Deputy Ross is not a shrinking violet. He craves attention, loves the spotlight and puts himself out in the media whenever he can.

However, for the last 24 hours, at a time when an issue very close to his heart has been at the centre of national debate, he appears to have lost his voice. Most unlike Deputy Ross.

On Wednesday evening Deputy Ross tweeted "Nation WILL be humiliated before chimes of midnight".

Can he really not bring himself to admit that maybe the Govt got a good deal. Can he not accept that he may have been wrong as he was when he said that Seanie should be made Governor of the Central Bank or that the accounts of Irish Nationwide indicated laudable management practices?

Has Deputy Ross nothing to say for a change?

I'll say it again, if Ross ends up having to talk about the deficit, instead of the banks, then politically he's screwed. The banks, and the bank debts, are an amazingly rewarding political bogeyman. But taxes, public sector pay and social welfare are a minefield.

I'm suprised he's not doing like McWilliams and claiming this deal is the worse thing ever, but then give him time

both are in the pockets of Anglo Irish Bank crony Denis O'Brien. Let's all hope Denis O'Brien will pay back his debt to the Irish taxpayer.

Why should he be humble for voting Against deferring the debts incurred by his generation onto his grandchildren's generation?

This is a very bad, Immoral deal.
Still bleating about debt write off.

Still in cloud cuckoo land.

Ridiculous thread.

Deputy Four Jobs Ross can't be expected to devote all of energies to politics.

The nation is lucky to have him two days a week.

Missed it (obviously).

What did he say?
He was on with Matt Cooper and he began by congratulating the government and gave his opinion on the benefits of the deal and also the negatives which were placing the burden on future generations. that is a summary of what he said
Ross is one of those politicians that I don't always agree with but I believe his opinions are often interesting, i like him.
