Thread: Dermot Ahern saying The Gov is intent on putting the Country first

    Default Dermot Ahern saying The Gov is intent on putting the Country first

    Dermot Ahern on the 'News at One' saying that That FF in Government are putting the County first disregarding the fall out for FF.

    If he and his collegues in cabinet during the boom had put the County first and not FF we would not now be facing total ruin.

    Also in the interview he gave the impression that the developers now in Nama have to face the consequences of their reckless behaviour. The guy seems to be totally obvilious to the fact that he was part of the Government that rolled out in budget after budget the fuel that set the economy on flames.

    Finally, I am almost certain that back in the aftermath of the evoting fiasco that he stated in an RTE interview that it the €50 million down the drain was only small change in the context of the annual budget.

    He was trying to make out that a Develepor getting paid 200k by NAMA was equivelent of a Pensioner taking a cut.

    The way he tries to act like NAMA has nothing to do with the Gov is sickening.

    That's why they're fighting a court action trying to force the Government to set a data for the Bye-Elections. It's for the good of the country, not FF

    Ahern is one of the more deluded members of the Cabinet he still fancies himself for the top job, someone should tell him its Europe calling the shots now thanks to him and Fianna Failure.I'm sure the developers and bankers are really scared now he's decided to suffer some cuts.

    Self first, party close second...country distant third. This has always been the case, why would that change all of a sudden?

    It was Noel Dempsey that made that statement in the Dail.

    Sadly 18% of people still believe Fianna Fail's spin. Its complete and utter bull and spin

    What Next - Fianna Fail will protect Irish waters from pirates and make sure all pots of gold are protected against these criminals

    Of course, FF thinks that the landed oligarchy and the country are one and the same thing. The rest of us are just here on cíos.
