Joe is the twat. He is so distressed by his beloved FFer being at the bottom of barrel that he casting around to look for blame to throw and he chooses a parent looking after his child. And straight away the usual FF gombeens hop on this non issue. Given there are only 17% of the country left as FF voters how does he manage to get 60% of his calls pro FF.
Joe Duffy is slime, but this is un effing believable. We pay that man in excess of 100 grand a year. For that, the very least he can do is arrange childcare on a day when he and his party are doing something so incredibly serious. Un effing believable.
This is the nonsense that happens during a decline and fall. Lunacy brought on by decay. It's like we're syphilitic. Reminds me of the scene in Apocalypse Now where Kurtz comes across the lost battalion with no leaders, in total chaos and with a spooky air of surrealism about it. If you remember in the end he just gets back in the boat and quietly slides away, leaving the chaos behind. Sadly, not an option open to most of us, so we just have to sit in the bunker surrounded by shell-shocked monkeys like Gogarty and Brains.
