Did I Say That ? - eh - What Did I Say ???/

“It is not correct — if I said so I wasn’t correct. I can’t recall if I did say it. But I did not say, or if I did say it, I didn’t mean to say it, that these issues could not be dealt with until the end of the Mahon Tribunal.”

One day his tax affairs cannot be dealt with until he has finished (lying to) giving evidence to the Mahon tribunal.

A few weeks later and all this changes, apparently the revenue can deal with his tax situation prior to the Mahon tribunal finishing with the slimey little fucker.

Another shit storm has blown up today re Bertie helping Manchester businessman Norman Turner, obtain an Irish passport in 1994.

Of course Bertie claims he did nothing wrong here, he states that under our CONSTITUTION and under the LAW OF THE STATE Mr. Turner was entitled to an Irish passport because his mother was an Irish citizen. the fact that Mr Turner made a fianancial donation of $ 10K to Fianna Fail had nothing to do with it.

Phil Hogan the Fine Gael environment spokesman said today "The timing of the issue of the passport is significant given what we now know about financial transactions involving Mr Ahern and his associates during 1994."

Mr Hogan also stated that Des Richardson, was given $10,000 by Mr Turner in 1994 and on the 8th August, 1994, the day before the passport was issued, Mr Ahern lodged £20,000 into the bank from what he has described as savings of £50,000.

I'm not an expert but this always seemed a little dodgy to me (Where did you get the € 20K ? "eh well you see I had it in a safe with € 30K more, yeah that's it € 50K, yeah in the safe, no banks no just the owl safe, for me kids ya know, their education and stuff, promised Miriam I did yeah.") But the timing was I'm (NOT) sure coincidental.

Of course there was also nothing wrong with Bertie and Dessie attending matches at Old Trafford as guests of Mr. Turner around the same time as the passport application and talks on the proposed casino development in the Pheonix Park were underway.

Reference the Irish Times the following is a list of transactions that the Mahon Tribunal are investigating re bank accounts operated by Bertie Ahearn.

" These include a loan of £19,115.97 taken out by Mr Ahern on December 24th, 1993; a lodgement of £22,500 made to a special savings account on December 30th; a lodgement of £27,164.44 to the same special savings account on April 25th, 1994; a lodgement of £2,835.56 made to a current account on the same day; a lodgement of £20,000 to an account in the name of Mr Ahern's daughters on August 8th, 1994; and a lodgement of £24,838.49 made to Mr Ahern's account on October 11th, 1994."

It's just staggering how much there is and the The tribunal says the transactions in question are largely undocumented.

How is this man still Taoiseach ? What sort of a government have we that would tolerate this sort of crap and still accept and defend this man as their leader ? The answer to both questions is of course the same 'Fianna Fail', the party and its members are so used to dodgy dealings and corruption (De-Valera, Charles Haughey, Ray Burke, P Flynn, Liam Lawler & Bertie to name the high profile ones only, never mind the scores of dodgy councillors in North Dublin and beyond) that they accept it and some even glory in it.

Only when public opinion turns against Fiaanna Fail and Bertie's satisfaction rating plummets will anyone in that party lead a revolt and then as we have seen in the past with Jack Lynch, Haughey and Reynolds it will be swift and bloody.

If I have to wait 10 more years to see someone nail you I will happily do so, YOU SLIMEY LITTLE CUNT.
