RTÉ is replacing best presenters with clones

What is RTÉ at? Love him or hate him George Hook is one of the most original pundits on RTÉ. He has a contract to continue up to the end of the Rugby World Cup for which they must pay him, but RTÉ has decided he must go now.

The Saturday Night Show is extremely popular due to its presenter Brendan O’Connor but he must also go.Is RTÉ looking for “standard” presenters who seem to have been cloned?

The reason Jeremy Clarkson is so popular is that he is not one of the herd, he is a one-off like Hook and O’Connor.

And when Ray Darcy presents the new Saturday night slot will it be called “Ray Nua”?
