Now Paddy wants her gone.



Paddy seems like the kind of chap who'd stab you between the shoulder blades, and then scurry off and fetch you the first aid kit.

Road to Damascus and no mistake.
Sure,isn't he a blue shirt ?

I think it's likely that Bailey and Farrell were targeted by their own party with this audit.

Either had a 10% chance of being audited, both being picked is pretty slim. The only doubt is whether Lowry and Ferris got a heads up to have their house in order from some FG backchannel to make the two FG ghouls of them look eve worse.

Internal politics can be more vicious than anything external.

About 10 years ago Tom Hayes was the sitting South Tipp TD. Derry Foley was a sitting councillor in Clonmel area, but with a high profile from GAA he was being touted as a general election candidate. Small issue with a local election before general and low and behold there was two new FG candidates living within few miles of Foley on FG ticket. Bye Bye Derry. Probably run of the mill stuff if you watch this stuff a lot

Less of the personal remarks John boy! I hope you're not trying to get this thread shut down like last time.

SOR (Sean,Sean) just asked Coveney about the DLR/Bailey situation.

Coveney was all '...she has suffered enough for her mistake....hard working... blah, blah'.

Sean,Sean said '...it is widely believed that you intervened to stop her losing the whip...' and no denial from Coveney to that statement.

Coveney must be really annoyed to be defending her yet again in October!

There's nothing personal in my observations, you made several statements backing your one to the hilt, , despite a wet day ago insisting the report leo buried exonerated her from any wrongdoings at all.

Now you're all over the thoughts of her being axed.

It was like your earlier condemnations of white van men, breakfast rolls etc on the dash, and whatnot, you questioned their intellectual capabilities and so on, then in the next breath drop the ground breaking news that you run a business as a builder suppliers.

They're your posts mo chara, no one else's and the discrepancies in them couldn't be made up.

Pointing out discrepancies in your characters posts Paddy, that's all, though I'm sure you're a real nice fella in real life.

Too little too late.

I won’t be voting FG as their management of their own members is sh1te.

I’m also not impressed that the government is going full hard on re brexit. The amount of government dept ads currently should have been aired this time last year when brexit was meant to happen Feb 2019. Why didn’t we hear as much then as we have now?

The big story is Brexit. ‘Beaker’ Sheehan writing another hungover rant in the Indo about Bailey or social media might appeal to the ‘seen and done’ merchants who crave tabloid fodder, but it has little impact on the electorate.

That’s why the last opinion poll should FG support unchanged, and satisfaction with Leo and the Government up sharply. That might be tough bread for some lads to chew. Always looking for an outrage or scandal where none exists.

He almost had me feeling sorry for her . Shes suffered enough !. How exactly ?.
She's still on the ticket !. Yada yada yada. When a politician supports you it's time to watch your back.
Shes toast,and she has nobody to blame except herself and the person who advised her.

The party make a move to oust her (despite their report exonerating her) and the media report on it shocker.

Oh, and it aint just the Indo, it's all over various media sources this morning.

If you see her, tell K.T Tunstall I said hi btw.

Simon talking sh*te:

Quote:
Tanáiste Simon Coveney has defended Fine Gael TD Maria Bailey saying she has "paid the price for making a mistake" and she continues to pay that price.

He said a detailed internal investigation was carried out and the results of that led to the Taoiseach taking disciplinary action.

"I think that when disciplinary action is being taken and consequences faced up to, there is some point surely for a person to move on," said Mr Coveney.https://www.rte.ie/news/politics/201...ley-fine-gael/
Apart from people rightly calling her out what price has been paid, what consequences? The whole issue is exacerbated by the in-action from Leo and the best people. The issue is character. Brought to the fore once more by the expenses claims.

Going by Simon's logic if she runs and wins that's her vindicated. Wrong Sio. Even if she disappears from political life the stain on the FG party will remain.

The dreaded vote of confidence

Varadkar says he has confidence in Maria Bailey as a candidate in the next general election

A motion of no confidence has been tabled against the Dun Laoghaire TD.

"TAOISEACH LEO VARADKAR has said he has confidence in TD Maria Bailey as a general election candidate.

Speaking in Brussels today, he said Bailey is someone who made “some very significant errors of judgement, but she has been reprimanded for that, she has been demoted. I demoted her and removed her as the chair of the [Oireachtas] Housing Committee”.

Funny Leo a lot of people wouldn't see what you did as a proper reprimand

Listened to Leo, he offered full backing to Bailey. However he said FG is a democratic party. She's toast. Channelling his inner Pontus Pilate.
