Michael D Higgins is a President for his comrades, not the whole country

Our head of State won't change his ways, but he should be called out for spouting such sentimental, socialist nonsense

Platform: Michael D Higgins appeals to socialist halfwits

It's not all bad news for President Michael D Higgins. He did receive some support from at least one other president for his simpering eulogy to dictator Fidel Castro. That was Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams, who told RTE's Sean O'Rourke last week that "those who would undermine or question the President's commitment to human rights have a cheek".

Not for the first time, Adams missed the point.

In fact, if you took Adams by the hand, led him over to the point, and then pointed at it, saying, "This is the point, Gerry", he'd probably still manage to miss it.
