'Ireland is the most corrupt country in the Western world'

Quote:
- There are and will always be crooked cops but to have a crooked police force, that’s something else
- that can boast a police force that used an actual laundry to launder money that should have gone to the State.
- where law officers could falsify up to one million breath tests and still keep their chief in her job.
- that had a Minister of Finance with no bank account, who we saw fit to lead us for eleven years (Bertie)
Stolen from Mirror
Given it's been going on for the past century, planning, housing, nepotism, employment, emigration, etc etc
When do we realise that we want this and we endorse this in our country?

Ahern was finance minister 25 years ago and many of the senior ministers from that era are dead.

Why keep using it as a point?

Clearly the U.K. has its own problems but ireland is bad enough.

I don’t actually think the corruption is a century old, it comes from the post war haughey generation.

I mean, I'm no fan of what the British Police did over there, but the exact same thing happened here.

America is easily the most corrupt with their lobbying and Super PACs.

While this gets thrown around a lot it's pretty baseless. Every country has significant problems but on the whole, Ireland is not considered a corrupt country at all, within Europe, let alone the 'western world'.
