Its becoming more and more obvious that moneybags Willie O'Dea is on the way to being pensioned off by Fianna Fail.

A couple of weeks ago we had him waffling on about writing his memoirs. A literary work that local wags suggest may be more in the style of Alan Partridge than Alan Clark.

Now we learn in today's Sindo that he has "become a director of a British company called Union Jack Oil".

http://www.independent.ie/national-news/odea-to-flag-union-jack-oil-directorship-with-dail-3367827.html

According to the article O'Dea regards investing in shares as "a hobby" and "Mr O'Dea, who also writes for the Sunday Independent, has investments in a range of exploration companies and, like other investors, he is a "follower" of entrepreneur John Teeling, a long-time promoter of oil, gas and mining firms in Ireland and abroad, as well as the founder of the Cooley Distillery, which was recently sold to the American drinks giant Jim Beam."

Many would think that he is preparing for his departure from politics.

Between his investments and tax payer funded pensions he can look forward to a very comfortable retirement unlike many of his constituents.

I hope for his business partners sake that he is better at looking after their investments than he has been for looking after Limerick City.

The fact of the matter is that after 30 years as a TD, O'Dea has achieved little or nothing for limerick and will be leaving no worthwhile legacy behind. He will soon be forgotten.

Does one have to sign an affidavit to become a company director?

Some obsession you have there.

This may sound silly but are you by any chance called Michael Noonan?

But not by you williewatch.

Won't you be sitting at his graveside, pining for the days when he gave you something to talk about?

Not really, Yer man out in the County, Niall Collins and that fella over in Clare Timmy Dooley are aspiring O'Dea's.

They are already generating much mirth.

So my next incarnation will be either as Collinswatch or Dooleywatch.

But there is a small bit of time to run with Williewatch yet.

I hope this puts your mind at rest :D

Somebody should inform Union Jack Oil, that while Willie has climbed many greasy polls, and has a very slick way of presenting himself, he probably knows very little about Hydrocarbon Exploration.

It is evnts like this that inform us that politicians and the political state, both have far too much influence over business.

Last question, NO why should you?

Willie's memoirs would be a hoot. You could imagine every anecdote ending with "needless to say.. I had the last laugh".

Ah sure I suppose that'll have to do.

Interesting though, that as Britain makes republican noises in Europe, a former Irish Minister and still sitting parliament member in the rogue republic goes all imperial and wraps the union jack around himself.

Honour among thieves, and a touch of birds of a feather flocking together perhaps. It's also helpful when prospecting abroad, to have as a director of one's company, a minister for guns from a rogue republic I suppose.

You might put up that famous picture of His Malevolence Sir Willy of Rubber Bandit House brandishing his trusty sidearm.

Thanks.

Welcome back to Limerick, williewatch. After posting your last two moustache-related threads on non-local forums, I was beginning to think you were considering O'Dea to be a figure of national importance.

Today's Mail says he sent a calendar to Mo Qunilivan; with a request for some free soup in the brothel.
