I don't want to be in the Dáil

A few minutes ago I happened to see a television showing today's (I think) proceedings from the Dáil. I have no idea why that was on that television, maybe whoever had it on just forgot to take it off when Knot's Landing finished. God knows.

Anyway, a tall, pleasant-looking white-haired man was speaking. I have no idea who he is or what he was saying, but just listening to his cadence and his droning voice made me glad I'm not an elected representative. Then his mobile phone started ringing and all us viewers were treated to that buzzing noise you sometimes get when your cell phone rings near the car radio or while you're already on a different phone. Simply television at its finest.
