Women just can't have it every way

On RTE's 'The Eleventh Hour' on Monday night we had Elaine Byrne launching into an attack on the panellists Eamon Dunphy and Fintan O'Toole by stating that: "This just looks like more middle-aged angry men." A remark that we all know is a sackable offence at Sky TV.

Ms Byrne is a TCD lecturer and if this is the tone she takes with a group in society that she has issues with, then I wonder what slant she imparts in her lectures to students in TCD.

Women need to understand that they can't have it every way, jumping and screaming when someone says something that does not suit their sensibilities then expecting that they can rant on without correction.
