    Default Sunday World calls Willie O'Dea a hypocrite

    City Slicker, Columnist for the Sunday World newspaper, ranting, funny, sarcastic articles

    An article in this weeks Sunday World had the headline

    "WILLIE SETS US UP FOR A BIG FÁIL
    Now it's the country he is misleading"


    In the caption under his photograph they refer to Willie O'Dea as a "hypocrite"

    Neither are they buying into Willie O'Dea's bogus attack on the bankers.


    "But, get this, we'll borrow €200 billion over the next ten years to pay for our non-banking deficit.

    That's practically an Anglo sized hole in our budget every year for ten years and it has absolutely NOTHING to do with the banks.

    It's there because Bertie Ahern, Brian Cowen, Mary Harney, Charlie McCreevy, Brian Lenihan and Willie O'Dea are incompetent.

    They not only fuelled the bubble and spent money we didn't have, they committed themselves to spending tens of billions of Euro we would NEVER have. Just to win elections and get a Garda driven Merc each .

    If Willie O'Dea wants to start singing 'We're not going to take it' he'd better do it in front of a mirror.

    Misleading the High Court is one thing.

    Misleading an entire country takes some balls."


    And whereas the Sindo refrer to their buddy O'Dea as the "poll topping politician" the Sunday World describe him in the following terms

    "You'll remember Willie as the minister with the dodgy memory who had to resign from Cabinet for making a false statement under oath and misleading the High Court."

    Default What does Willie O'Dea consider to be important

    Reading the Limerick Leader today makes me wonder what Willie O'Dea considers to be important. Two of today's stories in the Limerick Leader raise interesting questions in relation to this.

    The first story concerns calls for Limericks two local authorities to purchase Sean McGowan's boat Tess

    Appeal for Sean McGowan's history-making boat to be saved for Limerick - Limerick Leader

    "Deputy Willie O'Dea said it would be a "travesty" if the vessel left the country, as two offers have been made by rowers outside the country for the full asking price."

    and

    ""I'd love to see it staying in Limerick," said Deputy O'Dea. "Perhaps the city council and county council could make a joint offer, or the regeneration agencies. It would be a travesty to have the boat located elsewhere when the man that achieved the feat is here in Limerick, and all his family have been involved in rowing for generations."


    On the the same day the Limerick Leader are running another story titled "Jobless figures continue to rise in Limerick with 23,415 on live register"


    http://www.limerickleader.ie/news/Jo...ise.6516613.jp

    which states

    "THE number of people out of work in Limerick now numbers nearly 23,500, "frightening" new figures show.
    According to figures just released by the Central Statistics Office, some 23,415 people are now on the live register - with 16,490 of them
    in the city. The figures show a month-on-month rise of 288 in the city, and 267 in the county overall, reflecting a number of small-scale job losses."

    Yet there is no comment or press release from Willie O'Dea in relation to this at all. Has Willie any thoughts on this at all?

    This is the same Dilly O'Wee that left the Asgard rot at the bottom of the Bay of Biscay, taking the insurance money and running.

    Nice picture of Willie down the road from where I used to live in Moyross. Wille never raised a concern about Moyross and even said at the time we had enough Gardai.
    John Fitzgerald was sent in by the Govet, basicially said it was an emergence the whole area need demolition and we needed 100 extra gardai immediately, simply to stabilise the situation. He is a waster! No doubt he was good for getting medical cards, but for anything of substance forget it!

    Dont forget the funerals. Willie has now entered the realm of those FFers who want to be in power and Opposition at same time. He is hiding behind his moustache.

    For sheer brass neck Willie O'Dea's promotional piece in yesterdays Sunday Independent is right up there with the best of them.

    in the course of it he lectures us that ..........

    "The sad reality is that so many in political life are prepared to adjust their output to suit what they think will get an easy headline, rather than to reflect what they think is right. The price is a coarsening of debate."

    This from Willie O'Dea? LOL

    No Willie,see below for the kind of thing that leads to the coarsening of debate, not to forget the added effect of a false high court affidavit.

    "WOD: While occasionally we send out letters to planning applicants we have never been involved with anybody who shot anybody. or robbed banks, or kidnapped people. I suppose I'm going a bit too far when I say this
    but I'd like to ask Mr Quinlivan is the brothel still closed?

    MD: Is the brothel still closed?

    WOD: Is the brothel still closed?

    MD: What brothel `is that, Willie?

    WOD: Do you know the brothel they found in his name and in his brother's name down in Clancy Strand?

    MD: I never heard about that.

    WOD: Did you not hear that? You better check with your sources. There was a house owned by him that was rented out and they found two ladies of the night operating in there in the last couple of weeks.

    MD: Right. The other one I wanted to ask you about Willie was were you disappointed to see Noreen Ryan in the witness box?

    WOD: I don't want to talk about that ..."

    Well yeah - but a statement of the bleedin obvious that most of the media obviously don't bleedin state. So surely every reiteration is to be welcome.

    Default Willie O'Dea silent on economic collapse of Limerick

    I see Willie O'Dea managed to push himself into the photo opportunity at the the opening of the delayed Limerick motorway (yes, the motorway that sank into the bog). Definitely a great man for the personal publicity main chance.

    Its almost funny if you think about it. There is the junior minister Peter Power pushed into the background while the disgraced ex minister takes what he regards as his rightful position in the front row.



    But Willie avoids any comment on the rapid economic decline of Limerick.

    Limerick Businesses Closed - boards.ie

    Come to think of it, Willie O'Dea has also been silent on Limerick unemployment, downgrading of Shannon airport etc.

    So, what exactly has Willie "the coffin chaser" O'Dea being doing at the cabinet table other than building up his ministerial pension?

    Its time for change. Its time for Willie to get off the stage.


    The laugh is on us the Limerick voters
