I received a PR about the Late Late Show from Fine Gael this evening and read it with some surprise. The Fine Gael leader in the Seanad had been asked to appear in a three person panel debate about Seanad Eireann on tonight’s show. Unfortunately the Party’s Leader of the Seanad, , could not appear on the show as she was unavailable.
The Party then nominated Senator Paschal Donohoe to be its representative on the panel, but he was rejected “grounds of gender balance”. RTÉ were determined not to allow Senator Paschal Donohoe to appear on the show and his place was allocated to Senator Alex White of the Labour Party, a MALE Senator. So that was obviously a false premise.
Fine Gael were offered a place on a four-person panel, but again the party representative was rejected. So I won’t be watching the Late Late Show tonight
