Last thing we need is a bully

Madam -- They seem to have hidden Phil Hogan away for a few weeks. Now he's back with a vengeance. I think the Government would do well to hide him in the back benches until his time is up, and then let the people of Carlow, or wherever he's from, decide his future.

There are some fine people in Government, and they are doing their best in these trying times: Enda himself, Joan Burton, Michael Noonan and many more.

The people of Ireland have been very patient up until now. They have put their shoulder to the wheel and have accepted hardship and cutbacks with very few complaints.

The last thing we need now is a bully like Hogan. Get rid of him, and the sooner the better.
