Is this the worst political interview ever?

It’s hard to feel sorry for any politician in Ireland. But when you are completely unable to answer the most basic questions a politician would expect to be asked about their party, it’s hard not to feel sorry for Terence Flanagan of Renua Ireland. He had a complete brain freeze in an interview yesterday with RTE’s Mary Wilson, who handled this interview with her usual finesse. The interview is reminiscent of that dream you had, where you forgot to wear pants to school one day…

A small part of us, a very small part, mind you, fears that even Renua Ireland does not have an answer to those questions, and his reaction reflects this?

Maybe not…
