Video: Pat Rabbitte admits to breaking election promises
While most people were gripped by the Love/Hate buzz, you may have missed Pat Rabbitte conceding that breaking election promises is to be expected.

The Week in Politics may not captivate most people late on a Sunday night but this week was notable; the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources were all probed by host Sean O’ Rourke about broken promises made before the recent election.
Sinn Fein’s Pearse O’ Doherty was also on the case of the Minister, before Rabbittte admitted matter-of-factly “Isn’t that what you tend to do during an election?” when asked if he admitted to breaking pre-election vows.
He didn’t exactly pull a rabbit out of the hat by admitting that politicians will say one thing and do another in power, but we didn’t expect anyone to admit it on television.
Waiting below is probably the best business show in Ireland…
On this week’s The Capital B;
The man who created the underground Irish wrestling scene, a world away from the PG entertainment of WWE, talks violence, sex and making it as a professional;
The Dublin woman that is making you addicted to your phone and TV is talking the future of interactive television;
International adventurer and kitesurfer, Kris Goodbody, might be the only Irish man to make a living out of kites, but how can he possibly do it in the windless city of Dublin?
