      A spoilt rich kid suddenly realising a Walter mitty world is about to come crashing down around his head
      A couple of years inside will do him the world of good
      His mammy must be absolutely devastated over the shame he has brought the family
      If i was her I would forget spin and let him, learn the biggest lesson in life
      Tough love

        or they could take the view that he’s an 18 year old who made a mistake – and deserves to be given a break and another chance (irrespective of who his parents are)

          It’s a bit of weed. It should be legal. A case of youthful over exuberance. He’s likely on the spectrum pulling a silly stunt like that. What his mother is doing admitting his guilt is, however, unforgivable. Only thinking of herself. Should have kept her mouth shut except to support him.

          1. SOQ

            How did an 18 year old get his hands on that sort of money if he wasn’t in the game already?

            Although mammy trying to make media capital out of it is distasteful to say the least. If he goes to jail she has already made his life a lot harder but I suppose saving the brand is more important.

            @rep. Along with a picture? All of which just happened to get plastered on the front page of every newspaper. Hmm.

          3. Rep

            The fact that the son of one of the most famous tv chefs, who is part of a Irish culinary giant, got caught with €30k worth of grass means it was always going to get plastered on the front page of the papers. You seriously think that they did this to get media attention?

            Go away out of it with your “on the spectrum” nonsense.
            Don’t go diagnosing this kid with a medical condition you are not qualified to or even in a position to assess. You’re proof that a little knowledge can be dangerous.

            Also why should it be legal? The burden of proof for that should be on the people who want it to be illegal. It is a plant.

            Maybe it’s the spectrum that runs from “a little bollix” to “a right bollix”.

          30000 equals about 3750 street value. Its just weed , someone has to supply it because of the prohibition. god bless him. The x8 inflated police estimate is never questioned. To put it another way. you buy €100 bag of weed . the fuzz pinch you around the corner, you get charged with having €800 worth of weed. how long until the pigs start saying its 10 times the actual amount? 12 times? 15 times? basically meaning you can charge anyone with anything if you want, whenever you want. Hopefully this arrest actually helps the cannabis cause. the more poshos that get caught and let go, the faster they’ll have to make it legal.

          STRING HIM UP!
          The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, according to my mates who know people who know people.

        You’ve clearly never been incarcerated if you think any part of that experience could be good for a human being. Chill out. Smoke a splif.

          1. scottser

            he’s been at it a while, it seems. it would be fair to say he’s made a nice few quid making that bad call a number of times.

        prison for these kind of crimes doesn’t teach them a lesson, it gets them to make friends with criminals and to be more fupped up by the time they’re released.

          1. Cian

            Okay – that makes sense – legalise the weed!

            *I re-read this and it might sound sarcastic – but it isn’t.

          2. Rob_G

            I do think that weed should be either decriminalised or legalised, but this isn’t someone who was caught with a 10-spot they were going to smoke themselves – it is someone who got <€30k* together, and invested it in illegal drugs, which he was then going to supply to other people.

            I wonder how he at 18 he managed to get the thousands of euro required to purchase a bulk order; I wonder if the people he bought the weed from are happy-clappy pot growers, or psychotic gangsters who also do a bit of pimping and the occasional murder?

            *even accepting for Gardaí's mad figures, it was still a few grand

          3. Starina

            I assume he got the 30k from a combo of mammy and smaller deals. He’s definitely an eejit.
            If it was legal, there wouldn’t be psychotic murderers in the path of grower-to-consumer.

          4. Rob_G

            No, I agree with you; but the case for ‘it should be legal’ is not the same as ‘he should be let off scot-free’, is what I am saying.

    2. dylaad

      Which has nothing to do with Rachel Allen or her son. Feel a bit sorry for them really,hope he have too rough a time.

  1. missred

    Ah jaysus now. Silly kid trying to smuggle in 30k of cannabis. Says it’s from the US, either from the dark web or a legal state. Mammy must be morto

    1. Lilly

      I’m surprised he tried to import it. Thought it would be home grown between the parsley and the rosemary.

      1. The Old Boy

        Ha! There’s no-one in the country better placed to have greenhouses full of “exotic herbs” without arousing suspicion.

        1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

          Those money-mad fuppers charge for you to nose round their herb garden. And that’s not a euphemism.

          1. The Old Boy

            To paraphrase Nancy Mitford, ordinary people have never known the indignity of having to admit the public to view one’s own home for a shilling each.

          2. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

            I think one of the Allens was done for dodgy taxes recently too. One of Myrtle’s daughters.

    The factions behind the destruction of the labour parties whole morality and principles the same blairites and those who destroyed every principle that labour stood for got the biggest shock of their lives when Corbyn won now trying to return the party to its perverted past
    Corbyn is neither antiemetic or a dressy up clone of Tory boy if he is serious of taking the next election to become PM
    The grass roots labour supporters brought him to where he is and he must be loyal to what won him leadership
    The top of the labour elite betrayed labours principles and Corbyn needs to clean house or expect more knives in his back than ceazar
    The future of the labour party rests with a purge to rid its self of the cancer of those elements
    And he owes this to the electorate

    1. Cú Chulainn

      He is not a very bright bear and he cannot lead Labour to victory over the tories, so what’s the point.

  3. Giggidygoo

    So the FF TDs are furious with Martin? Well, simple question then. Why don’t these ‘furious’ TDs take the mantle and become men (mostly), and vote with SF? Wouldn’t that bring the Duke of Cork’s leadership to the fore?
    Oh no though – like their leader the ‘furious’ TDs will march half way up the hill, and back down again. A pack of FF cowards.

    1. MaryLou's ArmaLite

      Why don’t they vote with SF you ask? because no reasonable person wants to be associated with gangsters, thugs and murders.

      1. Brother Barnabas

        gangsters and thugs, fair enough. but it’s a bit much to accuse FF of murder … unless murdering an economy counts?

        1. MaryLou's ArmaLite

          SF is the party of gangsters, thugs and murderers. FF are mostly goombeens but with a rotten core.

      2. Giggidygoo

        Your idea of reasonable people is what? Enablers Mary Boyle, Fr. Niall Molloy cover ups? , and as a matter of interest, google ‘Fianna Fail Waterford Child Molester’.
        FF are a party of cowards. They’re not even FF anymore. They’re FG’s afterbirth.

        1. MaryLou's ArmaLite

          in your mind does that justify/excuse the decades hurt caused by SF and their thugs, or is this just some whataboutery ?

  4. SOQ

    Extraordinary behaviour within the British Labour party. Squabbling over Israel and Palestine while Corybn refused to back the peoples vote on Brexit. Fiddling while Rome burns comes to mind.

    1. MaryLou's ArmaLite

      exactly, the Tory’s are in disarray and Labour cannot make capital because he cannot/will not put this issue to bed. If a bunch of anti-Semitic hard left loons take power in a bost Brexit Britain, then it is truly fupped.

      1. Ollie Cromwell

        Indeed.
        Labour have just elected Yasmine Dar to their NEC with the most votes of any candidate.
        Every year she openly supports the anniversary of the Iranian Islamic Revolution.
        This,Corbyn’s ineptitude at rooting out anti-Semitism and long-planned constituency boundary changes are why Labour won’t win the next election.
        Corbyn isn’t the danger – it’s the thugs,Trots and insidious scumbags he’s surrounded himself with who are.

    1.5kg of cannabis….€30,000? I don’t know what it does cost but it’s definitely not that much is it?

    1. Termagant

      It’s about half that. Think the current street price is about €11-12 a gram. Weed is light, less is more.

          1. millie st murderlark

            She needs a hearty Sunday roast. At least two of them, bless her, the scrawny, fashionable she-devil.
