Bertie Ahern’s Pensions — A Helpful Suggestion

Now I, for one, am glad to know that De Bert is not corrupt.

Who amongst us has not had bags (literally, shopping bags) of large-denomination notes the origin of which we have  been unable to explain?

Who amongst us has not had friends who spontaneously organise whiprounds and buy us houses?

Who amongst us has not won large sums of money on the horses, and despite it being a small prince’s ransom been unable to remember the meeting, the horse, the jockey?

And all of course not corrupt, no, not at all.

There is a most unhealthy rage against this great man. Who is not corrupt. Let’s leave aside his many contributions to fashion, to elocution, to accounting, and remember that this man was elected not once, not twice, but thrice.  And he is not corrupt, no not at all.  The more feebleminded might juxtapose being in a position of the most concentrated power in the land and shopping bags of unexplained high denomination foreign currency and draw inferences from it.   I shall refrain.

Here is a small suggestion, and remember, De Bert is not corrupt.  I am sure is like all readers, he is tax compliant. A tiny small change could be made to the various public sector pension acts, making it a requirement to obtain a public sector pension to produce a tax clearance cert.  I mean, taxi drivers, publicans, they all need to produce one. People bidding for a government contract need to produce one.  I am certain sure that, not being corrupt, De Bert would have little difficulty in producing one.  For €2,800 a week, a mere pittance, its perhaps beneath his notice, given that he obtains over €70k for speaking, but as they say ” every little helps’.

  1. Bock.You are using the wrong language, for a nort inner city, penshunner.Dis , dat, dese, and doze.A lot done, a lot more to dooooo.Yeh know whahImeanloike.
    Seriously, his pathetic attempts, to justify hi eh…honesty, are insulting to the Irish People.He jumped ship, with FF, before he got de boot, and the fucker, will get away, with the whole thing.I maintain, he should be strung up, by his fat balls.

  2. Poor Celia Larkin is desolate she says.. Fucking desolate that the man she shared her life with could even be considered corrupt. Desolate Was she desolate when she was enjoying the lifestyle of the ah ‘first lady’.. get me the puck bag.
    Saw her on the telly once going on saying that if Bertie was corrupt in any way she’d have know about it.. and the neck of her, getting her wads of filthy cash for her house.
    She’s saying now, Bertie could be a bollix but corrupt, no way.
    Something desperate about her clinging to save her own neck in defending him..
    She irks me. Full of shite so she is.

    Good post there Brian.. yeah he’s definitely not corrupt. The whip arounds and the horses.. very plausible altogether. His accounting was a just a little “unorthodox” is all.

  3. must be a bitch trying to live on 5 grand a week, [and the income from his speeches, telling the world how great he is]
    still if the bottom falls out of it, he still has his luck betting on gee gees,,,

  4. “Who amongst us didn’t have bags of large denomination notes”……Well I for one did have, but there was this one time I found myself at a dinner in Manchester,………

  5. Do the people that matter have the balls to follow up on that suggestion there Brian?

  6. Strangely,the transient global amnesia from which Bertie suffers also afflicted Willie Dee when the latter couldnt remember the name of the guard who told him about Maurice Quinlivan. Is this condition peculiar to FF?

  7. Dont forget, that Honest Bertie, and all of the Taoisigh, also have a permanent seat, on The Council of State, advising El Presidente, on matters of national import.I am sure, that their B and B, costs, and busfares, are paid for, plus some sort of attendance allowance.I hope Bertie turns up..he might say..nobody told me anytin abourrr it.
