So Fine Gael has called Fianna Fail's bluff. How are Fianna Fail going to handle this one without causing a general election? it's a pity there's no FG politician on tonight . It would have been fun.

The wealthy people laugh and smirk as they take more public money from the tin.

Justice Spokesman, too, so he's the right man to answer questions.

Didn't you read her piece in the ST yesterday?

Your favourite feminist journalist wants that abortion legislation to be introduced - now!

Justine simply cannot wait to see all those little babies being killed. No doubt VB will give her a free pass on that one!

In spite of "a breach of the confidence and supply" agreement with FG, FF will not withdraw their support from the government.

Well, well, well. I just didn't think they would be so blatant about it.

Oh I'm delighted. Can't happen soon enough.

The one thing that our planet definitely isn't short of is human beings.

Fianna Fail will "ask questions" of the government. Will they get "answers"? Probably, but not to the questions they actually asked. Tweedledum and Tweedledee bickering. No wonder VB laughed.

One tweet -

"How can an opposition be an opposition if it doesn't actually oppose."

I'd hate read to a book that VB might write; it would be nothing but footnotes.
