The media really are too deferential to the government. I accept that the office of Taoiseach deserves respect even if the current holder of it doesn't but it's not too much to expect of him to to a live interview.
I think they are deferential to the office more the people but I agree they need to be asking harder questions and calling it when they are not answered.

It is truly appalling that he thinks that he can get away with this.
It is yet another sign of how terrible politics is in Ireland.
We all deserve respect ,except when we don't merit it.
There cannot be another country in western Europe or the U.S.A., where a head of state, would not be compelled ,to address the Nation at this time.
Shameful ! !

Biffo on Week in Politics

Biffo's demeanour at the press conference was abject. He seemed detached, semi-coherent. All eyes on the podium avoided him. Our Finance negotiator was also brusque/surly. We are up the creek.

I think Cowen is on on his own.
What would you expect from that craven sack of ************************, no ball or backbone. Just look at the traitors deal that he and his criminal syndicate have wrought.
This deal stymies any chance of govt, sponsered job creation and for the sake of the country must be rejected or radically altered.

Wow.

That is one for the archives.

It is also one that will be all over YouTube within an hour.

He (even though pre-recorded and scripted) will make an absolute balls of it.

The "markets" will push Irish 10yr to 12% by the end of the week if they are not suffering "Irrational Exuberance".

Does it really matter what he says or does. He will be long gone from office. Our wealth will never recover. Our debt will never be extinguished. Our health service will never recover.

Actually hammer it could if we learn something from this and make some fundamental changes to the way we are governed. It's a big IF I know but all we can hope to get out of this mess.

Brian, can we afford the interest rates??

Brian will not answer the question and after about ten whole minutes of spoofing I think we will deduce the answer is no.

The entire Irish nation is stupid according to someone who doesn't know the difference between accept and except.

We must be ************************************ or you must be full of it.
