UNREAL !! via today’s Irish Times.
These people chancers live on their own planet and are blatant about it and we don’t care one iota !
Mr Boyle said documents showed the Senator submitted claims for 45 nights in Dublin during 2009. “So you’re actually claiming money for a residence that you normally live in, whether you see it as a permanent residence or not?” he asked.
“That’s correct, yes,” Mr Callely said. He said this situation was “probably applicable” to other members of the House who have an apartment or house in Dublin and live in the country.
And while I’m at it, the article above misses the point ! The legislation exists for these people (and written by these people) to do this legally. All you need is a neck … and Fianna Failed have that in spades.
You can do ANYTHING in this country because the politicians know the electorate don’t care !!
The link in Irish minds and in our social culture, between the political corruption and our own inaction simply does not exist !
