Very very interesting story in the Irish Times, seems Deputy O'Connellis deeply concerned over the sharp increase of jobs for the boys (junior ministry positions) announced some weeks ago.

Directly attacking her great leader (unusual for this lady), it's an odd move considering her own record in appointing her sister as her parliamtary assistant.

Fine Gael TD criticises Enda Kenny for creating

"I didn’t see the need for the extra junior Ministers myself and was deeply suspicious as to why they were created,” she told presenter Hugh Linehan. With all of those positions comes an extra burden to the State - €30,000 in the case of junior ministers. It’s not a charitable gig you put yourself out for.”

Is the heave is beginning? This lady knew exactly what she was saying ... And with the shinner bashing over the last week, I suspect an election isn't too far off ...

Raging she didn't get a gig. Simple enough, gender doesn't matter really. Miaow.

The King Lear effect. The village idiot is dead meat as regards the next GE so the powerplays are beginning early.

Does she want to vote against the Government or relax the no smoking ban?

Are all new TDs a bit dim?

Expect back-peddling and 'quoted out of context/poor choice of words' tomorrow

It is the Oirish Toimes. Does anyone, apart from the village idiot and his emulators in FG, still read that comic? :)

If another election is around the corner, FG need to dump the plank within the next 2 months.

certainly the whiff of hypocrisy from the fragarent Kate on this specific issue.
Still she gave the story to the Isis Times, not to the putative brother in law.

I don't suppose the Inbetweener Harris will do anything to address the cost of drugs & the margins that pharmacies such as those owned Fragarent Kate & the FFer from Kerry earn. This was an issue the Troika raised.

According to reports, there was a possible walkout by the Independents in the offing if the village idiot Kenny had nominated the traitor John Bruton to a banking quango job.

Serious increase in shinner related stories this week, that, coupled with Lord Ross actually making a real go at demanding a New Politics in cabinet would make one wonder if there's a possibility that it's pretty shakey out there.

And Enda won't be leading FG into the next election (unfortunately).

Deputy O'Connell is minding her own ass too.

And this place ignored that story. Ross also advertised his parliamentary assistant position on PublicJobs.ie which is a first and seems that that IBRC commission of inquiry is to be strengthened through legislation ... FG won't stand for it I suspect ...

Yerra, why not? She seems telegenic, and may not need to be surrounded by minders in case she talks to someone. That in politics is a start.

Deserves its own thread.

For a man who doesn't believe in our state Brutal does very well out of state jobs & pensions.

The irony is that Ross' political career started after his dad represented the unionist vote at TCD.

Brutal is a cattle farmer & a polemicist. He is not a banker & apparently turned an interview by the editor of the FT into an afternoon long drinking session.

Bula boss Ross!

Two posters refer to this female as "fragrant".

That would never be said about a male.

Not any more. Ger12 has removed the offending adjective. Fair play.

Is there a thread on this site somewhere reproducing a claim that 50% of the misogynistic passremarkability on the Internet is authored by female web surfers?

God help the innocent people who expected Kenny to lead us away from the rotten years
of Haughey and Bertie,In fairness the the electorate had nowhere else to turn,however,
nobody expected he was going to outdo Fianna Fail with arrogance and cronyism..
Apart from that the way the disabled and the mentally ill were treated was an insult to
human dignity itself, Fine Gael lost a third of its seats recently, probably lose another
third if an election were held now,The party has lost all its own dignity by its cladstine
relationship with Fianna Fail,

The standard of Fine Gael was well exposed in the last few weeks alone,giving jobs in the senate
to rejects and cronies,Big banking job for John Bruton as if the trough had not fattened him enough
already,thankfully Shane Ross but a stop to that, for a while anyway.
