  • Dobson just referred to “joe higgins the socialist”, that about sums up the Irish political spectrum #ge11 #
  • @jbwan Kennealy’s continued popularity in Waterford is a testament to advances in medical science. #ge11 #
  • @jbwan he’s very popular with the over 65s apparently. In another era, most of his votes wld be pushing up daisies #

  • @normanwyse Must remind Jason F (all day on Mon) that we’ve elected a genuine dyed-in-the-wool marxist πŸ˜€ #
  • @fionahaughney yes. absolutely. Many more socialist TD’s than Fianna Fail ones in the new dail #
  • I hope that the rise of the left & some talented independents will lead to real debate in the up til now dysfunctional dail #ge11 #
