    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."
