So in law you should be rewarded financially for failing to engage with statutory process and for not correcting the record with regard to established process? :confused::confused::confused:

Only in Ireland....
was Guerin not involved in a committee that was against Shatter's proposal to open up the legal closed shop ?

he could have reduced the judge's pay through legislation, so pissed away a lot more money on the referendum than recouped through the paycut. failed miserably with garda reform, the whistleblowers, reform of childcare (a biggie considering he used dail privelege to get the tracy fay report into the record), allegations of cronyism, failed to have independent judicial appointments, failed to have judicial oversight & discipline, started plenty of rows in graveyards, failed to reform the asylum process the list is endless.

considering his undoubted intelligence and abilities, he will go down in the annals as a dismal failure as MOJ
so he could reduced it without changing constitution. Read up on the matter,and case law. And how many judges took voluntary pay cut ?

Funnily I'm well aware of the case law and its still my belief that the matter could have been legislated for, thus not requiring a referendum. The voluntary pay cut is nothing to do with this

One of the more contemptible stunts pulled by the Oily One to trot out an utterly groundless allegation of bias against Guerin in the certain knowledge that it would be given widespread privilege protected media coverage only to quietly abandon it when he was required to substantiate it.

Poor Alan indeed...."deprived of fair procedures" did Wallace receive "fair procedure" from Shatter on the telly?

tisk tisk
Was Shatter denied fair procedure when he used/abused, his position on a Garda to prevent the Garda from doing her job in breathalysing.

One day we'll hear the truth of it, meanwhile the Garda in question has not been moved to Donegal.

Shatter loses. Presumably costs will follow the event

Surely, with such a defeat Alan Shatter will want to explain why he still feels superior to all of his ?

Shatter loses on all grounds. Judge says he made a "totally unwarranted allegation of bias" against Guerin. #shatter

I suppose he'll be off to some higher court now.
