He's really spoiled for choice, isn't he?

He could be on the show every night for the next decade and he still wouldn't have run out of ammo!


From the look of Vincenzo's hanging jury tonight, I reckon that he'll end up being the one defending poor Noreen!

Thought that FF wants O'Sullivan to resign? Perhps it has gotten to the stage that FF and FG are indistinguishable?

Expect Byrne to be asked why FF don't support votes of no confidence in O'Sullivan when they are, themselves, asking for her to be removed. Expect no answer.

He'll give the exact same answer that Jim O'Callaghan gave on Morning Ireland last Thursday and on almost every RTE news program over the weekend.

That you can't understand it doesn't make it a "no answer".

When I say "no answer", I mean "no answer." If that "answer" you are talking about means that only the government can remove her, then that is no answer. Nobody asked Fianna Fail to remove her, so giving an answer to a question which wasn't asked is, effectively, no answer.

Ah, Thomas Byrne.

The government must give a reason why the commissioner is being removed and and an overwhelming vote in the Dail to have this done is not sufficient reason.

That is not a reason why his party cannot just support the motion anyway, and leave it up to the government to find a reason to do the act. Or not, as the case may be.

A valiant attempt to deflect a very simple answer that you just don't like hearing!

The law really is quite clear. The Government controls the situation, Fianna Fáil are talking out of both sides of their mouths.
11.— (1) Subject to section 12 , a person who holds the office of Garda Commissioner, Deputy Garda Commissioner or Assistant Garda Commissioner may be removed from office by the Government but only for stated reasons, including because—
(a) the person has failed to perform the functions of the office with due diligence and effectiveness or, in the case of the Garda Commissioner, has failed to have regard to any of the matters specified in section 26 (2),
(b) the person has engaged in conduct that brings discredit on the office or that may prejudice the proper performance of the functions of the office, or
(c) the person’s removal from office would, in the Government’s opinion, be in the best interests of the Garda Síochána.
(2) On notifying under section 12 (1) a person who holds the office of Garda Commissioner or Deputy Garda Commissioner that the Government intends to consider removing him or her from office, the Government may immediately suspend the person from duty.
(3) The suspension from duty continues until the Government makes a decision in relation to the matter under consideration, but only if there is no undue delay in taking steps under section 12 or in making that decision.
