I love a film about David Davis (even his name is comical <sorry but you could not make it up>)

The man is a comic masterclass... this is how he carried out the first day of the most important negotiations the UK has ever had :

"Brexit secretary David Davis took part in less than an hour of discussions with the EU on the first day of substantive negotiations with Brussels before his early return to Westminster prompted suggestions that the government’s parliamentary weakness was impeding the talks. "

The Healy Rae dynasty. With a full-on 80s Dallas/Dynasty intro (i.e. each Healy Rae turning swiftly towards the camera smiling with drink in hand, interspersed with images of farming in Kerry, and a sweeping, booming orchestral score in the background. 'With guest stars Dick Spring and John O'Donoghue; and special guest star Martin Ferris).

Dr. Biffo Cowen, a tragi-comedy, perhaps in parallel with the serious stories of a suicide victim who took their life because of the downturn, that The EU apparently forced on top of us and of a working class person dying on a hospital waiting list waiting to be diagnosed with a serious illness.
Except again, absolutely nobody would believe such a thing could ever happen, well nobody outside Ireland.

Davies is at an ability level, where he would not look out of place in any Irish Government Cabinet!

Sean MacBride. Republican aristocracy, child soldier, prisoner, escapee, human rights lawyer, (failed) politician, diplomat, Catholic, peace campaigner, minor architect of European union, Amnesty International, Nobel prize. What a life, whatever you think of him.

You omitted to mention his Lenin Peace Prize (1975/76)!

I still recall the Sunday Telegraph's obituary of him, entitled "Death of an Evil Man"!

An action-film/James Bond style retelling of the Water charges debacle, of course from the Fine Gael Labour perspective. After the mysterious disappearance of Phil Hogan, Alan Kelly is tasked with "saving" the ungrateful Irish people from the evil menace of...Anti-Irish Water protesters! Kelly will be the typical Bond hero with Enda playing M(later revealed to be Redacted), the bond woman will be of course Joan Burton :rolleyes:

I call this masterpiece........ License to Bill

Carry on Ridiculous....

The front bench of Fine Gael or their counterparts in Fianna Fail could play the Carry on team..... wouldn't really matter too much....
