    Default Photographs of state cars and the cronies that use and abuse them

    Noticed many of them all being driven into Farmleigh tonight.

    Real life photos of our pampered aristocracy using them would be better, but this should start us off.


    MERCEDES S-CLASS: Brian Cowen, Bertie Ahern, President McAleese


    AUDI A6: Mary Coughlan, Mary Harney, Noel Dempsey, Dermot Ahern, John O'Donoghue


    TOYOTA PRIUS: John Gormley, Eamon Ryan


    MERCEDES E-CLASS: Albert Reynolds, Brian Lenihan, Martin Cullen, Mary Hanafin

    Luigi,

    Do we not run the risk of being outed as anarchists with this sort of thing. Even Padraig Flynn with the three houses had to live somewhere.

    Furthermore you are going to have to apply these same standards to the new government, and logically then, these metaphorical houses you're building, will be divided against themselves and can only fall into a quagmire of hypocritical filth.

    We had the same thing two weeks ago with people giving out about Minister Calleary flying home to Knock from government business when the truth is that Taoiseach Kenny will have to do the same thing to the same airport in the same constituency in the near future.

    Are we not demeaning this forum and the name of politics in general with this carry on you're in to?

    This is the type of vehicle Sinn Fein are most interested in seeing the insides of.

    Why would anyone with a state car need to fly to Mayo? Tonight's news showed what's wrong with this crowd - none of them thought of car pooling going to a meeting to discuss cutbacks at Farmleigh - why not meet in Merrion Street?
