    Default Fidelma Healy Eames fined €1,850 - time for FG to kick her out?

    Senator fined for repeatedly driving without road tax




    SENATOR Fidelma Healy Eames has been fined €1,850 after pleading guilty to four road traffic offences.

    The senator, from Maree, Oranmore in Galway, pleaded guilty at Galway District Court today to three changes of driving without tax and one further charge of failure to display a tax disc.

    A fifth charge of making a false declaration was withdrawn by the State. This charge had been described by Judge Mary Fahy as the most serious.



    Is it time for FG to kick her out?

    It's starting to be a little boring now.

    Many politicians seem to be corrupt. Some are thieves in their personal lives and most connive with theft from the citizen on a grand scale. Some do both.

    Does she also automatically incur penalty points for each offence? If so, she must be approaching a ban.

    As penalty points were brought in for road safety purposes they should not be misused for non payment of road tax which does not endanger anyone on the road. This would be akin to revenue misusing the CAB legislation which was brought in to catch drug dealers not tax evaders.

    Are you accusing Fidelma Healy-Eames of any of those? Because your statement is very broad and sweeping.

    FG suddenly cannot start booting out Senators with the governments majority now down to pretty non-existent thanks to their putting a load of whimps in as 'Independent' Senators. FG are stuck with FHE.

    Its not being tolerated, though. She was fined €1,850. What would you have preferred?
