You wouldn't see this in the Dail

You wouldn’t see this in the Dail.

Two MPs from the Ukrainian parliament in Kiev came to blows yesterday following a disagreement regarding an anti-corruption bill they were debating.

Yegor Sobolev of the Self-Reliance Party and Vadim Ivchenko of the Fatherland Party went toe-to-toe and both emerged with bloodied lips.

Uniformed army personnel watched on as the men rained punches at each other before eventually breaking it up.

As a wise woman once said, ‘AH HEYOR, LEAVE ERROUH!!’

Imagine two of our TDs going at it like that? We’re not sure if anyone would try to stop it, though.
