Typical of our useless media to have been telling us how wonderful he is for the last two years while as per usual the foreign media called it like it is from way earlier. Hope he becomes the next leader of FF and then loses his seat. Two handy cut out and keep pieces for the canvass.
:p

There is very little coverage of this domestically. If he'd been first we would never have heard the end of it. Another example of "pulling on the green jersey"

We are indeed. How much is he paid again? I hope it's lower than the 18 that scored above him.

Some record for his "service" (Lenihan term) to the people. But here of course he is a grand fella, well educated some say, and shure the poor man is in poor health. Wonder what Mama Rourke will say now - probably dismiss it with "will ya be going away with yer auld blather"

Well We know Brian and Marys record which amounts to zilch of any use.
Conor, I think comes in even below this if that is possible,or does somebody
have any record of his contributions to his government department.

In fairness to Conor he was scheduled as Minister for Science to launch a book which dismisses one of science’s greatest theories – luckily for him someone figured it out just in time. That to my knowledge is his contribution thus far.

What's the betting that RTÉ decide to change that headline on their website before the day is out?

What's most upsetting about this is the fact the worst MfF in Europe is about to frame the toughest budget in Irish history with his usual panache and flair....not to mention dogged conservatism and sense of denial.

Wasn't mentioned on the New at One, not sure about PK, didn't hear most of it.

(in fairness, they don't have to mention everything that appears in the international press relating to Ireland)
