In a departure from the norm, Willie has taken it upon himself today to criticise FF- he believes the way the government has handled things in the last 10 days has been awful (no argument there) but the way he gets his message across will only serve to stoke up the anger many people


Maybe it is the freedom I gained by being involuntarily released from the bindings of office, but I can see that the public believe the Taoiseach and the Government are indifferent to the fears and the problems they face.
Essentially, he's still banging on about his being booted out and how that has affected him. There's also the clear implication that we'd be better off with Willie back at the cabinet table batting for us.

It's hard to admit it, but Fianna Fail's strategy has gone wrong - Analysis, Opinion - Independent.ie

Putting out ministers to insist that the Emperor is beautifully robed when onlookers can plainly see he is stark naked cannot be justified as a media strategy, even by the most inept of communications managers.
A better strategy would have been to issue sworn affidavits to the international media:mad:

After his ill-judged and disastrous performance on RTE's News at One, the day before he 'resigned', I'd say that Willie knows all about inept Communication Managers!

WTF does the rag give him an opportunity to express his views?

He was brutal in Government.

Name one thing Wee Willie Winkie will be remembered for? Affidavits :)

Just another venal self-serving slíbhín trying to secure his seat at the next election.

Willy Wonka again- but WOD is also a deluded tribal underling who will be remebered for his gutter tactics at all times including the affidavits which you mention - he could not define integrity despite all of of his qualifications. Will he do an honest day's work ever with his ministerial pension and Sindo's pay cheques? ! Simple answer is no. The army should turn the gun on him and make him march!

He's not saying he believes it, just that the public (silly plebs) believe it. Therefore it's a perception issue, there is nothing substantially wrong, just an optics issue. That's allright then, for a moment I thought the country actually had a problem.
