There you go now.

Meanwhile….

In yesterday’s Sunday Independent, Gene Kerrigan wrote:

Fianna Fail has for ages been demanding an inquiry into Nama’s property deals. Last week, when Mick Wallace put down a motion to that effect, they voted against it.

No, no, they explained, we can’t have an inquiry – sure, isn’t the Comptroller and Auditor General looking into this?

Yes, the C&AG is looking at one aspect of it. Just as he was last time Fianna Fail demanded a full inquiry.

The thoroughness with which Fianna Fail has betrayed its own members and voters, and the interests of all of us, is impressive.

It’s doing a creditable job of helping Fine Gael keep the lid on the Nama scandal, while simultaneously posing as the main opposition party.

As long as the political correspondents facilitate this deception, so long will duplicity prosper.

…Fine Gael and Fianna Fail voted down an inquiry on the basis that any State scrutiny will somehow interfere with due process.

With exquisite comic reasoning, the very fact the PSNI, the NCA and the FBI are disturbed by the smell from Nama has become reason for the Irish establishment to ignore the smell. Question: what don’t they want us to know? What is it makes them pretend they don’t get a hint of a smell from the festering Cerberus deal?

…Meanwhile, Standards in Public Office has published details of the state money politicians receive. I’d explain why the State gives politicians this money, but I don’t know.

Fine Gael spent €200,000 of our money on secret polls before the election, all the better to manipulate the voters.

Now, this polling, paid for with our money, gives politicians an advantage over candidates who don’t get a state subsidy. That sounds unconstitutional to me – perhaps under the ruling that prohibits one side in a referendum from using state funds to influence opinion.

    There’s a parade of voting idiots in this country that will not listen to reason. They keep voting these lying scumbags in. Even when they in fact LIE to their voters faces they still get the votes. And their voters will not be persuaded. It doesn’t give me much hope for change.

    The irish solution to the ehh, irish problem, see no evil, speak no evil and hear no evil.
    Therefore no evil exists.

    ‘Once upon a time, independents such as Shane Ross and Finian McGrath might have demanded an inquiry. Now, they voted with Fine Gael. Shane has become the Minister for Being Totally Incurious and Finian is the Junior Minister for Shrugging His Shoulders.’

    I voted for Finian McGrath.. I tweeted him that article last night and told him I’m sorry I voted for him.
    I’m sure he’s very upset about that, with me having 4 followers and all.. but still.. he’s another useless swine who’s riding the gravy train.

    Great to see Labour, and of course Katherine Zapping, tireless defenders of the working class, also voting against an investigation.

    Did the highly principled Social Democrats attend but abstain, or had they better things to do that day?

      Zappone, not zapping. Apologies; autocorrection.

        If you actually read the list, you’ll see Catherine Murphys name in the no column, sooooo….yes.

    I wonder sometimes is there a strategy to not role out broadband across the country so people are kept in the dark about what these useless c***s do for us.. like you’re not getting much from RTE.

    I can’t wait for the next anti-austerity, anti-Irish Water, anti-bondholder bailout, anti cronyism and corruption, round of nationwide marches. I’m half expecting the numbers to be doubled. Despite the lack of broadband and information.

    But got to admit, it got style, attempting a type of half assed cover-up in plain view in day light, given that already investigations in North and FBI.
    Irish politicans got style but little else.
    Still same old, new politics is a farce.

    Anne broadband is being rolled out to suit the water meters, that’s what’s driving it!
