Dear Mr White at al,
To recap. Charlie Haughey received dubious cash gifts from rich benefactors, which he should have paid tax on, but illegally evaded this. He also did favours for his benefactors, in relation to tax, passports etc. He was corrupt.
On the other side, he was a brilliant and ballsy politician who was qualified in accountancy and law. I outlined some of his achievements above and there are plenty more.
I ask again, has any Taoiseach since had EITHER the brains or guts he had? None of you can name one because there hasn’t been one. I personally would prefer a dodgy but visionary alpha male as my leader than a mamma’s boy who was out of his depth - like Inda Kinni.
I would go so far as to say that while I hate the Blueshirts, Leo may end up going down as the brightest and bravest leader we have had since CJH! What a turn up for the books!!
