Breaking Bad Oh thats great stuff TDs talk TV at another Seanad

first_img Hugh O’ConnellSPENDING ALL YOUR time telling people to vote Yes in the Seanad referendum can be a bit tiresome so Fine Gael Minister Richard Bruton and TD Eoghan Murphy chatted about television instead today.Just kidding, there was a bit of chat about the referendum as Fine Gael unveiled a placard outside the Norwegian embassy on Dublin’s Molesworth Street to highlight how Ireland is apparently overrepresented when it comes to politicians.Later as they carried the placard back to Leinster House (or at least to end of Molesworth Street before they passed it off to handlers) the Minister wanted to know if Murphy had seen Breaking Bad.Murphy not only admitted that he hadn’t seen the Emmy-award winning series, he also hadn’t seen The Sopranos or The Wire.Surely that is more troubling than Ireland having a third more national poiticians than any other European country of our size?Read: Over two dozen academics urge No vote in Seanad referendumMore: ‘I can’t kiss you on the lips’: Little talk of Seanad as Gerry Adams canvasses in DublinWATCH: ‘Do I get the brown envelope?’: Minister meets mixed reaction on Dublin canvasslast_img
