Martin needed a ‘regional’ woman and Kerry was the best (only?) place to find one. Chambers has dirtied her bib for reasons many are aware of, while Anne rabbite apparently pissed off a large section of the party over recent weeks, telling dissenters they needed their wings clipped or ankles slapped or words to that effect
You keep mentioning Chambers...she’s not in the Dáil. Just not a credible appointment from the Seanad.

He's going after the Healy Raes. He's going to piss all over them, whilst giving Foley the platform to announce anything and everything that has a positive for Kerry.
I genuinely hope that this government actively discriminates against constituencies or pet projects of the independents

The sooner voters get that message, the sooner we stop all this fragmentation and flight to fringe or single issue candidates

At the very least I suspect that the requirements will change which will have an impact.

KPMG were close to taking the Garda building on Harcourt Street (total refurb) for example. Will they now? I was talking to a partner (shrewd operator) and head of the Covid response in a Big 4 firm the other day who lives near my parents. He was in no hurry to get back to the office. He was actually disgusted at the various office businesses going back. He sees this as totally transformative, he doesn’t see the office ever being at 50% of current capacity again. I think he is overegging it (though he is in the minority of law and accounting partners generally who do want to get back to some form of normal), but he is part of the thinking of many.
I'm not so sure.

I think there are all sorts of legal, regulatory and insurance hoops to be jumped through, and that's before you get to quality of life issues. I think a very few people will want to work from home 100% of the time. Parents with small children will probably want to do 2 days a week or so at home, but just while the kids are small. Other than that, the office will remain where the action is.
They still means looking for less office space.

The regulatory hoops aren’t that big, you can change the conditions of employment. There’s already lots of people working remotely. The biggest issue was untested IT infrastructure for doing it on a scaled basis and a culture issue. That’s gone now.

Offices will still he looked for and people will learn that to get ahead you’ll need to be in more, but you won’t need the levels of space as before.

Even a longer term 20% reduction in people going into offices daily will be a positive all round. Of course things are still growing, so the infrastructural reprieve we experience now will only be temporary. People still want to live and work in cities.
I agree that's probably what you're talking.

Genuine question - have you ever been in a big 4 accountancy office?

They are half empty most of the time with people working offsite, so im not really sure what this partner is on about tbh.

I've had mates not turn up for a week on the piss and get colleagues to just log in their laptops in the office every day in KPMG, they are half empty most of the time and they have no idea where half the employees are.

You’ve been following me around since I called out your whataboutery on Farrell

Instead of admitting that your insurance fraud jibe was shinner-level whataboutery, you’re now trying to open up a new front, based on an entirely reasonable comment I made re: paucity of FF women cabinet options

I’ve no interest in your deflection ..... it’s pathetic

Anyhoo, I wish this government well,and given fair wind, it could do a lot for our PT, and also Carbon emissions.

Interesting that Varadkar took Enterprise, as he would know exactly what FDI is in the pipeline post covid.

eoin ó broin is pushing 50? Jesus fúcking christ. I could have almost forgiven him if he was in his early 30s. Either a thick cúnt, or a devious cúnt.

Really happy the Greens didn't shít the bed. hoping that each party has enough quality to pull it together.

Just have to be honest and do what's best for the country with the resources available. Can't be that difficult RIGHT?

Yep - best of luck to all of them

Plenty of (seemingly) competent people in there ...... certainly an improvement on clowns like Ross, Boxer Moran, Ring, Naughton and Halligan

Heather humphreys is a bit of a dope I think ...... she got lucky in that she’s a woman and she’s not from Dublin

Interested to see how mullets lad goes in housing ..... he’s a bit of a mouth (quelle surprise) and I’d say he won’t be afraid to offend the “forever free house” brigade. I’ll certainly be roaring him on if he starts taking strips off Eoin O’Broin.

Hiring Conor Skehan as an adviser and rubbishing everything Orla hegarty says, would be a good start ..... oh and collecting DCC social housing rents would help too

Donnelly may have been a poor choice. The man is a spoofer commentator.

Yes. 2 to 3 10 max will be out of the office at any one time. Auditors on site, consultants on site or traineees out for exams.

Tax will all be there, all the time. Advisory is also far more likely to be in the office than not. Audit and consultancy is only one part of a firm and a lot of them will be in regardless.

Everything swaps over, more than likely, when FG (hopefully Varadkar) take over in 2022. So FG will go into the election with the poisoned chalices.

Housing is a calculated risk. A massive amount of new build and/or social housing is going to come onto the market in the next 3-5 years; FF will get the kudos for it.

Yep, unfortunately ....

But hopefully this Norma Foley does a good job of claiming all the kudos for everything benefitting Kerry, in order to squeeze the Healy Rae yokels out of the limelight .....

Constantly expose Sinn Fein and constantly marginalize the various indos, and both main parties could get an extra 15-20 seats each next time around

Huge repayment by Martin for the loyalty shown by Donnelly and O'Brien. Hopefully they come through for him now. I'm sure O'Brien can manage it, Donnelly not so much.

I see Lorraine Clifford Lee is back in the Seanad. Mullet will be delighted to have her running with him again next time out.

No, should have said counties containing cabinet members' constituencies.

Some grousing about representation from rural TDs. Couple of the independents who went for Martin as Taoiseach did not vote for the cabinet.
