Excellent, Norm.
Note to self: Must check if there's anything on the DVR in case the show goes pearshaped. :)

Mr Lehane seems to think that it is a bad idea to try to hold anyone accountable. "Someone to blame, someone to pillory..."

He's a barrister, of course. His only interest in those things is in making money out of them.

It's not only the gardai which need to be replaced; it's the whole rotten political system.

Lehane said that recommendations for the the reform of various institutions of government could be done simply by the civil service rather that spending millions on lawyers. But sure what’s public money? It’s not coming out of their own pockets.

Norm is you freezing.
Yup. I have the fire on ... and all the rads. Two pairs of trousers ... heavy winter socks ... a tee-shirt, a shirt, a pullover, and a fleece on top of that, and a hat to keep it all in and I'm barely able to type ... I think I've got frostbite ... I expect my fingers to fall off any moment now ... What's the compo? :roll:

Even if Vincent had the entire Chinese army appearing as guests on tonight's show, I still wouldn't watch him!

One Fianna Fail, one Fine Gael, one Sinn Fein and one independent.

The water discussion should be interesting. Will we see FF and FG cuddle up to each other? Is it true that a vote for Fianna Fail is now a vote for Fine Gael? Think about that, voters.

Should be some fireworks, with Catherine from Galway the calming influence.

Try Late Debate on radio for starters.
