This morning's Irish Daily Star led with the front page blaring out, "Utter Gobshites."
How angry can you be to use such language against your own Government?
Perhaps this gentleman is the perfect example of controlled anger.
Perhaps we can say that the Irish are justifiably angry?
What, then, should we say about Mr Godfrey Bloom, a UKIP MEP, who was thrown out of the European Parliament today for shouting this: "ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuhrer" at a German?
The Right Honourable William Hague, MP, UK Foreign Secretary also let the mask slip and showed his true colours.
When asked if the Euro was finished, he replied, "Who knows?" There was no attempt at diplomacy and he did not try to calm the stormy waters.
Finally, Silvio Berlusconi is reported to have told a joke, so blue, at a gathering of top politicians, that the translator refused to translate.
And finally again the best for last, call me Dave. A UK Prime Minister so up his own arse, so confident in his temporary job and so disrespectful to the Speaker of the House of Commons, Mr John Bercow.
Have standards slipped into the mire? Do we really care? We get the Gobshites that we elect. So it's our fault, isn't it?
