Heather Humphreys was promoted from obscurity by Enda Kenny

She then did exactly as he said in appointing John McNulty

Arts Minister Humphreys appoints colleague who did not apply for position to state board | BreakingNews.ie
John McNulty steps down from IMMA board - RTÉ News

I see 3 things wrong with the appointment

  1. The chap is not qualified to be on the board of IMMA at all at all
  2. It was done with the plain intention of him going for election and that is not allowed under IMMA rules
  3. The intention of it was an even bigger wrong, getting him into the Seanad

I believe Heather Humphreys has shown cronyism and worse incompetence and cannot remain as Minister

Heather Humphries should never have been a Minister,
but, to answer your question -
she will remain a Minister.

Kenny will beg her to stay, he is in enough trouble and will just try to rough it out, he has no other choice. It's some fiasco, where FF as bad as this ??

She should be allowed to give her side of the story.

I kind of feel sorry for her. She's been thrown to the wolves by people far more experienced than her. It could be the making or breaking of her - that's her choice now.

What do you have to do to get into this privileged caste, the ones who get appointed to state boards, get plum Senate nominations, all from nowhere? I never got the Croneyism 101 handbook, and can't find it on Amazon...
I believe there is an excellent account of the process in another book. :)

"The party hacks guide to good governance"? although I think its more of a pamphlet.

She couldn't even come up some bullsh*t excuse as to why she signed off on his appointment.

Useless.

She certainly was quite upset over FF cronyism before her election. In fact I posted her speech on the thread below. It was taken down in the last 24 hours ;)

she was appointed a minister so as to deny the shinners a dail seat, she has to stay, a bigger story would break if she did/had to resign, this leads to another question, can she now keep the shinners at bay, is her own vote going to be affected, as she repesents people of a different standing, who i was aslo told do not look kindly on this type of conniving.

How could she appoint McN to IMMA if he was unable to contest the Seanad seat whilst being on that Board?

That's the puzzle for me.

Was she set up, did she KNOW this would be the case? WTF.

Something smells here.

Well done to all the fools who voted to retain the Seanad, accidental or otherwise.
