Alan Shatter


He won’t resign because, as a member of Fine Gael, he is incapable of having done anything seriously wrong. The spirit of Paddy Donegan lives on.

But when one notes that;

(A) The gardai wanted to test him for drink-driving so they must have formed a suspiction about him.

(B) That he’s using an unconvincing excuse to explain why he didn’t take the breathalyser test. If you’ve enough puff to make long speeches in the Dail you can blow into a tube.

(C) He obviously invoked Dail privilege, there was no reason for him to mention where he was coming from otherwise.

I’d say on the balance of probabilities it looks like Shatter was in breach of the law on that day and weaselled out of it. Though we can’t know this for certain.

I’d hope that those who pounced on the ‘hypocrisy’ of Ming and Wallace will be as zealous about exposing the contradictions of Shatter’s stance.

For one thing his humbuggery about being so keen to stick the boot into political opponents because he wants to protect the good name of the Gardai rings a bit hollow given that (A) he dropped the Commissioner into the shit to save his own face and (B) his love obviously isn’t requited given that they’ve just dropped him into it.

He’s a petty little bully who wouldn’t be tolerated in office anywhere else. But let’s watch Gilmore and the Labour Party suck it up as they show their unlimited capacity to endure humiliation.

  1. TDs, the Garda Commissioner, people with asthma all Shattered by his exhalations. `Tis time indeed for him to go. Mind you, in the Shatter v Wallace affair, each is so arrogant they may well destroy the other and save everyone else the bother of off loading them.
