SIPTU President nearly loses it on Tonight with Vincent Browne

1 Jun

The President of Ireland’s biggest Trade Union, SIPTU, nearly lost it on Tonight with Vincent Browne last night. He was being questioned about his complete cave-in on the Croke Park proposals, having been on the same show six months earlier threatening strike action unless the government reversed the public sector pay cuts.

Obviously not used to being questioned in such a direct manner, Jack O’Connor huffed and puffed and nearly threw the microphone off in righteous indignation that someone would see through his fighting rhetoric as mere posturing.
