yes, that is true. Which is different from saying that the tribunal was delayed until after the election. He can't monkey around with the tribunal proceedings, though he can do what he likes to the election schedule.

The effect of the election being called when it was called was to delay the Bertie bit of the tribunal until the fall, that's what I'm saying.

The Green Party votes save Bertie's bacon. What a load of shite. Gormley seems to think it's all O.K., because litter fines are up and the melting ice caps will drown us all before the Mahon tribunal is finished anyway.

What does this man have to do to get the sack? In other countries he might well be looking at jail time by now. How do you tackle corruption and lying under oath if there are no political or legal consequences for doing so?

So are the Revenue just waiting their turn before looking for explanations for these wads of cash, as they would with any of us, or is he above them too?

He'll probably just settle with revenue and that will be that. Nobody seems to care, and there doesn't seem to be any independent organisation entrusted with firing corrupt politicians.

Ireland has some serious problems.

I think he has a point, legally. Parliamentary privilege, innit?

So who is waiting in the wings to take over should Bertie resign? Are you going to end up with a grumpy control freak who has been long passed over like what we have?

Actually, while I don't care a smidgin for his politics, Brian Cowen, the likely successor, is easily one of thesmartest and most capable guys in the Dáil. And probably a tad more honest.

If you defend a crook then you are a crook as well. If Cowen had any cojones/sense of public service/respect for democracy then he'd call Bertie Ahern on his bullshit. I mean, seriously, a sitting Prime Minister is asked by a Tribunal investigating political corruption (a tribunal which he set up) to provide evidence, and the PM starts whinging in the media about being unfairly questioned and goes to the high court. Democracy is dead and buried in Ireland. He's just as bad as Bush or Berlusconi.

As for Cowen being one of the smartest men in the Dail, well, that's not too difficult really.

Bertie's not doing this to save his own bacon, he's doing it to protect the constitution.

This is the same man who complained about not having a palace and a yacht. He really is seriously deluded.

Bascially he is admitting, yes, he told porkies about his finances to Dail Eireann and the electorate in the runup to the election, but you can't use it against him in court! Haha! Suckers!

He's such a cunt, it's unbelievable.

Like I say, he's undoubtedly a total cunt, but I'm not sure he's wrong about this.

If you make parliamentary statements legally actionable/admissible, bad things can happen. For a start, we might well not have these tribunals.

As a defendant, legally he's on solid ground. Probably.

As a Prime Minister he's taking the piss.
