For Gods sake leave him where he is. A minister of Finance who brought down a government and lost power over the price of a pair of shoes. Born on a big farm educated in Clongowes, simply to grand to talk to the one socialist in the Dail on the evening of the vote.
Thats exactly why we would need him. To keep the Labour Party and spending in check.

What was more important than the peace process to concern the Three Stooges.
The Three Stooges (pictured below) were obsessed with the "Peace Pcocess". While it was (just about) forgivable for Adams & Hume, it was ridiculous that Reynolds (1) became so obsessed with toing the Irish nationalist line that he (one) became oblivious to unionist reaction and (two) ciompletly missed what was going on under his own nose and which led to his downfall.

Would that be the same Lowry who stood beside Bruton and called him "My best friend forever" that we're talking about here?
It says a lot about a man that he is still someone's best friend even after they've sacked you.

Then again. It says a lot about the other man too....

He's not much of a mate the way he sacked Lowry as soon as there was a whiff off him. Didn't want to know him after that. What a bast@ard. Bert would never do that to one of his mates.
What about the cheque for £15,000 that Denis gave him in the Glenview Hotel at Timmons selection, it was widely written about at the early stages of the Tribunal. :eek::eek:

Is Bruton the man FG dumped and got Noonan who led them landslide in 2002 ? FGers have a habit of only recognising the talents of leaders after they've dumped them - Dukes another example. And Bruton was very unpopular, FF and others like Reynolds dubbed him unionist. Having said that he was a good man , pity he was not re elected in 1997 and we got Bert,and the rest is history. Ex Leaders do not come back, he is doing well for himself as he is.

He's spending a lot more time on the airwaves at the moment than Kenny is.

FO Blueshirt with your pro-capitalist anti-worker ideals. Sorry FF/FG disqualified from public office for sheer inability to show leadership, integrity or to put nation before own ego driven self interests.

Tell us all about it. Fairytale time with Dan....
I'll let you do the research. If you are prepared to stand up for one of the three stooges or maybe them all you should check it out yourself and it is no fairytale.
:shock::shock::shock:

Ps. If you have the guts maybe you could tell us what you find out.

I watched him the other night on VB and thought he was the consummate statesman. He did not seek to play the blame game. Although if I were him and I had left the economy in the state he did only to now have it in tatters I think I would be bulling.

Come back John, all is forgiven. Oh and bring Dukesy with you.
