    Just seen him getting out of it on the news an 11 D model, this must have cost over 100,000! Why wasn't this mentioned in the media, when Brian Cowen got his new S class the media never stopped at him!
    so much car pooling and cheaper cars the ginger Sh1te

    Did he buy it? Is he not allowed spend his money as he wants?



    It was probably a loaner from somewhere though.

    He is the taoiseach. IMO he should have a car of this standard. Knock the various taxes off the retail price and it will cost the state a reasonable figure over the few years he would have it.
    Having said that, I thought he was getting the use of cowans S Class once they took it off him. IMO the 07 E Class he was using was alittle bit ordinary for the leader of the country. Surely he should be on a par with captains of industry?

    Generally leaders of the country are driven in a car produced in their country. So he should be in this one,from the 50's mind;)

    Its a 1 litre diesel as far as I know.

    We seen him getting out of the car pictured at the All Ireland Final on Sunday, it has garda flashers on it's rear front and sides. Thought it was a bit of a laugh considering the way things are but doesn't the Prime Minister in Britain have the very same car? It looked armoured too as the windows were inches thick and very chunky doors.

    Jaguar is a british brand, Enda should be in the shamrock car

    The car is in the USA.

    If you want him driving in a well known Irish car, he'd have to drive a DeLorean.

    hhmmmm, interesting concept - that flux capacitor might come in handy if he could go back a few years!

    Who cares he's not FF, I think he's entitled to a Jag, he didn't get the country into the mess were in. However the engine should be removed and Bertie Ahern and Biffo yoked and whipped to pull the thing.

    Thats the short term memory of the Irish voter for you. Give it another few months and they'll be demanding FF back in power

    Don't think anyone's gonna be happy until the Taoiseach is driving around in a '01 Punto with the exhaust hanging off.

    XJ looks great, a fine choice IMO.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,463 ✭✭✭Solnskaya


    a diesel carina would be good enough to keep his 4rse from dragging on the tarmac, the feckin ginger two-faced windbag. He could share it with Eamon Getmore. The car they drive should reflect the finances and standing of the state, and as they are buried in debt, a carina running on the green would be appropriate. The rest of the pampered, do nothing wasters should car-pool a micra with a whip-around for a tenner of fuel when it's really needed. Noonan could have his very own Hiace though, a good old battered one, it would allow people to identify him as the
    he is.

    The Jag is a savage car. Coming to Bangeromics thread near you in 20 years time..

    The Jag might not be too far off the mark, the richest Irishman (well holder of an Irish passport) is a major shareholder in Tata, current owners of Jaguar.

    If people want to speak about politics instead of the car then they are in the wrong forum.
