Public crook

For me, the highlight of the year has been to be in a position to call Charles Haughey ‘a crook’ in a national newspaper. The destruction of this man’s false legacy is the most important event for Ireland in 2006.


Now that Charles Haughey’s true pedigree has been officially established, would it be too much to ask his supporters in Dingle to replace their recent monument to this crook with a representation of the hard-pressed taxpayer – the actual source of their good fortune?

Yours, etc,
