Neilformer – Commie in disguise (he of the Che loving, Coke hating Labour Kids) takes a few shots at Roderic O’Gorman and his nonsense post about the Green Party and their backturning on equality. Neil makes very salient points and also points to CiarÃ¡n Cuffe and another blog post on his view of the past week. I don’t for a second believe what he said last week in the press but once again a blog post from CiarÃ¡n gives me some hope that the Greens have some morals. What good are morals though if you never take a stand? Anyway, contrast CiarÃ¡n’s blog post with Roderic‘s. I know which one is more transparent. As Neil also points out, I think it very poor form to use the names of Katherine Zappone and Anne-Louise Gilligan to try and copperfasten what the Green Party did last week. It’s pretty low in my books.
Speaking of low, while cheap to laugh at a typo, I find it funny that Roderic talks about getting passed the spin, (I think he meant getting past the spin) as if he was the next baton holder in the Green Party FUDathon. It seems indeed that Roderic picked up the baton and performed well enough, if spin and buck passing is the game. Screencap of the blog post title before it is changed on Rodder’s blog.
I wonder will I get dressed down privately now because of what I said about the Greens? I hear that’s the new fashion these days.
