Responding to damning criticism by the Comptroller and Auditor General over the €900,000 pay off to former FÁS Director General Rody Molloy, Tanaiste Mary Coughlan said on RTE (8th report).
We wanted to ensure that we did not find ourselves in a litigious situation whereby we would still be discussing this matter in the context of court proceedings as opposed to moving on in the best interests of the people who work for FAS and in the best interests of the taxpayer.
The first thing to be said about our incompetent Tanaiste is that she’s a liar. It has been established that she and Cowen lied regarding the question of legal advice surrounding Molly’s resignation.
With this in mind I don’t believe a word this woman says in the above quote. I believe the government took €900,000 of taxpayer’s money and gave it to Molly to keep his mouth shut.
What continues to astonish me is the abject docility of the Irish people. It seems our politicians can glibly throw out any excuse or lie to hide the truth with no fear whatsoever of possible consequences.
When low grade politicians like Coughlan make statements like the one quoted above they are in effect saying to the Irish people.
We have come to believe that you, the Irish people, are so stupid that you will believe anything we say no matter how ridiculous, no matter how dishonest and we will continue to treat you with the contempt that such stupidity deserves.
Giving the recent poll which indicates a dramatic rise in support for Fianna Fail I am beginning to believe they’re right.

Good on you, Anthony. I thought that you were a bit off form recently but you really put the boot in on this. I live in hope that Lincoln’s famous quote “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time” wil be proved correct in the Irish situation.

Rody here, do you want that 100 grand in the Seychelles account or the Jersey one? I keep forgetting.. keep up the good work
P.S. See you in the Shelbourne next week for a few chardonnays.
Are you in any way surprised? The “intelligent electorate” show us time and again just how “intelligent” they are. Most recently seen in June. Turkeys voting for xmas. I have no sympathy for fools. The whole scene couldnt be more cynical.
