Yes but did you understand the 'cooler' reference?

I think you missed it. For shame. You are unworthy of your username.

Conviction should also carry immediate dismissal from Dail too, Dail rules should include any conviction rules you out to hold any office of this country (if it doesnt already)

Lowry has been getting away with this carry on for far too long and I feel the idiots voting for him are just as bad not to realise it

Anyone voting for Lowry would do the exact same thing that he does.

Lowry is a magnificent bastard. It'll be a fine and a stern word for him.

Great to see Irish courts convicting a white collar crime, nobody should be untouchable.

The scale of financial loss is much greater than many of those in prison.
