    Default Longford/Westmeath TD in summons controversy.

    I have not seen a thread on this yet but Gardai are coming under increasing pressure to explain why court summonses for traffic offences were not served on Fianna Fail Longford Westmeath TD Robert Troy.

    See attached link for more details.

    The ever efficient garda could not find him in the Dail, Ballynacargy, or the many clinics he holds. Being a democratic TD I am sure a phone call to his office would have made an appointment with him,and he could have found them !

    No wonder the garda could not find Shergar.

    I blame Shatter. There's only one part-time Garda left in Longford/Westmeath and she's snowed under with work.

    why was it not sent by registered post to his office, which would be good service.
    Maybe the garda have not reached that stage of training yet , or they require a posting allowance, in order to walk to post office.

    Perhaps he was evading a shooter? No, wrong guy. Was he drunk perhaps? Nope, thats another TD. Maybe he was making false claims about delivering school projects? No, not him either. Was he dodging his taxes? No, that was someone else.

    Smoking spliff? Nope. Not having a tax clearance cert?

    Did they even try to summons him?

    Gardai not looking so great these days are they?
    Of course by "not great" I mean totally corrupt and useless.

    Garda like to get a few handy cases before they go off for their tea.

    Pressure on gardai to explain failure to serve summonses on TD - Independent.ie

    There is no need of an explanation because it is obvious. Fianna Fail & their Gardai friends

    FF and the guards are very close and work hand in glove. Most people assume they are close to FG for historical reasons, foundation of force and all that. But they are not close to FG as present row with Shatter illustrates.
    FF gave them everything they wanted, overtime ad lib ( 2 guards earned 80,000 each 3 years on overtime alone); FF gave them boot allowance, island allowance, dog allowance, bicycle allowance, rent allowance etc. And also an allowance to compensate them for not getting an allowance, believe it or not
