Between Stephen and the latest from Barry Cowen, there seems to be currently a competition in Fianna Fáil for **** ups.

Very easy to confuse the two isn't it Stephen?

I saw Stephen Donnelly on something the other night... Pat Kenny was it? Can't remember...

I used to have time for what he'd be saying but not since he went home to the eFFing traitors...

Big mistake by him imo... because the eFFing traitors haven't changed at all... the evidence of which has been crystal clear to see throughout the water omnishambles...

You'd think the way the eFFers go on that they'd never been in favour of water charges whereas it was they who nurtured the idea from the start...

Yes, it was the Pat Kenny show on TV3 ( first time I've seen it and it was good, I thought)

I thought Donnelly was unusually honest for a politician in acknowledging to Richard Bruton that FG had lowered unemployment significantly and had pulled the country back from the brink, etc...

He said that they should be commended for that, BUT then he went on to say that their policies were right-wing and not focused on the citizens who had been left behind, or on the forgotten rural folk ( Michael Healy Ray was on giving out about lack of rural broadband.)

But it was so unusual to hear a politician acknowledging the good things their opponent had done....refreshing really

However, there was something inauthentic-sounding in Donnelly's "right-wing" slur at FG---as if he had been told by his FF masters to say that. He was easily torn apart on the issue by the right-leaning Pat Kenny and Richard Bruton.

Donnelly looked and sounded uncomfortable toeing the FF line....

But no doubt he'll get better at it..

As an SD voter am obviously disappointed that he left and ended up joining FF. Still he much to offer and has something different to add which is welcome considering much of the dross in the Dail.

Exactly that.
It sounded so inauthentic. Like he had learned it off beforehand.
Another thing, he kept putting his hand toward the audience and saying something like " as the members of our audience said"
In a deferential tone, something so false about the whole performance.

Fncking spoofer. Has he already started the FF opposition-in-government thing where FF criticise their own policies, so as to be able to run with the hare and hunt with the hounds.

It's uncomfortable watching the party machine doing its slow, grinding, ruthless work.

Donnelly has to walk the walk. That's how it is in politics unfortunately. Sad.

You could see flashes of a better self--.a trace of innocence, naïveté, perhaps...the occasional brutally honest statement that was not straight from the party playbook and was not designed to further the party's interests....

But then it was back to business and more of the oul' learned-off, clichéd blather

But it did not sit well with him. He's not totally trained-in yet..
