How does Vinny do it? After last night’s three-hour marathon he’s back smiling in studio. Same theme - those promissory notes. And not only has he got a Labour TD on, but a Minister to boot. Let’s hope he does.

So, how good a deal is it for us? Have we now turned that corner? Are things on the up and up? Or are there a few sneakey things in the deal that we don’t know yet? Let’s hope Vinny can provide some answers as they debate the €60 billion FF-FG-Lab kindergarten debt deal.

Not quite the popcorn night of last night, but should be an entertaining watch … [usual time 23:00 tonight].

Pat Rabbitte? His behavior last night and today was disgraceful. Lets the side down.

Haha Rabbitte turns up tonight thinking he has a victory for the sheep. Shameful stuff but what else have we come to expect from our political scum class.

Looking forward to Pat tonight. Above all, today was a victory for pragmatists, and no greater pragmatist than Pat. I expect one of his more rousing performances is in store.

They're confiscated now after Fionnan spent the whole show tweeting. Vinny got annoyed with him and had to tell him to stop.
Well make sure that the "green Room" is also locked down, don't want a repeat performance of last night.

For Once Vincent Browne will be unable to attack one single thing the government has done today, perhaps he may even congratulate them.
I dunno, the TD's on the government benches last night were most unparliamentary in their behavior. And bulldozing a Bill through without proper consideration leaves many very uneasy.

Now where have all the experts gone? I was looking forward to Vinny's so-called economic experts who have spoofed so much over the year -now there in hide.
What a pity - but vinny is still there - will he be man or mouse?
