George Hook loose and unplugged…

Great wee interview from last week’s Late Late… Not simply because George Hook puts Tubs off his stride, but because he absolutely talks out the George Lee problem beautifully… with an admission that he’d been asked by FG to run for Europe, and declined… Good to see someone put the wind up Tubridy…

    Whatever merit there was in the proposition for running famous sports people and high media profile people as political representatives, up to a decade ago, in this age of instant Celeb. status where non identities can be plucked from obscurity to instant recognition and fame, there is now none!

    There is already enough ineffectual seat-fillers on all back benches of all parties and even where the celebrity has talents as with George Lee to make a contribution that do not fully accord with the bland, non controversial, party platitudes that usually pass for policies on these islands, they quickly face the fate of ………. well George Lee !.

    Nice interview and I dont like Tuberty either but I thought he did a reasonable job with Gerry last night.

    Bryan, I´ve decoded what you wrote, to mean Tubridy shied from hard questions.
    Am I correct?

    Prescient comment by Hook about Lee alright.

    Tubridy has connexions to the Andrews FF clan.But Tubs a bit hypocritical to say he would do his job for nothing. But last year he only relunctantly agreed to a pay cut.
