    Default State of the Nation. Who is Irelands Lionel Asbo?

    The dumbing down of Irish culture and society has continued apace now for some years with RTE in the vanguard.

    English author Martin Amis has produced a scathing novel 'Lionel Asbo" about a lowlife chav who wins the lottery and then joins the wealthy classes to fling his bling at all and sundry.

    Do posters think we have equivalent types in Irish society who,suddenly enriched and having come from allegedly deprived backgrounds then corrode said society with feckless, vulgar and loutish conduct?

    Good post there FM.

    My answer to your question : Bertie Ahern.

    He won the lotto too - he became the leader of FFinished.

    And then there were all the lodgements - for which we still have not received fully credible answers.

    Mini-Lotto wins each one of them.
    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.

    Birtie Ahern has already said before he left power that, ''We Will See how many of you will get there''. Oh my God what are we going to do ?
    No mention of Mumbai Advocates. You're making progress.

    But was Ahern from an allegedly deprived background?

    There are a number of figures in the Irish arts and entertainment industry who certainly have dumbed down things a lot.

    In the political arena Tony Gregory , Noel Brown and Haughy come to mind.

    You are correct. And dumbing down was supported by Pravda all the way, over the mad decade.

    I also think that Ireland's legal drug business were heavily involved in dumbing the country down, in the 1990s.

    To the point that we turned into Arter's little drunken hell hole.
