watching the tv over the weekend and saw this going on all the time, tho one time I saw several photographers gesteruring for the newly elected TD to be lifted up so they could get the pic!Can I re-iterate the call for this nonsense to stop for future elections.
I find it very undignified, cringeworthy and just plain silly.
It could also have been a threat to some candidate's private bits.
Oh noez another "Paddy" reference. If you were Enda that would be a racist slur.I was hoping so much we'd see less of it this time round due to the magnitude of this particular electoral process but it looks like bog-standard Paddy is still content to make a show of us time after time. Every time you see it you have that sinking feeling we are all only too well aware of - 'I hope the English aren't watching this'. But alas they are.
Pathetic, backward, undignified, embarrassing Paddy.
So what?Oh noez another "Paddy" reference. If you were Enda that would be a racist slur.
+1 Spot on.I notice how Richard Boyd Barrett wasn't lifted to the air on the announcement of his election. It seemd very refined and propoer. Credit to him and supporters.
Sigh! Get a sense of humour man.So what?
But when black people refer to themselves as nggers it's cool is it?
Grow up will you...I'll continue to refer to myself and my country men in any way I see fit and politically correct thugs like you can't do a damn thing about it.
Apologies good Sir - I took your words up the wrong way. It's just that there is no shortage of keyboard warriors ready to scream wasist when ever something they don't like is said around here!Sigh! Get a sense of humour man.
