Cute Hoors and Pious Protesters - Traits and Characteristics of Irish Politicians
Journey into the secret world of the Fianna Fáil bar lobby, understand how the best trait of any back-bench TD is an ability to ‘walk around saluting the people’, and explore the great tales of cute-hoordom and eccentricity that are some of the better features of Irish political life.
After 15 years of mingling, observing and occasionally drinking with our strange politicians, the acerbic commentator John Drennan unveils the traits and characteristics of the political class that has, after less than 90 years, destroyed the independence of our fledgling state.
He examines the great absence that is Brian Cowen, the unbearable lightness of Enda Kenny, and how Eamon Gilmore runs the risk of being drawn into the politics of pontificating up the rear end of cows. If you want answers to the reasons behind the sad travails of Fine Gael’s dysfunctional Kilkenny cats, how the Greens became the bespoke Italian designer kitchen of Irish politics, and how Fianna Fáil’s embrace of the politics of culture and anarchy broke the state—this is the book to read.
