    Michael Martin is trying to sit on the fence - just doesn't know what fence to sit on - he is all over the place

    Awful stuff so far, Martin stuttering throughout.!

    Ireland's worst ever Taoiseach.

    His body language is telling all sorts...I used to watch Lie To Me.

    Awful waffle from martin, exudes no sense of authority whatsoever. Weak.


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,356 ✭✭✭✭Beechwoodspark


    Seems to be signaling big Phil is safe once he does an interview?

    I don't take any notice of his stutter, people stutter, but his body language speaks volumes when he is on tv.

    I don't think Claire Byrne is anywhere as insistent as Sarah McInerney, she would have pushed harder for his response on Hogan resigning.

    I still think she relies too much on asking prepared questions off her cards and isn't always the best at going off on a tangent when throwing a bit of a juicy bone.
    Is it true Michael Martin sponsored one of the prizes for the golf? That was mentioned in the Phil Hogan thread.

    I think it was sponsored by FF, but could be wrong on that.

    Claire setting out her stall?
    She won't be waffled over, hopefully

    Claire is not doing great - Michael is horrendous on his own .

    I dunno, she persisted with the scandal questions despite Martin bloviating multiple times.
    There is only so far someone can badger on the Hogan resign issue - it really is out of their hands bar expressing disapproval to the EU 9publicly at leasst, maybe they can much more privately)

    I’ve no kids but Jesus MM isn’t being that clear at about schools.

    MM sounds increasingly flustered. Lots of “in respect of” and “clear communications” waffling.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,215 ✭✭✭khalessi


    I have sent in a load of questions re schools none asked yet

    "The dail is coming back next week, so what's the big deal?" Absolutely shocking.

    I personally dislike varadkar much more, but he is a master at spin which Martin can not match.

    Agreed - people pining for the GOT YA style of Sarah , constant but “ it is good enough etc etc “
    Much prefer calm precise questing of Claire .

    Soft ball questions aplenty for Martin here. Same old as you are RTE.

    That’s his frustration turning to temper. Never a good trait in a leader.

    Ah sure i know but heyho


    ETA watching him on FB sweating like a mad thing


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,639 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    So Covid-19 spreads between people apparently. That may be true but what a statement to make.

    It wasn’t really what he said it was how he said.

    Nervous laughter kicking in now


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,215 ✭✭✭khalessi


    His hands will be exhausted with all the hand gestures


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,474 ✭✭✭cozar


    if only MM would quote a line from some movie we'd all have more confidence in him then.
