Mansergh: Stupid or arrogant – or both?

Martin Mansergh speaking in our Parliament last Tuesday.

Deputy O’Mahony spoke about a five year old worrying about whether he would have to emigrate. I have a daughter who spoke in her teenage years of emigrating, but she is working in Ireland.

These things go around in cycles.

Emigration (enforced) goes around in cycles???

Mansergh is either an extremely stupid man or he is so filled with arrogance that he has become completely immune to the awful tragedy of emigration, I suspect the latter.

As for his daughter working in Ireland – well of course she is. She’s the daughter of a Fianna Fail Minister.

At least 4.5 million people would have to emigrate before such privileged citizens would need to worry about their circumstances.
