Fintan O'Toole 'hissy fit' on Radio Ulster - Ed Moloney refuses debate with Danny Morrison Da

category national | politics / elections | news report author Thursday September 22, 2011 09:16author by Audi O Murphy Report this post to the editors

Opponents of Martin McGuinness don't want to be contradicted

Two successive days of entertaining radio as the motley crew opposing Martin McGuinness (Michael McDowell, Fintan O'Toole, Ed Moloney, Gregory Campbell, etc) get their act together.

Fintan and Ed have difficulty debating. On Tuesday (Sept 20) on the Pat Kenny Show, Ed Maloney refused to appear with Danny Morrison. That was after imposing the same conditions on the BBC. A very important fellow is Ed, who likes to be able to chose who is good enough to appear alongside his elevated self.

An even more important person is Fintan O'Toole, who, after a long innings on Radio Ulster's Stephen Nolan Show (September 21), took up his ball and ran. He was unable to persuade the great unwashed) to be quiet while the great one droned on uninterrupted.

Fintan's view seemed to be:
Dev never fired a shot in anger. There was no fighting in Bolands' Mill in 1916. The Brits sentenced him to death for no reason. Mandela had nothing to do with the ANC armed struggle. He was in Robben Island your honour.... and much, much more or at least there would have been if Tin Tin hadn't hung up.

It's very clear that O'Toole is not used to debate in which people disagree with him. The poor fellow should try the Maloney trick of picking his opposite number. If no one comes up to the mark, a mirror would be the handiest option.

The Audio is attached - enjoy. Jude Collin's comment on Fintan taking up his ball and running is here:

Why the animus from Moloney to Morrison? Possibly because of this:
