    Yep, definitely knows which politicians to pay.

    This indicates that Siteserv was the preferred bidder for the Bord Gais contract, but there was never any indication the services would include those announced this week by the Government - or am I mistaken?

    If Denis O'Brien won a €1 Scratch Card on the Lotto, there'd be pages on P.ie and the media speculating on some sort of conspiracy or dodgy dealing!
    how do you feel about the findings of the moriarty tribunal? how do you feel about the deal he did with Iarnroid Eireann to run cable along the tracks? how do you feel about he controlling Newstalk, Today Fm, Spin Sw and other radio stations, IN&M and a number of regional newspapers
    admire him? i despise him!

    Then, within weeks, the government had announced that a subsidiary of the company an O'Brien-controlled company bought, had been awarded the contract, without tender, for the provision of Appliance Servicing, Boiler Installation and Related Services?
    Deja Vue. Are FG giving us the 3 Fs? FoFF just like FF did. So much for change and transparency. I cant see Labour backbenchers putting up with this codology for much longer.

    FG are suddenly looking as if they have a lot of explaining to do !!!
    FG may have explaining to do but we as a nation have to question our relationship with people like D O'B

    the night he appeared on the Late Late Show and regailed us about how he got the mobile phone deal and he was lauded by the audience. it beared little resemblence to what came out in the Moriarty report
    Lowry being in a position to be elected to the dail (never mind being elected), D O'B attending the economic forum, Ivor Callelly and his expences. as a society we seem to accept all of this corruption, and some even admire O'Brien!!!!!!!!!!

    the only difference between FG and FF does indeed seem to be who they do business with, and not the ethics of the busineess they deal in.

    the punchestown tent and enda being embarressed into handing back that cheque he got on the golf course are ample evidence of that.

    wonder who the point man for DOB is now lowrys gone ?
