Joan Burton likes her Hells Angels types of guys, as she confessed to Brian Lenihan.
"As moments of light relief go, it is nice to see Mr Anders Borg, the Swedish Finance Minister, with his earring and ponytail, among the other finance ministers," she said during the debate on the euro bailout of Greece.
She's also an expert on the wolf-pack behaviour of financial markets from her observation of the live species.
"I lived in Africa for a time and often had an opportunity to observe the antics of hyenas and hunting dogs.
"The strongest pack is the one that shelters its young and ensures that they, as the weaker elements, do not easily become prey."
