    Default Willie O'Dea becomes come a director of a British company called Union Jack Oil.

    Its becoming more and more obvious that moneybags Willie O'Dea is on the way to being pensioned off by Fianna Fail.

    A couple of weeks ago we had him waffling on about writing his memoirs. A literary work that local wags suggest may be more in the style of Alan Partridge than Alan Clark.

    Now we learn in today's Sindo that he has "become a director of a British company called Union Jack Oil".

    http://www.independent.ie/national-n...l-3367827.html

    According to the article O'Dea regards investing in shares as "a hobby" and "Mr O'Dea, who also writes for the Sunday Independent, has investments in a range of exploration companies and, like other investors, he is a "follower" of entrepreneur John Teeling, a long-time promoter of oil, gas and mining firms in Ireland and abroad, as well as the founder of the Cooley Distillery, which was recently sold to the American drinks giant Jim Beam."

    Many would think that he is preparing for his departure from politics.

    Between his investments and tax payer funded pensions he can look forward to a very comfortable retirement unlike many of his constituents.

    I hope for his business partners sake that he is better at looking after their investments than he has been for looking after Limerick City.

    The fact of the matter is that after 30 years as a TD, O'Dea has achieved little or nothing for limerick and will be leaving no worthwhile legacy behind. He will soon be forgotten.

    Does one have to sign an affidavit to become a company director?

    Follow the money in this country and it ALWAYS goes back to state support, be it tax breaks, state contracts and the manipulation of markets for the gombeen class.

    Some obsession you have there.

    This may sound silly but are you by any chance called Michael Noonan?

    Time to sell any shares one might have in UJO.

    But not by you williewatch.

    Won't you be sitting at his graveside, pining for the days when he gave you something to talk about?

    Not really, Yer man out in the County, Niall Collins and that fella over in Clare Timmy Dooley are aspiring O'Dea's.

    They are already generating much mirth.

    So my next incarnation will be either as Collinswatch or Dooleywatch.

    But there is a small bit of time to run with Williewatch yet.

    I hope this puts your mind at rest

    Somebody should inform Union Jack Oil, that while Willie has climbed many greasy polls, and has a very slick way of presenting himself, he probably knows very little about Hydrocarbon Exploration.

    It is evnts like this that inform us that politicians and the political state, both have far too much influence over business.
    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.

    Is it permitted for a sitting TD to hold such a position?

    O'Dea to flag Union Jack Oil directorship with Dail - National News - Independent.ie

    According to the article O'Dea regards investing in shares as "a hobby" and "Mr O'Dea, who also writes for the Sunday Independent, has investments in a range of exploration companies and, like other investors, he is a "follower" of entrepreneur John Teeling, a long-time promoter of oil, gas and mining firms in Ireland and abroad, as well as the founder of the Cooley Distillery, which was recently sold to the American drinks giant Jim Beam."
