Hey there

The funny folk over at The Emergency, political satire and homour group have given us 5 copies of their new CD USE DEMOCRACY SENSIBLY to give away.

“Twas the night before Xmas, and all through Leinster House, not a creature was stirring, for they were all soused….” The Emergency presents their version of A Christmas Carol, where acting Taoiseach Brian Cowen is visited by three spirits – the Ghosts of Government Past, Present, and Yet To Be.

Featuring material from the PPI award winning first season broadcast on Newstalk 106 – 108FM as well as brand new sketches, bonus tracks and the new carol for the season A TDs’ Xmas Song.

Use Democracy Sensibly is written and performed by The Emergency - Morgan C Jones, Eoin Byrne, Joe Taylor, Dermot Carmody, Karen Ardiff and Nick McGiveny.

I've heard these guys perform and have been listening to the CD I got - it's very funny. Any fans of good Irish political satire should love this and it's bound to be a popular sticking filler for the dads.

Anyhow, if you want to be in with a chance, just drop a comment below with your favourite (unintentionally) funny quote by an Irish politician. We'll accept any that aren't "Who'll feed the Gondalas?"

Winners announced next Friday.

"The revelation that Mr Haughey, for his own personal benefit, redirected those [monies collected for Brian Lenihan's liver operation] and other donations intended for the Fianna Fail party, was a matter of grave disappointment for me and for those who worked with him."
