Last chance to see…

On the eve of what will probably mark the departure of Ceann 'Clown' Comhairle, John O'Donoghue, I present to you his finest hour, in case you had somehow forgotten it.

Elaine Byrne of the Irish Times has this to say in her article:

That O’Donoghue is regarded as a good Ceann Comhairle and a nice man is irrelevant when his position as chairman of the Oireachtas Commission to reform political expenses constitutes a direct conflict of interest...

I do not see how this buffoon could be described as "a good Ceann Comhairle". As the speaker of Dáil Éireann, the Irish parliament, he should be almost beyond reproach in terms of his conduct and self-control. He is, constitutionally, the 4th most powerful figure in the State.

Now watch the video.

    Shortly after I posted this video, O'Donoghue announced that he will step down in the next week. Not before time.
