Michael Martin and the steel in his spine

Some quotes from Pat Kenny’s show last Friday.

Paddy Duffy on how he judges politicians.

I really judge politicians on how clear they are on issues and how they deal with them.

What? Surely this is not the man who worked for the bumbling, grossly inarticulate, chronically incompetent Bertie Ahern?

Terry Prone on Michael Martin

This is a man who writes history, this is a man who care about history and the history of his party. He will go down in flames if he’s forced to go down, he’ll fight to the last. And he’s quite a gentle man but his spine is steel.

It’s difficult to believe that Prone has spent her entire working life mixing with incompetent, cowardly and self-serving politicians like Martin and still cannot see what’s right in front of her face.
