    Default Vincent Browne 1.11.2010

    Fionnan Sheehan bringing the actions of a politician's spouse into the political arena. (Gilmore and his missus)

    I presume this gives us free reign to link him to his missus and the scumbags of destiny.

    Do you mean the story is not true then or just that we shouldn't be told about it?

    Its just that its a bit of a non story. Mrs G sold a field to the OPW for 250 grand, the field was independently valued and Mrs G sold the field for what OPW offered. No impropriety. BTW I believe the field was due to be used for a new school. Have the Dept of Education built it yet? If not that would be the real scandal here!

    I thought Bertie "I won all that dodgy cash on the horses" Ahern was crying when his family were brought up when he was being investigated?

    It was 500 odd thousand and that's not the story. The first story is Mr Gilmore & his party calling out landowners and developers for selling land at inflated prices during the boom while his wife was doing exactly the same thing, except in her case not just screwing another developer but screwing the state instead.

    The second story is the hypocrites here who if this was a case involving a FF leaders wife, would be all over this with cries of corruption and calls for a tribunal, but instead are busy saying, no story here, nothing to see at all, it's all the Indo's fault. All we're short of so far is some eejit with a theory that it was all a FF setup to try to show Gilmore for the hypocrite he is.
