Don't complain, Mary -- Miss Piggy is a compliment

I WAS young when 'The Muppet Show' character Miss Piggy was young. I am now a pensioner and bemused by what problem TD Mary Mitchell O'Connor has about being given a nickname by Mick Wallace.
It also annoys me the story took centre stage when there are other more important matters that TDs should be dealing with, especially the announcement a few days ago that 25pc of the fuel allowance for pensioners and the poor is to be cut by Ms Mitchell O'Connor's coalition Government.
In my young days, women venerated Miss Piggy's self-assertiveness.
