    If only he arrived before the weekend, he could have caught the rugby game and had the lols with his pals DOB and Seanie

        Haven’t you got anyone else to be annoying?
        What about your ma.. Give her a call there and pester her will ya.

        You see rotide, that’s the thing.
        Let’s say he had made it back in time for the game, and was in that picture with the other two, you’d be on here defending his right to go and enjoy a rugby game. That’s how predictable you are.

          What’s your point Fergus? Does a private citizen not have a right to enjoy a rugby game?

          1. Fergus the magic postman

            No, so don’t bother.

            People who have been wronged are perfectly entitled to feel rubbed up the wrong way when they see pictures of the perpetrators who should be in jail, out enjoying themselves. Together in some cases.

        Why do you defend people like these Rotide? Do you think you’re part of their set?

        1. rotide

          How am I defending them? It was a picture of 2 bottomholes at a rugby match which was somehow turned into OMG DIS CUNTREY IS GONE 2 DE DOGS.

          I am geniunely at a loss as to why people were so outraged about it and noone has been able to give me an explanation as to why

          1. rotide

            The people were happy to vote back in the party who enabled one of them to do a lot more damage to the country than the other one did so im still confused.

      Yes. He’s not a flight risk, the judge says.

      It would be hilarious if it wasn’t so angering. How can this man be deemed not a flight risk?

      Justice would have been better served if he had refused to return, & remained locked up in USA, but I guess he knew that.

      1. Daisy Chainsaw

        It was only after he got locked up in the US that he became amenable to extradition. This bird doesn’t like being caged, man! He’ll be petitioning for his passport back in the next couple of months as he’ll need a break to the Maldives to recover from his prison hell.

        I hope the cops reject his independent surety and keep him in the ‘joy for a while.

    Enda wanted to have some back up to his tall tails of the army defending atm’s from the masses of whingers

      A man who has already left the jurisdiction to avoid arrest, then spends months trying to avoid returning. A man who has, according to the US justice system, lots of money hidden away which could be used to establish himself in another Country.
      He gets incarcerated in the US, refused bail. Realises that Ireland is a soft touch and decides to return.
      DPP objects to bail, court is told that he’s a serious flight risk. bail granted.
      What a fupping great Country we live in.

    Probably did multi-generational damage to Irish society through his reckless lending resulting in massive bail out of Anglo and the cost to the state to pay it off.

    He put HIS hand in YOUR pocket.

    It’s going to take years of nonsense court dates and legalese and ‘requests for extension before presenting evidence’ etc etc, and ultimately very little will come of it except maybe sentencing him and a brief short lived euphoria for the masses. Wish to God the powers that be would just strip him of all assets and penalize all future earnings massively, then spent every cent saved on the process and every minute wasted on actually focusing on what the hell is going on in the financial institutions right now and regulating against it.

    Undoubtedly unfixed loopholes that the current breed of Drumms are utilizing this very day, you can write the script for a future date when the whole thing collapses again and history will repeat itself.

    ….. and the returning criminal spent not a single day in prison and lived happily ever after.
