    Default Darragh O'Brien and demands about cronyism

    The Irish Times reports that Darragh O'Brien is demanding to know why a "labour crony"
    had been appointed to a job without an interview taking place.

    Fair play to him for doing this.

    This couldnt be the same Darragh O'Brien who Brian Cowen appointed to the senate.

    Brian Cowen gives party pal a Seanad seat · TheJournal.ie.

    This guy doesnt do irony, does he ?

    Unless we stop them now.

    I would have thought he would have approved of that sort of thing. It was FF standard practice for years.

    It's not fair when it's a different party.

    Reminds me of Ivor Callely attacking Dick Spring over abuse of public money re. his government jet hopping.

    Imagine Callely actually had the balls to do that.
