Do you know the full story on this Burnout? I have not had time to read up on it, is it similar to the ESAT one.

Well you would think the way finne gael organised the ESAT Lowry set up with no side effects they obviously thought they could just do it again. Naughten should have known that he was too close (seven meetings and dinners) to the only bidder left and that having sneaky New York dinners and looking after his birthday parties in the Dail restaurant was a tad too far for Timmy Dooley and Fine Fail.

Ha,ha, Sinn Féin saying they have never seen something so chaotic in the Dáil chamber.

Short memories, what about Brian Cowan's balls up of his cabinet reshuffle before that government collapsed.

It seemed to me that Naughton's orginal rebuttal was rather weak and slowly more information about this was coming in to the public domain.

The real question is, has this resignation stopped full disclosure into the public domain? One would hope not and that all the facts would be open to public scrutiny.

Was Clueless Minister seen "as offered/taking a bung from the only bidder left".? The perception was "all wrong for Clueless Naughten" as a gombeen totally out of his depth and not "worldy /streetwise enough".He was given the job just to buy his vote for FG and keep them in power.Seems to me like a "Tony Gregoryesque arrangement" which got this ball rolling back in the early- mid 1980s.As a way of doing business our politicians are still gombeens , and are a "law unto themselves"

It just shows us the mentality, stupidity and utter incompetence of a lot of the elected gombeens, a street kid could tell you what was going to happen especially after ESAT. Slippery slope to an election.

This Naughton story illustrates accurately as to why Naughton is a complete moron.

Not only did he deliberately break the rules about consorting with bidders, he did so without giving a second thought to doing it

And even his excuse to try to explain away his behaviour was incompetent.
He is a rather special calibre of moron
