Bus stop . . . Debate . . . Posters . . . Rhetoric . . . Insult

Paul Moore (Letters, Friday, February 4) expresses dismay that there is no bus pick-up stop at Terminal 2. He is mistaken. Both Dublin Bus and Aircoach now stop in front of the Taxi pick-up at T2.

DAA deserve recognition for delivering a terminal we can be proud of.

  • Voltaire said: "I may disagree with what you have to say, but I shall defend to the death your right to say it."

Eamon Gilmore and Micheal Martin would do well to remember this when considering the proposed five-party public debate.

  • How nice to see that while many of us in college struggle to buy basic stationery and books -- all made from paper -- the majority of the politicians in this election, from the established parties to the Independents, feel the necessity to have their faces mounted on posters every couple of yards on the same stretch of road. And they call us students vain.

  • The nasty rhetoric coming against Ireland from Angela Merkel and Nicolas Sarkozy reminds me of the initial disdain Hitler and Petain held for their own "inferior" minorities. Be afraid.

  • How can Fine Gael have a shred of credibility when it keeps trotting out the same people who, only seven months ago, publicly declared their opposition to Enda Kenny's leadership?

This can only be described as a mockery and an insult to the electorate.

  • I HAVE an observation on the latest TV licence ad.

Most women who have had to make a quick exit do not normally leave their shoes behind. Usually it's their underwear.
