The chattering classes in the Leinster House restaurant had their Cashel Blue cheese and crackers with Chianti afters ruined last night as 2 independent deputies got tired and emotional in full view.

Seems that Lord Ross called Mattie McGrath a Ballocks and shouted that he blocked everything I phucking do (ecept of course deliver an all weather hockey pitch to Wesley). Michael Collins was also involved while waiting in the wings to slug it out with the Min for Trans and Sport was junior minister Joe McHugh.

Eamon Dunphy is a close political buddy of Ross who has also recognised the value of the B word with John Waters. Has it become all about making the issue the person and not about solving matters any more?

Ross may have a point about McGrath while Waters is spot on about Dunphy but is it a coincidence that both guys are using expletives to deflect from their failings?

Mc Grath must be doing something right then.
I suppose Ross, the posh p r i c k, thinks everyone should just roll over and let him do what he wants.

Doubtful. Most likely it was always the way but our very poor journalists now think this is upon what should be reported.

Mattie McGrath is a cretin and an embarrassment, the man is incapable of stringing together a coherent sentence.

The first time I heard him talking I though it was a comedian imitating a typical parish pump politician.

McGrath is a b--cks coated b--cks with b--cks filling.

Only an actual b--cks serves a purpose.

Why did a newspaper editor think this was worth publishing?

McGrath and Lord Ross are both an embarrassment to Irish politics.

Thats because you are a condescending prat that looks down on people like Mc Grath.
Check out his vote. He is a well liked and respected man in Tipp.

Mc Grath is head and shoulders above Lowry.
Kelly has done some good work during this Dail so far.

Know your place, peasant...

Or I'll be forced to remove my reading glasses and look down at you....

Your anti-rural snobbery is showing; if it's not him it's the people of Roscommon, the Healy-Raes, or 90 year-old farmers up a mountain you're moaning about.

McGrath is a university graduate.
