So, how long until Oliver Callan appears on RTE again?
hmm, it is a bit weird listening to the weekly instalment of enda impersonations on callan's kicks, while later in the same evening, trying to take his political views seriously. At the end of the day he's the stereotypical short person that no one really takes seriously.
Yes , had a right go at FG and the last Government on the Late Late show on Friday night for their connections to Denis O'Brien , he mentioned O'Brien's alleged dodgy business past re the Moriarty tribunal findings etc but still somehow ends up winning loads of state contracts here once FG got back in to power.Has he upset the establishment again?
Did O Bribe tell you to post that nonsense? How much is he paying you?He's unquestionably a great mimic. He's hit and miss as a satirist. He's below average as a political commentator and it's a mistake on the part of RTE to have him a double up as a (semi) serious commentator.
He'd be pretty average on this web site and the only people he'd be upsetting is the RTE management at the thoughts of people switching channel.He's unquestionably a great mimic. He's hit and miss as a satirist. He's below average as a political commentator and it's a mistake on the part of RTE to have him a double up as a (semi) serious commentator.
It's not his fault he was in the RTE canteen when they came in with a giant butterfly net looking for "guests".He's unquestionably a great mimic. He's hit and miss as a satirist. He's below average as a political commentator and it's a mistake on the part of RTE to have him a double up as a (semi) seriousacm commentator.
then the Healy-Rae situation"Yeah I'm trying to write comedy about this but the reality is more bizarre, it's really hard to get your head around it; I mean I thought we had seen the worst we could possibly hear of politicians from this country, but it's almost two months now since the election - it went from the ridiculous, it's gone through the boring phase, now it's just astounding and it's extremely disrespectful I think to the general public I think
Lowry's standing in his local communityThe Healy-Rae's who we see as a bit of craic. In any other society, these guys have made millions from State, one minute, politically, they are against Irish Water the next minute, as businessmen they are receiving contracts for Irish water, all legitimately (as Tubs points out) but it's part of stradling the same thing and being on both sides of the fence at the same time.
.Look at Michael Lowry, the people of Tipperary have never read anything about the Moriarty Report, or worse, they have but they don't care
FF wrecked the country were in bed with property developers
Denis O'BrienFG come along for five years they hand the keys to our remaining assets to vulture funds
(Tubs interrupts);We need to talk about the elephant in the room who is, whether we like it or not, and people are scared to talk about Denis O'Brien. Standing there with Enda Kenny - Kenny said he accepted entirely the findings of the Moriarty Tribunal report so why then over the five years, does this government, during the duration of this government does Denis O'Brien get a massive write off from IBRC for purchasing Siteserv and Topaz
(Tubs interrupts again);'all legally and all fine' ; it is the connection ...
Tubs interrupts ...Topaz won a 20 million euro contract; you can look it up, the reason why people don't know th
is (contract from the Sate) is that Denis O'Brien controls one faction of the media and the other side of the media are too frightened to talk about it.
He's a great man for charity and everything else, but I'd prefer if he paid his taxes in Ireland.
