    £15,000 fine and disqualified as a director for three years. No custodial sentence or community service.

    What a joke.

    Agree, very lenient sentencing. Ray Burke got a custodial sentence in 2003 for similar offences. We seem to be going backwards.

    It is 29C here in Lowry's constituency, and I am steaming. Not the weather you understand.

    Am just practising the phrase' a convicted criminal' for the next time Team Lowry (no, really) comes looking for a vote. Not defamatory now, is it?
    When they say all politics is local, can I point out how narrowly local? While in the same county, his votes do not come from around here, they come overwhelmingly from the immediate area of his home. That's some pretty intensive clientism, don't ya think?

    Yes Harney did Haughey a big favour by opening her big mouth at the wrong time but majority would say it was totally premeditated by her, she booked herself into Easy Street from that point on.

    She was already in easy street, she was a senior government minister in spite of her party only getting about 10% (at most) of the vote. I blame the judge more than Harney, he could just have issued directions to the jury that they must ignore anything they have heard apart from the evidence in court, there was no need to stop the case like that.

    Harney is no stranger to the courts having pocketed over a half a million from various media organisations for libel over the years. I wish someone would libel me, sounds like the easiest way to make a few bob in this Banana Republic.
