    Please, Mrs McAlese, end this Dail, the President has to step in, the Minister of Finance didn't even read the full report on Anglo before he decided to nationalize it! I have no confidence in any of this, its wrong, wrong, wrong.

    The opposition parties should just walk out of the Dail at this stage, the Greens need to stop the government before they waste another 7 billion that we don't have!

    This is our future they are throwing away.

    Everybody say a little prayer for Ireland, we are going to need it.

    Yeah, but we always reckoned that Maggie Thatcher had a thing about Charlie Haughey when he was the Taoiseach, he was a bit of a charmer, I bet they got in on, she was well up for it.

    Untrue, it was because us Caledonians kicked seven bells out of them, so they buggered off and built a wall.

    Cheers, nice to be in.

    Yes, you were hard, but they did have a go before they ran away; they wouldn't even land in Ireland.

    Quite, they are a tricky lot, they got the better of us for a long time.


    No, your only the second greatest, if it wasn't for us Scots there wouldn't be a world........

    Yes, and if there was no Ireland, there would never have been a Scotland, you invented the world, but we invented you.

    By all the hells, he must have been feckin DESPERATE!!

    Ah, sure he was just giving her an auld lash, it was probably a slow week for him, he was a sly dog.
