An 'emotional' Statesman
Ahh sure, gawd luv him. Wasn't he a daycent ould skin, all the same . . . . yis are all just feckin' begrudgers, trying to bring down a dedicated follower of businessmen . . .
In light of the long-overdue recent events . . .
The Taoiseach Bertie Ahern announced this morning that he would be stepping down as leader of the Irish nation and Fianna Fail on May 6th.
Mr. Ahern stated his intention following the ongoing revelations from the Mahon Tribunal’s inquiry into corruption.

In an emotional statement from government buildings the Irish Leader announced his intention to step down, following allegations in mainstream Irish media of perjury. “Never, in all the time I’ve served in public life, have I put my personal interests ahead of the public good.”
I figured I'd repost a comment I left elsewhere (shame to waste it:) . . .
Oh he’s good at the ‘ould ‘emotional’ statements, alright. Hasn’t he had plenty of practice with the help of RTE over the past year. Remember his crocodile tears when he did his RTE news interview with Brian Dobson? The one where he pretended to be nearly on the verge of a mental breakdown due to the media ‘intrusion’ into his separation from his wife?
Takes some neck to do that considering he was the one brought up his marital difficulties in a sad attempt to put the media off the scent.
After that, he was waving his dead mother around the place, like some voodoo charm, in a similar attempt to ward of the evhullll spirits of 'meejah intrusion’ into other dodgy bank lodgements.
‘Me dead mudder gave it to me! How could yis bring me dead mudder into it! Oh, the shame, she’d be turning in her grave!’
. . . and other such nonsense. Indeed the idiot brudder, Noel, went on RTE's Jo Duffy/Pat Kenny show (can't remember off-hand which it was but I assure you it was one of those two) to say exactly that. I'm paraphrasing a little but not much, trust me.
He told the tribunal his mother Julia, who died in 1998, gave him IR£7,000, which he lodged to his savings account in March 1993.
Will the Village Idiot be next try to bolster the lies of Irish Prime Minister Bertie Ahern? So far, Ahern has dragged his dead mother, his former wife, his former girlfriend and now his former employee into his quagmire of lies which he is trying to spin to the Mahon Tribunal.
Having said all that, I shudder at the thought of the likes of Enda Kenny, the ball-less-wonder from ‘de Whesth’, winning an election and being in charge of the country. At least Bertie had the confidence of ‘de peepil’, sadly something Enda could never aspire to
The Taoiseach, Bertie Ahern, has denied that he has questions to answer in relation to a report in today's Irish Times that he received money from businessmen......He told journalists that it was 'none of their business' if he got something from somebody as a present.He said today's allegation that he had received payments of between €50,000 and €100,000 was 'off the wall' and 'an unfair, unjust leak'......Mr Ahern added that he was not answering what he got for his Holy Communion money, his confirmation money, or his birthday.
Luckily for An Taioseach, a lot of the people he claimed to have received money from are now dead. Dead men tell no Tribunals . . . .
Well Celia, do you feel safe now? :)
I knew those photo's would come in handy . . . . someday :)
