    Default The Willie O'Dea autobiography

    Has anyone noticed the absence of williewatch? Is it possible that he's ghostwriting his favourite politician's autobiography, announced in this weekend's Leader, before this uncaring Government delists political memoirs as works of artistic value that qualify for tax-free status?

    It would be an interesting 'auto-biography' of O'Dea if williewatch wrote it, considering williewatch is a shinner supporter.

    Don't you have to be able to remember stuff you did to write an autobiography?

    Must be a FF thing, Willie couldn't remember details of an affidavit he swore for the High Court.
    Albert Reynolds could not appear before one of the tribunals because of an unreliable memory, yet afterwards published his memoirs.

    You haven't read Willie's book yet. Maybe it starts ... "Since as far back as I can remember, sometime after breakfast ..."

    Willie O Dea will be remembered as one of the most qualifed members to be in Cabinet who seemed afraid to sound intelligent and clear headed because it might give the wrong impression to his many voters in the sprawling estates of Limerick. When he was minister he never used the state car. All Willie ever thought about was the Parish Pump and the votes in the house. Time will tell if he ever did anything for Limerick except make sure that Johnny and Maggie had their medical cards.

    This type of politician is on the way out - but having sat as a student when he was an academic at UL he is very bright, has a photographic memory and never reached his real potential in politics. Just a pity because he is a decent man - too humble for his own good.

    First they get rid of the Shannon stopover. Now williewatch moves his thread out of Limerick. Is there no end to the running down of Limerick's status?

    Hello, is that you Willie?
    War doesn't work. Give peace a chance.
