Mansergh gets rattled on Hearts and Minds tonight…

Hearts and Minds should be worth watching tonight… Self styled ‘Socialist’ Fianna Fail TD Martin Mansergh gets pretty vexed during a debate with journalist Margaret Ward. In Margaret’s own words:

…he stormed out claiming I was a populist and he couldn’t believe someone with views like mine worked for the Irish Times! Basically, I asked him some hard questions, challenged his views and he did not like it. I guess he is not used to people standing up to him.

Unfortunately, he waits to the end of the discussion before he turns and walks, so there’ll be no tables or furniture turned over… As it happens, Martin got pretty agitated on the Vincent Browne Show last week… The ungentlemanly pressure of the political bear market is obviously getting to him…
