    I sent my own complaint in. It read as follows:

    "JASIS JACKIE! Retire?! Sure you can't be doin' that! Don't go, Jackie, don't go"

    And I included some pictures of myself covered in corse cut marmalade.

    quote from paper " danny had an illegal quarry while he was deputy mayor and while michael was mayor. he had no planning for it and dug more than 3 meters in dept, while the dept for agricultural use is less than 1 meter. then danny chaired a council meeting while enforcement notices were served on himself and he was discussing how to prosecute to other 14 illegal quarries in kerry.it is blatent that he used his position as deputy mayor to get himself off of a prosecution and also be able to do what he wants. cronin claims that he breached ethics so he sent it to the same commission that investigated patrick o donoghue who is now going before a jury

    I am giving my point of view, which i am entitled to. I don't know whether you personally know the raes or just if you see them let our county down on a national level but they are fools. Does that clarify your problem!

    Whoa, whoa whoa! Bulldog!
    You're clearly on to something here but you have to step back a bit and tell us what this was all about.

    Imagine for a moment you are talking to people who never heard of Kerry or the Healy Raes. People who need to be told everything in simple words and short sentences.
    But people who don't believe what you say unless you give references, preferably with links.

    So tell your story from the start will you?
    This will be worth your while, because belive me, if people on here get a sniff of a theiving politician, they will go after it like bloodhounds.

    Excerpt:
    (The Kerryman
    Wednesday June 18 2008)

    The public officials and politicians watchdog, The Standards in Public Office Commission, has received complaints about Cllr Healy Rae and Director of Planning, Michael McMahon.

    The complaints centre on a claim that Danny Healy Rae chaired a council meeting that discussed illegal quarrying when he himself was the subject of an enforcement order from Kerry County Council.

    It is also claimed that Mr McMahon misled councillors by deliberately failing to include Danny Healy Rae on a list of people who were the subject of enforcement proceedings for illegal quarrying and excavation.

    The complaints were made to the commission by Cllr Brendan Cronin. The commission confirmed this week that it was considering the complaint and will make a decision on whether there are grounds for an official investigation.

    I don't have a problem with you and I don't know or support the Rae's, however I did notice that you are a new member and one of the first things you did was is start a negative thread about the Rae's and hence I wondered if you had a problem with them.

    Regarding the Rae's policies some are sensible, some are done for vote catching, some give the appearance of feathering their own nest, but the vast majority are of parish pump, nimby and stupid variety.
