    Default Vincent Browne launches stinging attack on Willie O’Dea and Michael Noonan

    I have to say that I agree with Vincent Browne on this one.

    According to the weekend edition of the Limerick Leader

    "OUTSPOKEN journalist Vincent Browne has launched a stinging attack on two of Limerick’s most senior politicians for not doing enough for the deprived areas of the city.

    Speaking this week, the controversial broadcaster said he is “disappointed” by the performance of both Finance Minister Michael Noonan and former Cabinet minister Willie O’Dea during their tenure at the Government’s top table."

    They quote Browne as saying that he is

    “disappointed” by the performance of both Finance Minister Michael Noonan and former Cabinet minister Willie O’Dea during their tenure at the Government’s top table.

    “With regard to Michael Noonan and another local politician, Willie O’Dea, I think that it is disappointing - these two have been fairly major national figures in politics and you would have expected that maybe they would have spent a lot of their time ensuring that resources were devoted to the deprived areas of Limerick. I think the fact that deprivation has continued in Limerick is not a good commentary on their effectiveness,” he said."

    I agree with him 100% and is great to see this kind of honest comment finally make it through to publication in the local Limerick media. It's long past time for the local media to ask what exactly these two have done for our city.

    The irony. Browne would usually be among the first to condemn parish-pump politics.

    Is it true that some of the Limerick gangs have their roots in the travelling community?

    They won't be criticised by VB, if so

    If noonan looks after his own area, the media and Browne will attack him for looking after his own, so how do politicians win in Brownes mind

    It could be an attempt by VB to provoke Noonan to come on VB's show, which he never has as far as I know. Their fraught relations go back to at least the 2002 general election when VB gave Noonan, then FG leader, a fairly rough roasting on VB's radio programme on RTE during the election campaign.

    How many times has Willie been elected by the good people of Limerick?

    Vinny can't have it both ways...

    He spends Mon-Thurs giving out sh!t about crony politics and the parish pump bullsh!t that has this country wrecked and then here he seems to be condemning O'Dea and Noonan for failing to indulge in it...

    Browne really is a whingeing bore these days...
