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 !

So Brian Cowen has told Ivor Callely he must explain his extravagent expenses in writing to a Seanad committee. So, despite living in Dublin and being a Seanad representative for North Dublin, being from Dublin born and bred, he claimed €80,000 mileage expenses as if he was living permanently in Cork.
Eh, am I the only one that thinks he should make these explanations from jail ? Goes to show there is ZERO accountability in Irish politics. Nobody was watching him, nobody was questioning him … laughable if it wasn’t so fucking serious !
Ivor Callely – “working for you !” ME HOLE !!
