Helen McEntee & Those Donations - threadbanned users in OP

    Helen McEntee, to a certain extent has been the Darling of Irish media for many year's, all for very good reason. Shes Likable, Efficient, and has an ability to show empathy and is good communicator. (Not Traits to be often found in many, many FG TD'S)

    I equally think she's a bit of an enigma, can't explain it but just not sure.

    The Indo has been chasing a curious story about Helen, Political Donations and a particular Donor, fond of Cheese & Onion Crisps. 3 stories this week on the same theme. It occurred to me, if this were any other politician, the story would have recieved a lot more attention and yet barely a whisper beyond the Indo.


    I personally prefer King Crisps myself (Full disclosure 😉)

    She is the next generation of politician in Ireland and I think she is excellent. We need more young voices like her in political leadership in this county.

    You've clearly missed the joke , I am aware who produce both, all I've said is I prefer King Crisps, anything to add on the actual question raised on the thread 🤔

    I think you are being unfair to Incels, their opinions are far more varied.

    But I imagine the thread will soon light up to put this 'uppity bitch' in her place, with the bulk of the rhetoric been focused on bloody foreigners eating our Tayto and taking our houses.

    I'll check back later to see if I am correct.

    Not if she's got questions to answer. Noonan and Lowry were young once.

    Not seeing any new questions to answer based on that article tbh.

    Coyle gave her 3 cheques from 3 different companies. I'm sure there's a legal tax dodge in that, which is why he did it that way.

    That most likely led to confusion on McEntee's side where what she sees is 3 different donations. When they went to do the SIPO return, they realised that they were in effect a single donation over the limit and returned the money.

    The article is full of loaded statements like "refuses to disclose other donations", but she has no legal or moral obligation to reveal the names of everyone who donated every euro, and you'd be a fvcking moron to do so.

    I heard another very prominent cabinet minister has been in receipt of donations from the Mega Meanies Corporation. A distinct whiff of pickled onion flavour off their policies.

    Did Harris ever make a complaint about the TD who named him as the Cabinet leaker in the Dail or is Harris still thinking about it?

  • Registered Users Posts: 26,526 ✭✭✭✭ Dempo1

    I was just about to add to your excellent observations, No, Harris is still , yes, still considering his position, with indecision on that scale , it's hard to fathom how he gets through a normal day 😁

    Harris is utterly opaque a poo stirrer and has essentially being undermining his own party colleagues and indeed government for a year now. Its simply astonishing he's getting any support in the leadership stakes, perhaps he leaked convenient results to the articles Author 🤔

    Is the allegation, that she received the payments for finding a "solution" for Tayto Park to operate as normal through CV19?
