    Default Garret Fitzgerald legacy still an anoyance?

    Garret Fitzgerald doubled the national deficit when he got to power in the 80's. Why the hell should anybody listen to this old man in relation to NAMA. Time for Garret to go away and stop causing problems for Fine Gael and everybody else.:x

    Any chance of you heeding your own advice and going away?

    Am not aware of any legacy from this political lightweight other than his intense desire to negate National interests and to appease British and Unionist interests.

    This is not surprising from a man whose fathers principal legacy as Minister of Defence was to alienate large segments of the officer cadre of the Irish army,and whose main interest was in trying to teach them the correct usage of knives and forks!

    Well considering the army deafness scam, maybe he was trying to avoid compensation charges for facial damage.

    Yeah, Richard said senior instead of sub-ordinated.
    Anyone who knew what he was talking about recognised it as a slip of the tongue, particularly as he was describing what the government had done with Anglo when told to do so by the EU.

    No fear that Cowen and very limited company would ever admit to a mistake.

    It's somewhat amusing to watch the wannabe republican brigade with their usual predictability seize on ridiculous threads like these. I think it makes them feel good about themselves to have a good oul FG bash now and again.

    This post is not without a certain amount of ridiculousness itself.
    Fine Gael has always been a republican party.
