FF backwoodsman tells it like it is

Fianna Fail TD, Ned O’Keeffe in a recent interview on Newstalk.

I have been there before. I have to admit I missed the money, I didn’t miss the ministry, I missed the money. A minister is a very lucrative position to hold, a minister of state or in the cabinet, a good money job. (laughter).

I was a minister for four years and I didn’t miss the ministry but I miss the money, there’s great money in being a minister, big salaries…that’s why there’s such jealously and such a rat race for ministries.

It’s not about running the country; it’s about getting the bloody job, having a car and driver.

  1. Isn’t he the geezer who wasn’t going push for new schools in areas that didn’t vote for him?

    Another quality statesman.
