    he should have pulled out the whole - "i ran out of diesel the other day and a kind farmer gave me some from his tractor" - works everytime

    Looks like Corminator, the unexpected voice of reason of the trash TV show, has fallen on hard times financially. He was caught by revenue using a dyed fuel in his car.

    I thought the participants of Tallafornia were paid a small fortune - especially considering what Nikita did to her reputation.

    Thought they hated all things rural on that show? :confused:

    The voice of reason? You're thinking of a different guy.

    Chauffe, Marcel, chauffe!


    Gotta feel sorry for small operators driven to cut corners to make ends meet. One of the easiest options to save money for sure is to use illegal fuel for your taxi.

    Why the hell do we allow green diesel at all? Why are we subsidising farmers even more than the EU does already? Scrap green diesel - a polluting farmer should pay as much as a polluting taxi driver

    And for that matter, a polluting taxi driver should pay as much as a polluting commuter. Scrap cheap taxi motor tax. Scrap all motor tax and make all polluters pay it as and when we buy our pollutants (fuel)

    It's TV3, so I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't paid at all and lured in with promises of free boarding, food and 'exposure'. These are the kind of saps who'd fall for that line too.

    I did hear a quote that they were being paid €4,000 per nightclub appearance, but I imagine that those bookings have since dried up. And part of the reason that these reality TV show 'stars' command such high fees is that appearing on these things generally make them unemployable in the 'real world'.

    Now they're all 'agented up', so I'd say they'd be paid a decent amount for the new series. But still, that's a decent amount for a TV3 though (I'd guess around €10k for a few weeks filming), and it's easier to spend that on a ratings winner.

    Woah, I used way too many 'inverted commas' in that post...

    Who cares? He's getting what he deserves.

    How do you even possibly get caught for this?

    Hopefully Cormac will learn his lesson and also that grey goose vodka is too expensive.

    Who?

    Everything I don't like is either woke or fascist - possibly both - pick one.

    there have been a few people recently I have heard, running their diesel cars on home heating oil, or a 50/50 blend of diesel and heating oil

    Didn't know he drove a taxi. Hope I get his taxi some day. That'd be claaaaas.


  • Site Banned Posts: 612 ✭✭✭Lionel Messy


    Has he stopped taking the other juice then?


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,192 ✭✭✭✭B.A._Baracus


    How did he get caught tho?
    It doesnt say in the article. I'm guessing someone ratted him up. Its not like the garda have random checkpoints testing your fuel - "hold on boy'o while i dip me wick in ya" :pac:

    So someone must of ratted on him. "he's what?! making a fortune off that tv3 yolk, driving a taxi op top then buying tractor diesel? ring the guards on him!" .... you know yourself.


  • Registered Users Posts: 24,506 ✭✭✭✭Cookie_Monster


    so why did he not simply blame whatever petrol station and say he had no idea it was marked fuel?

    Customs do it frequently.

    I'm more surprised that he was capable of making an application to get a driving licence and then had the necessary motor skills to actually drive. Wonders never cease.

    You do realise there is random check points that dip the tank, Customs and Garda are at them. In fact i see them all the time at certain locations.

    Your knowledge on this disturbs me....

    The word "legend" is used a bit too loosely to describe people these days, but it's safe to say, Cormac is a legend. This diesel thing changes nothing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,015 ✭✭✭Wossack


    I could be wrong, but reading between the lines it kinda sounds like the car was written-off (unknown reason), impounded, and in the impound, it was found that the tank contained dodge fuel

    A spin-off show?

    It's not a defense afaik. Being in possession is the crime. Same with drugs.

    "Corminator"... sweet jesus.

    bollix, how can you possibly know if it's legit fuel or not if coming from a garage?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,803 ✭✭✭El Siglo


    Surprised his taxi doesn't just run on eggs and creatine.
