Then it’s into the panel discussion and analysis on this and the other political event’s of the day:
Noirin Hegarty, Journalist and guest #VINB presenter Social Media & Journalism Seminar - Noirin Hegarty, Editor, independent.ie - YouTube
Catherine Murphy, Independent TD Kildare North Catherine Murphy TD | Independent TD for Kildare North
Willie O‘Dea, FF TD Limerick City Willie O'Dea | Working for You

Should be an interesting show tonight. The Interview should be good knowing Vinny’s past performances, … and the panel discussion, well … who knows maybe there will be a few foot in mouth moments …

It's time for these incompetent buffoons to step aside. They are clearly incapable of continuing the good work to recovery started by Fianna Fáil. We need a general election.

As if a normal length whinge wouldn't be long enough, he's extending it.

I hope in the extended whinge he's asked why Labour fell over themselves to protect the CPA and payments to those who have been on the dole for life.

Keaveney should have been delighted that childrens allowances weren`t cut to €100 because that is the targeted figure per memorandum of agreement I believe.

Come on you boys in blue...............reduce income tax.

If you work you get REWARDED,

Great op norm and early !

There's a nice comparison between keavneys principled stand and odea who wouldn't budge a couple of years ago.

Loved Thomas Byrnes line last night about the electorate never forgiving labour.

These ff boys don't do irony.

As someone on the radio said(think it was Damien Kiberd)...there's no one better than FF to give advice to labour on how to turn a large party into a small one.... :)

Thomas Byrne epitomises the word DELUDED as much as anyone bar maybe Daragh O`Brien.

What’s the betting he shows the clip of Gilmore promising not to cut children’s allowances? I would say 1/10.

Well done VB - I guess we are going to get loads of CK for the next while. He is probably the most articulate of the Labour rebels but we well soon tire of him.

Hope VB asks Keaveney if he would support deep cuts in public sector pay in order to save respire allowances for carers. He won't.
