Given that this is supposedly an Irish politics forum it's struck me as strange that there's not a lot of discussion about the fact that our government is dependent on a convicted tax fraudster to make up the numbers.

In an amazing twist of irony this came about because a minister was less that open and transparent in dealings surrounding a telecoms contract - 25 years after Moriarty started looking at Lowry's role in the mobile licensing contract.

The news is chock full of presidential election debates, Brexit and, of course a great deal of Trump basing, but there's hardly been a peep about the fact that the week FF and FG get together to divvy out the spoils of recovery that the government is dependent on the biggest sleazebag in the Dail.

You can't blame the good voters of Tipperary for FG being so desperate to cling to power that they'll rely on a convicted tax fraudster - his conviction occurred after the last election, but BEFORE FG lost the numbers in the Dail.

Of course FG will say they've no deal with Lowry, but the very fact that he's still out of jail despite Moriarty and the tax conviction says otherwise.

You can be sure that whatever underthe table deal fg have with lowry is based on mutually assured destruction cemented by whatever dirt they have on each other yes the tax conviction was after the last election but the bribery by dob was well known every time they voted after moriaty
