Is it at all possible that it was a local query and he might have referred to them to a more appropriate source, perhaps a council representative for that particular area?He was also on local radio here in Cork a while ago and refused to answer a listener's question because the person was from Castletownbere which is not in his constituency.
It is exactly this sort of thing that should be highlighted. We all know that Politicians behaviour changes at Election time. Look at O'Keefe himself, lately he is shouting from the roof tops to get votes by championing populist issues. We seem to forget that he was a tax evader, he got several govt grants for his pig farm, he has kept quiet on all of the big issues in Govt, up to now, etc etc etc all at the expense of the tax payer. Are these the actions we need to see in our public reps. We should be calling these people to account. Does it matter whether it happened 5 weeks ago or 5 years ago. Highlight these issues and expose them for what they areIt happened in your own county and was reported in the media there 17 months ago - and you only hear about it now.
No wonder this country is so thoroughly screwed up!:lol::lol::lol:
Is there no Dail ombudsman ? like the Parlimentary ombudsman in the UK ? This is obviously a breach of standards and his undertaking as a public representitive to represent constituents equally.
