Start with this: “We do not come to treat with Sauron, faithless and accursed. Tell your master this: the armies of Mordor must disband.- Gandalf”

Replace ‘Sauron’ with [Enda, Michael, Gerry, Joan, Lucinda, Richard, Joan, Joe, Shane/Claire/Mick]

Replace ‘Mordor’ with: [Fianna Fail, Fine Gael, Labour Sinn Fein, PPP, AAA, SP, Ind, ReBoot]

Replace ‘Gandalf’ with your favourite political minion/muppet

And you’ll get some thing like this:

“We do not come to treat with Enda, faithless and accursed. Tell your master this: the armies of Fine Gael must disband.- Willie O’Dea (possibly wearing pointy plastic ears”

Repeat as necessary.
