Who said this? I'm guessing Bertie? I googled it and his name came up, but I couldn't find the name linked to the quote. I did find a Bertie wiki of quotes though; some of these are doozies:

"I am sure there are some mornings you get up and you think I might do this or I might do that and then you don't do them so, its hard to remember."

Come on, that sounds like something Winnie the Pooh would say.

"It is not correct, and if I said so, I was not correct — I cannot recall if I said it, but I did not say, or if I did, I did not mean to say it"

Lionel Hutz.

"That decision will in history be written as the biggest mistake that American administration ever made, because Lehmans was a world investment bank. They had testicles everywhere."

George W. Bush

Phil Hogan's response, in 2009, to a request that he "put on the national jersey" and take a voluntary pay cut:

Staying current, lets not forget this:

“There is no reason why anyone should go to prison . . . I do not envisage anybody going to jail for a €100 household charge.” -Phil Hogan.


"I see meters as the friend of the householder and friend of business as they'll prevent people from paying for water that's wasted"

-Michael Noonan speaking about water meters.


"We have a job of work to do" -A rather odd phrase often used by Eamon Gilmore.

Seems to be a Labour phrase:
