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.
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.
