Brian Crowley - MEP taking the proverbial

This knob represents Ireland in the European Parliament but hasn't cast a single vote there since 2014. As an MEP he has a salary of circa 100k per year and can claim expenses of up to 50k per year.

What the actual fuck like?

Perhaps the good people of Boards would like to email Brian to ask him what the story is?

Don't forget to CC Michael Martin, who doesn't seem too bothered by it.

micheal.martin@oireachtas.ie

Mods: I realise this could be in the politics forum but I think this piss taker deserves a wider audience

Because people keep putting him back in there..

It has to be based on the wheelchair ticket because it can’t be based on his previous performance.

I don’t understand it either but that’s democracy.

I remember the last round of EU Elections when Fianna Fail were toxic by association.
What did the bould Crowley do?

Printed all his election posters on a Blue and Gold background alá Fine Gael type posters and stuck a tiny little FF logo in the corner.
His election pamphlets and posters really passed him of as a FG candidate.

It ain't Brian or Mickey Martin who'll be answering any emails - it'll be a P.A with zero sway, who'll be required to copy and paste some vague stock response.

The guys a disgrace as he refuses to answer any questions on his absence. He should never have ran for the seat and definitely should have stepped aside when it became obvious he wouldnt be able to fulfill his duties.



The fact that hes pulling down 150k a year for literally doing nothing is an absolute disgrace and something I hope is well publicised come the MEP elections next year

Read the other day that out of 751 MEPs he has the worst voting record bar none in the whole EU. I know he had some health problems shortly after his election but if that means he cant travel to Brussels to do his job then he needs to resign rather than bleed the taxpayer dry for doing no work.

He got kicked out of FF as when he was the only seat they won he wasn't receiving the same level of support he was accustomed to, so he left the EU voting block FF were a member of and joined one full of holocaust deniers and nazis.

He hasn't but he does a very good job of appearing that way when he thinks it may benefit him.

He didn't elect himself - people get the politicians they vote for!

He is quite ill at the moment.

He should have stood down when his health impacted on his ability to attend his job
