Mary Lou’s actions have me agreeing with Big Phil

Mary Lou McDonald’s recent disobedience in the Dáil towards our democracy, has had me thinking of Phil Hogan, someone I never aspired to agree with politically, never mind allowing him inside my cluttered over-taxed head.

However Hogan, now EU agriculture commissioner, has proved himself with his sagacious and prudent words: “there seems to be a little break-down in discipline in Sinn Fein and I hope you won’t get into trouble with it”.

Something to think about during General Election 2016.
