    From Bernadette Gorman, the woman speaking on the Sean O'Rourke show who actually worked in the Dept of Social Security for 30 years as an inspector. I'd believe someone who worked in the area sooner than a failed minister. She claims these figures are wildly exaggerated and in no way is 200 million or anything like it wasted on welfare fraud. She herself claims that two thirds of the projected figure is down to administrative errors.

    Looking across the various threads recently and the upsurge of activity from certain posters i reckon poor Leo must not be getting great feedback from the FG grassroots and this is just a stunt to try and big up his profile as a hard man.......
    It's obvious and desperately cynical stuff that could work with a certain blueshirt mindset. Hopefully it will backfire and people will see through it for the cynical publicity and ultimately waste of time and money stunt that it is, but we're talking about solely blueshirts here that he's trying to impress.
