Re: Disappointed in Donegal

I dont think you can use FF the greens and M H Ray as a yardstick for anything except arrogance,negligence, greed and self preservation, what we will have after the election will be 2 similar sized parties with at least 1 thing in common, a hunger for power,this will be enough to allow compromise on...

Re: Keeping Atheism to Yourself

Ah.. the inappropriate remark.
Im reminded of Billy Connollys story about his first show at Park head, after the applause died down Billy motioned to the giant crucifix in the background and said "I hope I dont tell the same jokes as that poor c**t".
