    Re: Taoiseach suggests new Government Jet required

    Add this to Bert's reflection on his biggest failure in office, that being to not have built a national stadium and you have to laugh. The man has lost it and probably beleives his own spin and hype that he and he alone created the wealth in this country that has allowed builders/solicitors/publicans/assorted friends of FF to buy helicopters and private jets. His political compass is switched off now he is gone and not facing the electorate again (unless he fancies the Aras, which I doubt)

    Good Quality Air Travel would be very useful to the next incumbent of the Aras. Lets face it there might not be that many other Job opportunities.

    Come on Cowen, get balls quick, he just stroked Bev in right before your eyes, you said nothing what else will he do, cut him and his appointees free now, save FF or be like Bertie spending your time covering their allegedly criminal acts or will you depend on a Mary Harney type booboo.

    Well before eveyone starts burying the Taoiseach, I would like our Government to travel in a style befitting a government. What's international best practice regarding this?

    Just confirms what I've always suspected. Bertie and the rest of them have been peeing on us all from a great height for several years past....

    Jesus, that "fleet" is an embarrassment, we're like some tinpot third world country. We must be the laughing stock of Europe

    Oh we are the laughing stock of europe allright, but it is not because we dont have modern government jets.

    Well if we give them a tripped out 747 then there is the intriuging spin-off that they might stay away on it forever.
