The Elite and the Entitled of Irish Politics

Posted by

The Irish Dáil (Government buildings) is now in recess until the end of September which means the overpaid clowns have left Kildare Street and in effect the country may even be safe than before. At the moment we have no opposition in our so called democratic state also known as the Banana Republic for corruption and cronyism.

Last week I listened with total astonishment or maybe it could have been two weeks ago, when Kate Pharmacy O’Connell was talking about her sister on the Sean O’Rourke show and how she will be joining Kate in Dáil Éireann at the end of this year or early next year. Kate – can you please tell me how and why? Do you really think you were born with such entitlement and that the Irish people were born so stupid to let you away with these bizarre comments and gross arrogance? At the moment this Government only operate at the mercy of Leaderless Mickey Martin and the Fianna Fáil corporate, if FF pull the plug we will have an election on Monday morning. Our country is not in a good place now especially with Brexit gaining momentum and the cloud of uncertainty hanging over our economy. People need assurance that we have strong leadership and a stable Government. The people of Ireland have neither.

First, I want to return to the Kate O’Connell, FG. She is only in the Dail three wet Sundays; she has no history in politics and personally I find her a complete and utter attention seeker and me feiner. To state on radio that her sister would be joining her in the Dail before an election is even announced speaks for itself. O’Connell does not represent the poor in South Dublin; she represents the Corporates, the entitled classes otherwise known as the culchies who came to Dublin in the 1960’s, made their money in concrete and mixers, and then sent their offspring to private schools to create a D4 mentality and the rest is history. O’Connell and her husband own between them at least 40 pharmacies and never saw a hungry day in their lives so I ask Kate today who do you represent? You never speak on Crime, Homelessness, or Children going to bed hungry at night on this Island. O’Connell’s big achievement to date is bringing abortion to Ireland. Well done from some of us Kate. What is next – Is it legalising Euthanasia? Some neck, I will give her that.

Then we have Regina Doherty, Minister for Social Chaos and no protection. Her husband and herself have a High Court judgment against them for £2.6 million yet this doesn’t seem to bother her at all. Ms Doherty oversees millions of taxpayers money in the portfolio that she holds. This would not happen in any other country in the free world. But this is Ireland and as people are now realising Corruption is legal and Cronyism is the only way to climb the ladder in politics and business. People recall the Haughey years as GUBU but what will we call the times we live in now in years to come? We have no conclusion at present to at least 40 different inquiries going on in relation to Corruption in this country. Let me give you a few samples:

Garda Corruption: 2 million fake breath tests, corruption at Garda HQ and money laundering at Garda training college in Templemore, yet there is not one person facing the courts.

Our Charity sector: where now people who I trust can tell me that in the last decade there was in the region of £100 million gone missing into certain peoples’ pockets or into offshore accounts. We must not forget Console and Kelly, or Mr Conlon who is in a Swiss prison and yet our Journalists fail to report further on this. John of Gods – where a bunch of gangster took over £2.5 million and shared it among themselves; gave the Irish the two fingers. One of this bunch, a woman you all now, has landed a top job in Fáilte Ireland. Then we look to Rehab and the one who replaced Angela Kerins; she too has questions to answer in relation to thousands gone missing and visa cards being misused.

The latest scandal in the HSE is alarming. One consultant was being paid £14,000 per week and the explanation was that it was an error, missing records, dodgy audits, and again not one gangster within the HSE is held accountable. I repeat Corruption is legal on this Island if you know the right people and you operate in the circle of cronyism.

Last but not least the Shinners are being attacked for putting a candidate forward for the Áras. Our giant of a President, Michael Wee Higgins is offended because he feels he has the right to continue for the next 8 years. If he succeeds he will be almost 90 leaving the Park. This to me is another type of corruption of power and cronyism in this country. The taxpayers on this Island have to ask themselves is this labour midget worth £32 million per year to maintain his world travel, his champagne, the wife’s mini skirts and high heels and the advisers and maids that travel with him. I don’t think so.

I am now getting tired. I do agree with Bob Geldof all those years ago: Banana Republic. Nothing has changed, in fact things have got a lot worse. The person to ask is the Maltese Falcon, another narrative in itself for another day.

The words I began with I will close with. The country is riddled with Corruption and Cronyism and what will emerge if Brexit kicks into gear with immediate effect. They are already getting bureaucracy in place for the return of the border on the Island of Ireland and goodbye Good Friday Agreement.



Addendum: 8th September 2018

The Allens or may I say the Elite of Cork and RTE have made the headlines again for all the wrong reasons.  Let’s not forget some years ago, Darina Allen’s husband stood before the infamous Bitter Stone Faced Judge Pattwell, who would lock up, a homing pigeon found in the wrong nest.  The day in questions a traveller woman with eight children begged for leniency for shoplifting but Stone Face thought differently and gave her nine months in prison.  Then along came Darina and Hubby – the charge:  7,500 images of children.  Porn.  The Verdict:  Not to go to the Circuit Court.  Pattwell…/… fined his friend Mr Allen £34,000 and a slap on the wrist.  At that time, RTE got behind the Allen dynasty and made sure she kept cooking on her shows at Montrose.

Now we have Rachel Allen’s son, Josh, a young entitled thug who thought he could import £30,000 worth of illegal drugs from America but the National Crime Squad, backed up by the National Drug Squad, had him under observation for six months, which included the postal sorting office in Portlaoise.  You have to ask the question – how many parcels got through in the past and you would have to ask the question again – did this young thug use the sorting mail at Montrose to import drugs also under the guise of Rhubarb Tart Mum.  But: when most mothers would have the cop-on to stay indoors for a while and try and have a heart to heart with her son, Rachel has more important things to do and decides to turn up in New Ross last week at the JFK annual gathering and therein to sign autographs for her new recipe book.  She appears to have not a care in the world.

Ireland is definitely a changing country but definitely the elite or so called elite most definitely have no SHAME at all.

It will be interesting to see how this most serious illegal dealing drug case will develop and how the elite are treated before the courts.  Let us not forget that similar to America 92% of Ireland’s prison population come from poor backgrounds, lack of education provided and sadly in some families third generation going through the gates of our prisons.

To be continued.






  1. The Golden 400 own and (mis)manage Ireland. As for Regina Doherty wasn’t an American academic stopped by Special Branch/secret police goons at Dublin airport for having the temerity to inquire about Reg’s bank balance? Finally the Garda Siochana/Geisha Sayonara, breath tests are the least of it – proven perjury at Jobstown, illegality at Rossport and collusion in Eddie Fullerton’s assassination.



    In the last couple of months an employee of the DPP is suspended with pay in relation to a breach of confidentiality under the Oath that all staff must take, before working in that Government agency. It is a most serious situation that alleged leaks have come out from the DPP’s office and I repeat if it is factual, it actually is a betrayal of the State you work for.

    Frances Fitzgerald, who left the Justice Department, when she replaced the failed Alan Shatter, is back in the headlines and this time somebody is doing a fabulous PR cover-up because Ken Foxe of the Mail on Sunday, has disclosed emails and documents that are most disturbing and they raise many questions going forward. In Ireland’s political history and for almost eighty years a Cabinet meeting is completely State confidential and also anybody who speaks outside that remit must stand down and maybe or may I say face criminal charges. We all know Frances Fitzgerald began her career in Public Relations and she is a former employee and personal friend of Terry the Prune. I ask people today to just read the article by Foxe and then the questions, will start floating around in your head. Foxe first had asked the Department of Justice if there were any emails or correspondence between Fitzgerald and Terry the Prune when she was defending Noirin O’Sullivan at the time that Sgt McCabe, an honest Garda, was literally been thrown to the wolves. Also, we must mention Mick Wallace who may have faults in relation to unpaid taxes but who had the courage to take on Shatter and then Fitzgerald, along with former Commissioner Martin the Carpark Callinan and Noirin the missing mobile O’Sullivan. Foxe was told early in the request that no documents existed but to be fair to the journalist he kept digging. Now we know that what first popped up were sixty emails between Fitzgerald, former Carr Communications PR and then Minister for Justice at the time and Terry the Prune. Later on, through FOI papers and consistent banging on doors, a further sixty five emails have emerged. One particular email is most disturbing. This email goes: “How do I handle Wallace?” Reply: “Don’t Engage with him. Ignore him, let him be on the media and TV outlets. Deny all he says”. These emails should shock the Dail and particularly the present Government which is backed up by Martin and the other Cork Stooges.

    The question I ask today is direct: How can Terry the Prune have access to Cabinet meetings? How can she advise a former Minister for Justice in relation to State matters and I believe that this is just the tip of the Titanic iceberg. I believe that Terry Prone had access to a lot of State business and I also believe that the PAC committee should request that Fitzgerald should attend an urgent session and be put under the floodlights. If this country is going to have leak after leak and ordinary employees are suspended – how can Ministers be immune to the same laws. This story and I know this will happen will be buried in a matter of days but I ask John McGuinness today and Sean Fleming and other decent members of the Dail to call Fitzgerald to task on this. There are too many elite figure heads with too much information at the moment in relation to Cabinet meetings and Government files.

    To conclude today: some years ago a Government task force was set up to determine if e180 per week too much money for the unemployed? On that committee was the infamous Angela Kerins, former Rehab, who is now nearly invisible awaiting the conclusion of the Justices of the Supreme Court. Her salary at the time from Rehab was roughly at that time e5,500 per week plus expenses. Which idiot Clown put her on that panel?

    Do I have to say anymore? The elite are so called run this country and the TD’s are just the messenger boys and girls.
