    Any word from Bertie cheerleaders like Harris, Waters, Terry Prone et al. They'll all desert the rat now that he has no favours to bestow.

    Such a tosser, he had as much money and prestige as anyone would need to be content. Then he's supposed to be so mean that the actual spending of money is unlikely to bring him any great joy.

    ... and flip some burgers.

    Thus all which you call Sin, Destruction—in brief, Evil—that is my true element.

    See above.
    There are a number tax evasion implications, there's the tacit allegation that he received bribes...I believe that the DPP and Revenue will pursue findings within the Report.

    There are a great number of public representatives who gave sworn testimony that has been found to be untrue. That's perjury.

    I wouldn't hold my breath on this one either.
    I disagree; there is substantial evidence of perjury, it is itemized throughout the Report. As I recall, perjury is a crime. Ergo, the DPP must prosecute.

    That means Ahern, Flynn, Richardson, Dunlop, Reynolds, O'Callaghan and all the sordid rest of them lied under oath.

    The spin-doctors have all evaporated. The Drumcondra Mafia has made a good showing.

    Wonderful....!

    Well, what can we do?

    The Mahon report is basically about a spat between the political and social elite in this country, with the legal elite acting as a sort of referee. No actions will flow from it. Papers will be shuffled in a Garda office somewhere and a statement will be issued to this effect.

    Meanwhile if any of the rest of us try to make our feelings known - say like driving a truck up to the gates of the Leinster Corrupt Payments House - Gardai would be all over us like cobwebs on Bertie's wallet.

    Well said.
