Bertie Ahern

Former taoiseach Bertie Ahern is to resign his membership of Fianna Fáil just days before the party’s National Executive meets to consider a motion to expel him.

In an article in the Sunday Independent  newspaper, Mr Ahern said he was “deeply saddened” by the tabling of a motion to expel him from the party which he led for 14 years.

Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin yesterday confirmed his intention to seek the expulsion of Mr Ahern, former EU commissioner Pádraig Flynn and three others after they were criticised in the Mahon report.

Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan has instructed the head of the Criminal Assets Bureau to take charge of investigations arising out of the planning tribunal’s report which identified widespread dishonesty and corruption in public life.

I started this Blog to get out of my system the absolute rage that I have for the corrupt politicians and their Banker Buddies. I’m an ordinary guy, married with kids, and have firm opinions of what is right and what is wrong. I’m not afraid to say it even when it makes me unpopular. I reproduce news all manner of articles, but will always confirm the source of the articles; this is a compliment to the source of such news pieces. But if you do not agree with this and you are the original author, I will take down any article when requested to do so. I do not assume that the author of the news articles share with my views, I include news articles to give readers another slant to my views or to illustrate what the mainstream news media say on the relevant topic. The opinions expressed are my own but I do not accept liability for them, If I have offended you or made a factual error please put on record the truth by leaving a comment. In addition, my thoughts and opinions change from time to time...I consider this a necessary consequence of having an open mind. This weblog is intended to provide a semi-permanent point in time snapshot and manifestation of the various memes running around my brain, and as such any thoughts and opinions expressed within out-of-date posts may not the same, nor even similar, to those I may hold today. For the record I am currently an Independent political activist and am not affiliated to any political party

  1. ‘Couldn’t agree more. The problem is that most Irish voters have a sneaking admiration for gangsters of this type (witness Michael Lowrey in Tipp North). Is it that these eejit voters think some of the ill-gotten gains will rub off on them? We know it’s not any kind of “good on ye’ mate” because that is not the Irish way (begrudgery replaces that). Is it that these peasants have a slave-like adulation of their masters (legacy of 700 years of occupation?)?. Is it plain stupidity? I defeats me anyway.
    I’m 62 now and I’m mesmerized at the imbecility of the Irish voter – the idea that Fine Gael would offer a viable alternative to the FF…er party beggars belief. FG are more crooked, not less than FF! Labour have taken the soup (and smoked salmon) and are, in the words of Gilmore (referring to Frog Cowan), economic traitors to their electorate.
    But who will take the pensions off the criminal TDs / MEPs? …Other TDs? …I doubt it – they know only too well that such a move may rebound if they engage in dog-eat-dog tactics. Just as Irish doctors don’t challenge their peers and Irish lawyers didn’t challenge their peers when they are proved corrupt I cannot see shister-TDs doing any different. It’ll alway be the inside-elite -v- the decent people. The only way is to remove the insider-elite from power via a ULA-led government. Next time? We can hope I suppose. Maybe the Irish will wake up and vote in their first ever left-wing government who will represent their interests (rather than the interests of tyhe insider-elite)? Currently, Ireland is the only country in Europe that never had a left-wing government!!!
