Also how much are half decent Tokyo Rentals, I'm sure they are probably much higher than even Dublin and that says it all!
The elite always look after themselves but plenty of fools still vote for them.The title says a lot
The IT have scant details as they are re-reporting the Irish Mail on Sunday exclusive
Irish diplomats home in Tokyo costing 46,000 a month
In my experience of our Sir Humprhreycrats ...the ones in Merrion Street and Iveagh House are the most adept at feathering their own nests
Our Ambassador's residence in Tokyo does not, imo require prestige factor
Plenty suitably located secure dwellings are available for much lower rent
Comrade Anne Barrington
Is a big green jersey wearer ...interviews with her show her to be nearly all about commercial relations
IJCC » Ambassador of Ireland to Japan H.E. Anne Barrington featured in EUROBiZ Japan
And...they literally have a green jersey page
Team Ireland in Japan
AND the fecker runs out of all day meetings on Fridays with other diplomats at 2pm because he has "other business" to deal with... Yeah right.. getting to the Hamptons before the rush starts.... every other diplomat stayed in the meeting...I was mortified as an Irish person.Is this not par for the course for Iveagh House? It has . after all, remained a hereditary entry criteria maintained since it provided refuge for the displaced from the Castle in 22 and the CnG government upon ascension of Dan Breen & co in the 30's.....
Here in NY the consul general (not ambassador....thats in DC) has a very fine high ceiling apartment with rooftop located handily in relation to the consular offices......quite why an apartment of suitable size to throw parties is needed so close to offices with a function room of a size suitable to throwing parties, in a town full of irish owned restaurants & hotels of a suitable size to throw parties is beyond me .........but I have enjoyed the free alcohol when Ive been - though diageo & irish distillers tend to over represented...
The way it works in Ireland is that as soon as you vote for someone they make themselves "elite".The elite always look after themselves but plenty of fools still vote for them.
The couple said the newspaper had violated Mr Miliano’s privacy and caused him stress and embarrassment. “While attacking civil servants may now be considered fair game, attacking their families crosses a line which is unacceptable,” said Ms Barrington. “We are considering our options on this.”
“It’s quite rare to find an apartment in Tokyo with a huge entertainment space,” said an Embassy spokesman. “In the rental market, we feel we have good value.”
1) In my , limited, experience spouses and partners of irish DoFA staff get too much consideration and overly generous treatment , with some bad optics at least form teh outside in terms of appointments & frequency of travel "home"", relative to the partners of ex-pats management working for MNCs ( dont wish to turn this into the tiresome public/ private - but thats just my experience...)Ah yes ...taking a leaf from the KGB playbook ...find a detail of the story you don't like...and play the victim
Diplomat may go to ombudsman over reports on Tokyo house
