Anyone else hear leaders questions today? It was an absolute disgrace the carry on there, TDs heckling and skitting while others were speaking, using language that is banned from the Dail, generally acting like morons. You wouldn't hear kids at it in school. If anyone from abroad saw it they'd think they were all p155ed. All this going on whilst they are getting paid their luxurious salaries and about to implement yet another crippling budget on the population of Ireland. How do they get away with so much in this country? I'm sick to my stomach after watching the exchange today, I can't find a link to a video or newspaper report on it, if I do I'll add or if someone else comes across it could they add it, thanks.

Who should be putting manners on these spoofers and generally making sure they adhere to some level of standards?

Makes a change there been enough of them actually there to make a noise . Amazes me the amount of empty seats in the chamber even during debates on important topics ( you could say most topics are of importance ) . Also please no ************************e about them listening in from their offices !

Kenny told us there would be Dail reform.

It was bad enough in the past, however,

Since Kenny and Barrett came to to power there,

Democracy there has become a disgrace.

I agree it was pathetic, especially when i had just heard Obama's victory speach which was mesmerising. Is there anyone in our Dail who can match him?

Lowering rent allowance
Bankers and ministerial pensions

And I can't remember the third thing because I was after getting too frustrated at that stage. I just remember cackling, heckling ,accusations of bullying and then someone calling someone else a gurrier. It's the skitting and laughing in the background whilst someone has the floor that really gets my goat. I mean in what other seemingly professional profession would you see that?

An absolute bunch of wasters, they should be ashamed of themselves. Laughing their heads off like a bunch of ************************************************s, getting paid big money to act like children.

We the people elected the Morons-we should learn and be more careful the next time--sadly I doubt it.

Mesmerising how? You mean in a jingoistic Kang and Kodos from the Simpsons kind of way? That's all it reminded me of.

I've never seen a single memorable speech by Obama, probably because he's never read a speech he wrote himself. He just regurgitates "what-the-people-wanna-hear" slogans conceived by a team of backroom writers.

I'd rather listen to the fools in the Dail screaming their heads off than that American styled "hopes and dreams" garbage.

God Bless America Everyone!

business as usual.

We should be, but we are too dumb to stand up.

The entire thing has become a superficial charade.

Publicity stunts, one upmanship, "public posture", grandstanding, etc... It is all one big act.

Meanwhile they make a mess of everything they touch. Everything.

And we can measure their incompetence.

It is directly propotional to the scale of the national debt.

But, they are an asset for the Anglo Bondholders, the nEU Empire, IBEC and ICTU.

They are a liability to the PAYE taxpayer.
