Frank Feighan TD

BANK of Ireland has taken legal action against TD Frank “Overdue” Feighan making him the latest Fianna Gael figure to fall victim to poor judgement. The loan in Question is about €300,000.

Feighan who has extensive property interests in Ireland and overseas said the loan related to the family business in his native Boyle.

He said he was “very surprised” that the bank moved against him but expects a positive outcome. Now anyone with a debt appears to be flabbergasted when a bank moves against him or her. What a cheek, how dare those clerks cast doubt on my credibility? This is haughtiness at its best. A man from a corner shop background should know better.

Should we allow a politician who is indebted to the banks to vote on issues affecting the banks? Do we need a man already compromised and demonstrating a lack of financial judgement in the Dáil?

You would need blinkers not to see the conflict of interest. Is the kind of person we want to represent us the citizenry? Maybe TDs who cannot pay their debts as a matter of form should resign.

Ironic that this TD cannot even look after his own affairs what chance has he of looking after the affairs of his public.

Let us have a quick peek at some highlights of Frank Feighan career.

Feighan was re-elected at the 2011 general election. In government, he voted with Fine Gael on the Roscommon Hospital issue despite having assured his constituents of his commitment to saving the hospital. He told the Dáil he was “sincerely sorry” for breaking a pre-election promise in relation to the issue. This man excels in his ability to break promises and shows management skills in not paying off his debts. However he shows little aptitude in representing the public at large.

Following the publication of the 2012 Constituency Commission report, the Irish Times believed he was one of 13 TDs most likely to lose their seats in the next election. With luck, it will be a case of good riddance and good-bye to Overdue Frank.

In my humble opinion, Fianna Gael is turning out to be just like the bunch of chancers from the Feeling Small Party, as they say scum rises to the top.
