    Never mind the Presidency, Gallagher and Higgins et. al ........... it has been obvious from day one that "The Frontline" was a completey staged format. It takes its production values from Gerry Springer ...... and anyway Pat Kenny can't work without a detailed script.

    Questions and Answers was completely staged too.

    We can hardly expect members of our political class to think on their feet. What would all their advisers do?

    McGuirk story is considerably weakened by the email he sent to RTE two days after the show:
    "Thanks so much (name) for letting me on the show, I really have to say that you are a lady, also you are very good at your job (name), pat Kenny is lucky to have you at his right hand and nodoubt (sic) he no's that for sure!" he wrote.

    Talking to a party hack (FG) a short while ago and he said that the Q&A process was that audience members were invited to write out questions before the show, a handful were selected and brought off to be tidied up (the questions, not the punter ) and questioners were placed in designated seats.

    Given that the presenters in these things invite the audience member by name to put their question it must be obvious to all that they're not spontaneous questions arising from the flow of debate.

    Egg on face time for Gallagher camp followers and Fianna Fail

    Last year a judge ordered the poultry producer to pay €6,000 to charities after he pleaded guilty to offences linked to a false €27,000 jewellery insurance claim. Source

    Not the first time something foul at play then

    Did I see on the front of the Sindo there is no legal basis he can take a legal challenge? Should see the outpouring of empathy for him on his face book page...

    Some comments from the page...

    I gave you my number 1 vote as I believed and still believe that you were the best ambassador to represent the Irish people at home and abroad on an International stage.
    In contrast to the other candidates you have more real life,first hand experience of how the system is affecting Irish business people and their employees in the private sector, who have no safety nets such as the Croke Park agreement or Trade unions to come to the rescue in times of Industrial issues such as pay cuts and pension reductions.
    Candidates such as Gay Mitchell and Michael D.Higgins are woven from the Public Sector fabric,and in my opinion are alien to issues affecting people at grass roots level.
    I wish you every success with your request for an independent inquiry following the revelations from the Frontline debate.

    Best of luck Sean, you deserve a full enquiry. The whole country is on your side. It will take a man like you to put RTE & Kenny in their places.

    What experience would that be, having his pals bail him out with subsidies every time he f*cked up? This country is like a mad-house sometimes.

    I'm glad you still regard it, even from its antipodes, as this country.

    This is a cosmetic exercise, like re-arranging the deckchairs on the Titantic, a paper profit is more than offset by an 850k loss in an 84% controlled subsidiary, reserves is just a paper figure.

    If I were Gallagher's bank damager he would be on the mat pronto, all supporting securities checked rapid and a very good explanation as to why the receiver is not called in.

    His aspiration for High Office with FF backing failed and he like many of his ilk will now have to face economic realities without political power backup.

    A 850k loss is nothing once you have mastered the art of positive thinking.

    To respond to your snipes Mr Stanley would be to stoop to negative thinking.

    And we will have none of that in our new Ireland.

    SG would give Tony Quinn a good run in the cult of "self" business.

    Never turn down the opportunity to give an FFer a good kicking, make sure they do not get up.
