    Default The nose-in-trough thread :)

    I think at this stage in our economic "journey" we should have a thread dedicated to our "high rolling" (aka theiving scumbag) banksters and politicians etc...

    Perhaps I'll start

    Exhibit A: Ho Chi Quinn who this morning told us he is unable to do anything about those hacks like himself who will retire to humungous pensions of €3-4 million after a "career" of decades nosy-in-troughy...

    He was first elected a Labour Party TD for Dublin South–East at the 1977 general election. Quinn was at this time quite associated with environmental issues being the first professional architect and town planner ever elected to the Dáil. He served as environment spokesperson for the Labour Party and was very close to the party leader, Frank Cluskey, whom he had voted for in the leadership contest of 1977. He lost his seat at the 1981 general election and was elected to the 15th Seanad on the Industrial and Commercial Panel. He was re-elected as TD at the February 1982 general election and has retained his seat since.

    Wasn't there controversy in the mid 1990s about an Advertising firm that is owned by a member of the Quinn family aristocracy getting a massive state contract ?
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Let's face it. A lot of ordindary Irish people have their snout in the trough and are happily troughing away.

    Most people these days see government as a means to enrich themselves. That's why we have so many quangos, 'charities', NGOs and other types of grievance groups.

    Indeed.

    Witness B: Enda (cute-boy) Kenny: Enda is still on a humoungous €200,000 despite the fact that he reckons 'we are all in this together'

    Lets see how long Inda has been nose-in-trough...

    Kenny has been a Teachta Dála (TD) for Mayo since 1975, having succeeded his father Henry Kenny.[2] He is the longest-serving TD currently in Dáil Éireann, which makes him the incumbent Father of the Dáil.
    WOW! 1975, so Inda is a world class nose-in-trougher, and ne'er a blush to be seen...

    ...you really should have a few Inda
