The PR people in FG should have told her that this would not look good.

However it is very likely that this will either succeed in court or be settled.

The hotel which has an indoor swing where it knows drunk people will be using it should have known better also. Its all grand to be giving out about dodgy claims and rip-off insurance and so on but business owners need to use a bit of cop on too.

When i was 11 i cut my back open on a slide once.

There was a sharp bit ...it was my own fault my friend warned me and said don't lean back...but i was wild and reckless and also forgetful..

Don't know how people can joke about this tbh. It's pathetic and shows up the type of idiots we elect. Irish apathy is the most frustrating thing in the world.

These same hotels probably shouldnt have stairs....or doors...or glass on the premises....coz, yunno...drunk people.

Ms Bailey is a hoot to watch on the see-saw btw.

Is there no personal responsibility whatsoever these days?
It isn't even a proper swing, you just sit on it to get a picture.
If she fell off it because of her own stupidity then she has no one to blame but herself. It can't always be someone elses fault ffs.

Sat at work here wondering what kind of millionaire lifestyle I'd be leading if I put in a claim for every single incident that happened in my life. I'd be rolling in it.

This is the other thing!!!!!

If that swing goes, what are all the chungwans on Tinder going to do.
Every single one of them has a Sophies swing pic on their Tinder!

She should be mortified bringing that to court.She needs supervision while using a swingffs.

I'm amazed no one in FG told her to cop the **** on and not bring this to court.

I hate this stuff. It's why playschools are closing down and kids can't run in the yard anymore. I remember when, as a kid and as an adult, if you fell you just felt embarrassed and tired to walk it off. Now first thoughts are to sue.

I've sat on one of those swings while waiting for the lift. No one needs instructions on how to use them. The dope had items in both hands. I'm sure she didn't just sit still either. Probably tried to swing with no hands. And these idiots are representing us?? That other eejit driving down the steps before too.

At least the hotel seem to be fighting it rather than just agreeing a settlement. I hope she loses and has to pay all legal costs too.

only reasonable course of action is to let your local FG election and European election candidates that you will not vote FG because of this, no matter who the candidate is.

Yeah that sounds fair and right.

There will be no one or no parties left to vote for if people won’t vote over one members behavior.
