    Yes, he's obviously a pro-choice left-liberal!

    He's no loss whatever happens to him. Dreary, reactionary yoke.

    Fianna fail have a front bench? And here was me thinking it was a lumpen dolly mix of lads you'd see down a country disco who just happened to be TDs.

    O'Cuiv was on about embracing Travellers the other day in response to FF "considering their policy on Travellers. So I doubt it....

    Ha... Didn't even make the nine o'clock news headlines...
    Oh how the mighty have fallen.
    You'll never go broke appealing to the lowest common denominator.

    Ha ha. Great news.
    Will this lead to a split in FF? Another headache for Martin. Not so long ago there was talk of Dev Og challenging for leadership of FF.
    Where does he go now?
    Great news in the fact that it has taken the spotlight off Leo cancelling Christmas on the HSE staff?
    Ravaging liberalism is Irelands new modern version of the intolerant RCC of the 1950's.

    Indeed. It's more a reflection on Martin's leadership of FF than on Ó Cuiv. Ó Cuiv has principles and original ideas. Martin does not.

    It just did - the newsreader asked Martina Whatshername was it a surprise and she actually burst out laughing. A rare moment of wit on Pravda News.

    Great news in that it's another nail in FF's coffin...

    I suspect MM was looking for a reason for some time to ditch him and that one presented itself.

    Is O'Cuiv so important that this spells the end or are you just running away with yourself?
