    If I walked in to a local bank and stole a €1000 – is there a possibility that they wouldn’t bother hunting me down and prosecuting me for the crime?

    2 chances, bud..

    The banks didn’t steal because they were hungry unfortunate street urchins to be pitied, they stole from hard – pressed working people because they were greasy fupps, just like any other parasitic criminal organization..

    The other day a woman was jailed for two months for not paying for a packet of pringles. The courts are full of the wrong people.

    Here’s another poster headline he could use
    ‘Welfare department idiots cheat us all’ €501m I believe is the running total of these highly paid yokes. 40% above the private sector.

    Here’s another one. ‘Mileage cheating ministers cheat us all’

    Here’s another one. Chief Whip unlawful payments cheat us all’

    Dont see what it has to do with him, there is a Chinese wall between politics and the courts , so If a crime has been committed the Gardai will surely investigate , whatever politicians think. Thats how it works, isnt it?
