The Lies They Tell - Part 4 of an occasional series

"In principle, neither politicians nor officials should accept personal gifts of value from outside their family."

Said by which Irish politician in 1996?

Why, the very same politician who recently ran to call an election to shut up the Mahon Tribunal.

The same politician who cannot explain his personal finances to the tribunal.

The same politician who explains large gifts of cash from developers as 'debts of honour' that took him over a decade to remember to repay, only after the tribunal started asking about them.

That same politician, people, who seeks election as Taoiseach for the third time this Thursday.

Brass-necked Bertie himself.

If this was Latin America, we'd have had a coup so many years ago ...

Dario Sanchez said...

Michael Lowry, of course. Damn typos.

Mr. Pot, meet Mr. Ahern.

Sometimes you just ahve to love this country. What other nation has politicians with necks like jockey's balls?
