Here are the words of a journalist who has no idea whatsoever about reality outside the bubble that is Dail Eireann.
Michael Martin has emerged, particularly since the marriage equality referendum, as a highly successful leader of Fianna Fail. He’s extremely good in the Dail and in fact at the moment he stands head and shoulders as a parliamentary performer in terms of his own party.
Irish Times (captured) journalist Michael O’Regan.
It’s good that there are so many captured journalists like O’Regan within the media because their ignorance of reality ensures that establishment politicians like Martin also have no idea what’s happening in the real world.
By the time O’Regan and Martin wake up they will find themselves as a chapter in a history book.
