Pat Carey and Alex White are on this week's programme, along with Fionan Sheehan

Is Fionan Sheehan the most smuggest, know it all journalist in Irish journalism?

He said the abolition of the Gaeltacht ministry will ONLY save a quarter of a billion and basically brushed the idea aside.

No love lost between Fionnan and Alex White - it got heated there for a moment.

"On each occasion that he’s imposed cuts, Mr. Lenihan has turned first to the old, the sick, the poor and public sector workers. Why would we think the next budget will be any different?"
Surprised it was read out. What was the reaction from our resident FF hack?

It's sickening to hear the relish for upping the DIRT on old people. Have we forgotten that the reason we have a different regime for people in that age group is to encourage them to put their savings into banks because in the past there had been a lot of robberies of old people who kept their money in the home?

I'm surprised that no-one has mentioned Karl Whelan, one of the original 46 Economists who got it absolutely right about the "Banking Strategy", was also on.

These were the very 46 which Mr Sheehan attacked on RTE Pravda as I reported at the time http://www.politics.ie/economy/99505-kick-46-fionan-sheehan.html.

I'm sure Karl was too polite to mention this to Mr. Sheehan, I hope.

How Sheehan's blatant FF bias goes on unquestioned by RTE is a disgrace.

Fair play to White for challenging him on it.

Why does he remind me of this guy when the topic of FF comes up? :)

I though Alex White was too restrained when dealing with the oik. I was hoping he'd throw in something that would set off the short tempered copper top.

Himself and Noel Whelan should carry "Fianna Fail Bulls hit" logos under their names.

Carey was asked to reply to the front page story re- the irish mail about cowens knowledge about the state of anglo. Carey stated that it was all lies. If it is all lies why dont they sue the irish mail? The indo covered the same story.
