That’s trolling now. You glibly asserted people could simply walk to their destination. I said that wasn’t an option for many constituents who have come to my office and met me on same. I don’t know who your father is, so the idea it was some slight against him, or you, is absurd

Unfortunately for some people that isn’t as easy an option as your glib, dismissive tone suggests. I stand by the ABP decision and wish you a good afternoon.

Yes but, again, the proposed alternatives were considered worse. Shunting commuters away from where they need to be and CLOSING a main artery for a plaza isn’t the answer. ABP have made their decision, City Manager has declared it “dead”, I consider this matter to be closed.

Didn’t say that either. I would remove non Dublin Bus coaches, and private vehicles at all times, for starters. Not my call though, just stated my belief that plaza wasn’t workable as proposed. Clearly ABP agreed.

Anyone who uses the services understands. A sensible decision by ABP.

Wrong. Some Northside buses don’t go down this street, as many have been triaged off. Those that haven’t (9, 13, 16 etc), simply haven’t because the alternatives aren’t workable for the majority in these areas. For the Northside, this gate is a “spine” in BusConnects language

Good job on the selective screengrab where you ignore my substantive final reply. Weird how you only resurrect during campaigns. Goodbye Anonymous Snowflake.

If you had done your homework instead of tweeting, you’d know I criticised Higgins on the front of Sunday Times based on his Castro remark. I, however, support him, as you’re aware. I take people as they come, I will never agree 100% with anyone, but MDH represents us well. Bye.

I like that you deleted the first swing at this “point”, where you were replying to a case about someone being deported. Blocked.

I’m a big fan of his and have been for a good while now. Think he gives off a very plain spoken sense without being party political. Nice to be RTd

Spot on. The absence of reason and reasoned debate creates an atmosphere where two five second soundbites can sound equally reasonable, and there’s a fear of debate beyond that depth.

Agreed. Having a difference of opinion is fine. Discussing the difference of opinion is fine. Debate don’t hate.

It’s a nastiness that has crept into everything online: you can’t have any political views any more without someone jumping down your throat in a very personal way, and nuance is seen as weakness.
