Michael Lowry to pen book on controversial 30-year career - National News - Independent.ie

CONTROVERSIAL Independent TD Michael Lowry has revealed that his new year's resolution is to write a book about his career in politics.

Mr Lowry made the announcement in what he described as a "light-hearted" radio interview, but has told the Irish Independent that he is serious about writing the book that he hopes will be out before Christmas.

The book will detail his more than 30 years in politics, including his involvement in the Moriarty Tribunal, which branded Mr Lowry as "profoundly corrupt" in its 2011 report.
or as one twitter wag put it

"Working title: Ben There, Dunne That and Sold The Mobile Licence"

It'll probably be an ebook, serialised in the indo, or read aloud on newstalk.

It's beyond time the 'artist's exemption' was looked at and amended...

To think that f***ers like Lowry and the rest can write books and pay no tax on the proceeds is nauseating...

It's bad alright, but seriously, how many people would buy Lowry's book?
