Significant people's (not celebrities) deaths

There are those who would say he was the best Taoiseach we never had


#1105

Who the fuck said that?


#1106

Never heard anybody say that

He fucked us over mate


#1107

He would have been wasted as Taoiseach and probably not terribly good at it. The international stage brought the best out of him.


#1108

What’s your take on his pontificating about Ireland’s failure to take in refugees as well as promoting widespread intake of refugees within the EU.


#1109

Can you provide me with some evidence of this please?


#1110

Even with our legal fees I doubt that any silk down there could have racked up 250m in fees in a 20 year period.


#1111

Well said that man.


#1112

A man of great empathy


#1113

I think it was morally justified. There is no moral justification for a wealthy land mass like Europe refusing to take in refugees.


#1114

He wasn’t to know that when he became AG and entered the public service.


#1115

He was one of the chief designers of chaos in European society over the last twenty years.


#1116

He could have always gone back to the bar as many AGs have done before. It was a temporary gig with a nice pension and door opening opportunities which he utterly exploited to his own gain


#1117

The ex head of GS and BP worrying about the welfare of the poor? You convinced by his concern?


#1118

Utterly.


#1119

You’ve let the veil slip here big time this evening.


#1120

So it wasn’t about letting cheap labour flood the EU?


#1121

No. It was genuine humanitarian concern.


#1122

How many did he take in to his mansion?


#1123

He defended and promoted the interests of the bond holders we bailed out. It emerged a few years later he was one of the biggest ones himself.
He’s blood on his hands like the shinners ye rail against.
I’d put a stake through him just to make sure the cunt is dead.
