Mattie McGrath, an "ex" FF-er like the Healy Rae things, is more beast than man


He likes to be rural folksy and present himself as an Irish redneck rebel (e.g. being pro rural drink driving)

He indubitably espouses gendered socially conservative views - so the sexist label fits

McGrath considers legal action against Ruth Coppinger
Independent TD Mattie McGrath has instructed his lawyers to consider legal action against Anti-Austerity Alliance TD Ruth Coppinger.
...she had labelled Mr McGrath “a sexist, backward man with an inordinate interest in women’s bodies”.
Ms Coppinger repeated the claims on the radio programme, but did so without the protection of Dáil privilege.
...Speaking to The Irish Times, Mr McGrath said her comments were defamatory and needed to be challenged.
What say ye ?

I'm no fan of Mattie McGrath but Coppinger has crossed a line there and should retract.

I don't listen to Miss Coppinger. Life is too short to waste it on people who are full of hate.

McGrath is a politician to his very fingertips but he's not the worst of them by any means and unless he has a hidden dark side Coppingers comments are laughable.

Take her for every penny she never made.

Being a senseless political mouth is all very well, but open it in the wrong way in the wrong place and you deserve to pay a price.

No fan of Mattie but since it is Coppinger, undoubtedly the most stupid TD in Dail Eireann I hope he teaches her a lesson.

The above is more of the out of touch liberal Political bull************************ that is taken over our Country. Mattie McGrath is a genuine hard working politician and his constituents reward him for his efforts. There is plenty of other Politicians that Coppinger could degenerate, but she chooses an individual who speaks his mind because it is an easy attack. The below link is an example of Politicians doing ************************ all, while they make fun of a TD who is actually doing some work for his constituents.

You are spot on and most of the media choose to ignore her stupidity. The height of her stupidity was when she called for Dell to be nationalized on a RTE current affairs program, and the host and Political panel actually left her get away with such a call.

Does the Socialist Party really want to nationalise Dell?

Ruth Coppinger makes Mattie McGrath look like Edmund Burke.

She's like a Danny Healy-Rae turned inside out.

McGrath may well run round 'grabbing pussy' or condone others doing it, but I have seen no other suggestion or proof that he does so. Have you?

A TD actually earning his money, no wonder he is hated so much.

And Coppinger is a hate filled harpy who worships mass murderers like Lenin and Trotsky.

Her constant fantasies about sexism are proof that women should not be in politics but should be at home engaging in such feminine pursuits as embroidery, dieting, and watching shows about hospitals.

Let's not get carried away here...

Mattie is a parish pump, pothole fixer who uses the Dáil to turn himself into a County Councillor on steroids. He is completely disinterested in national politics, and the responsibilities of a legislator, as he sees it as a distraction to him in is job of making sure there is a medical card for everyone in the audience.

Mattie gets stuff done on the ground which is why he is re-elected. One can call in parish pump politics but if you are the end of your tether because of unresponsive bureaucrats and a sclerotic public sector Mattie may be all you have left.
