  1. Spot on. They should be stripped of their pensions if convicted of a crime. Money is the only language they understand. 

    • Those pensions are a farce anyway.  What private company would pay a pension from the date a person leaves employment?  The feckers should wait until they reach retirement age like the rest of us.  And it really make my blood boil to see little shits like Ahern swanning around the world [being paid as an "advisor"… HAH!!] after the state he left the country in.

  2. Retribution is all well and good and some people just seem to 'look like' they deserve it BUT beyod stripping his finances, in front of al the other TD's with their snouts in the trough… so all of them this bit stood out for me

    " had pleaded guilty to four counts of using invoices believing them to be false instruments."

    He was 'done' because he used invoices he believed to be false. So someone must have created these false invoices and what has happened to them?

    "Callely had put in bogus paperwork to support what would otherwise be valid claims"

    Doesn't this bogus papwerwork contradic the false invoices bit?

    He will serve half of his 'sentence' and go on to a successful career in the consulting circuit. No crystal ball required for that prediction we can all see the wel trodden parh.

    • I am a firm believer that the prison system is an abject failure.  Maybe in the good old days when people were confined to rat infested dungeons there might have been a point but for most criminals these days, it's just home from home. 

      I am a believer in reparation.  If domeone steals from me or damages my property, it's fuck all use to me if they are sent to prison.  The criminal should repay to the victim, not society.

  3. It is most untypical of you to suck up to a politician in this manner. Why didn't you put the boot in the fucker?

    • Don't worry.  I'll be waiting for him with my trusty baseball bat when he gets out.

  4. Grandad – Make sure he's not married or anything like that. If he is and you whack him hard enough so he takes a permanent type dirt nap then his wife (and possible kids) might end up on the dole and guess who pays for that? Of course, if he's not married then no problem.

    • Good point.  Politicians here have a very nasty habit of being followed into the game by their spawn.  We have had some really terrible politicians here who were following in Mammy's/Daddy's footsteps.
