    Me thinks you have led a very sheltered life to date, the post was put up for a laugh.

    A decent sense of humour?

    Micheal Martin was an excellent minister in all the portfolios he held (many of his political foes will agree with that). He was the first minister internationally who introduced a smoking ban (possibly the single most important public health initiative to occur in Ireland in past 30 years) against the wishes of powerful lobbying groups and senior members of the then government McCreevy and Harney. He took over a party rightly decimated after overseeing the bankrupting of the country....the main players scarpered off with their pensions. He steadied the ship and supported bi partisan efforts to stabilise the country. He has now lead FF and FG to join forces for national stability a fact few would ever deemed possible and coming up to 100 year anniversary of our most divisive history of our country. He has faced down powerful voices in his own party. He has faults but I for one am happy that this arrangement will go forward. I didn't want a payrise in the midst of a global recession and pandemic. I didnt want €200 for ever citizen when there is no money to spare. I could go on listing the ridiculous populist recommendations from the party of 'change' but run out of space.
    I am reassured in the knowledge that the cabinet will be made up of some of brightest minds of the 3 parties and look forward to giving them a chance to govern in uncertain times.
    LOL. Get back to work meehole, never knew you were on here

    I realise that he (or FG) is not everyone’s cup of tea- but I was proud to have Leo as Taoiseach - and I would have despaired of Ireland had we voted in SF (again I realise this is probably only a little more popular a stance than the former), but I am dismayed by the cobbled together self/interested anti democratic nonsense we now have as a government. I would not have wanted SF with an asses roar of government, but I believe this short term marriage of convenience will be politically damaging for all Involved and the country, in the longer term. COVID prevented another election, which would probably have been equally inconclusive. Could we not have had a national government of ALL the talents (inc SF and independents), appointed for, say 3 years (ie post Brexit and COVID, recovery phase)on a non party political basis, rather than this demeaning, parochial patronage.

    Regina Doherty who wanted the Seanad abolished during the 2015 referendum, is now happy to be a Senator and head of the Seanad.

    Great to see those who were rejected by the voting public being appointed to the Upper house so much for change.

    Maybe above is a more balanced article than my comments on Micheal Martin. Stanley your comments are untrue and libellous. Unlike other constituencies he would not have consistently polled high in Cork SC if he was corrupt and lining his own pockets as you suggest. I have just heard Richard Boyd Barrett in introducing his comments on the government say this is not against Micheal Martin as he launched into his speech. He surely would have included him if he was this figure you paint?

    Jasus, you make MeHole sound like some kind of Disney Superhero, whereas he has been useless in any portfolio in the past, constantly kicking everything into touch and demanding Reports, half of which he then does not bother to read.

    He was involved in the Mahon Tribunal and absolutely up to his tits supporting Owen O'Callaghan (r.i.p.) and his destruction of Tom Gilmartin's ambitions for Quarryvale SC in Dublin.

    He is old fashioned FF and likes to earn a few quid on the side.
