's waffled on in the past about his mother telling him the story of Michael Collins when he was a baby on her knee, and how he's been a Gaeler ever since. I agree that he lacks a coherent analysis, but that is because he's a spoofer and little more. At least his rugby analysis is somewhat entertaining (though the crowbarring-in of Shakespearean references is getting very old), but on radio he's awful.

    The American is such a gobshite, it shouldn't take very much to flatten the ****************************** and his right-wing neo-liberalist horseshit. That Hook believes you should be all matey with such fatuous jerks might be down to too much rugger-bugger bar bonhomie.

    Hook is suing Johnny Sexton for defamation. What a joke our defamation laws are.

    A request for an apology, the withdrawal of the article, and a “proportionate donation” to the IRFU Charitable Trust has been rejected by The Irish Times. Sexton is understood to be consulting his solicitors.

    The broadcaster has alleged that comments made by Sexton in the interview meant that Hook does not believe what he writes and broadcasts, and has generated controversy over player welfare, including Sexton’s, to further his career.
