Just backs up the assumption that SF are for the people and have no vested interests or influence from big corporations like FFG. Going by this labour should be the same, it’s just a shame they have sold out when they got a sniff of power.

    To be fair, just because you claim you have nothing to declare, does not mean you have nothing to declare. I’m not saying they’re lying, I’m just being objective

    Fair point Adam. I dont think it’s a coincidence however, that those on the right have declared a lot more than those on the left. More than likely because they have a lot more to declare IMO.

    How? Because they own their own houses, and some of them have an apartment that they rent out? Doesn’t exactly sound like Donald Trump.

    David, i dont know whether you’re for or against the argument i’m making? I presume your arguing in favour of right wing politicians such as Michael Noonan who has bonds in a country such as Portugal where the situation is the same if not worse than Ireland- knowing that his money is safe and the portugese people will suffer as a result of paying back these bonds. Then you have the likes of Willie O’Dea with government bonds. Is it any wonder FF are in favour of the policies of this government, it’s all about lining their pockets at the hands of ordinary people

    Sinn Fein are for the people? Because they haven’t got property or shares? I would prefer the country run by people who can manage their own wealth (which in most cases is still relatively merger) than a bunch of clueless left wingers who know nothing about managing money. No wonder they think we can get rid all all taxes except those for the rich.

    Well Brian famously had legal problems and an apartment repossessed because of bad investments and Bertie was so clueless about money that he didn’t have a bank account. So they are perfect examples of what we don’t want.

    Lots of people own property (or more correctly have mortgages) – and there’s nothing wrong with that.
    I don’t see how someone with a well paid job couldn’t have made some investments. If someone is making 50k+ a year they should have a bit left over – and they’re not going to leave it in the bank to earn no interest.
    Wouldn’t it be worse if they were so incompetent that they couldn’t even save some money and put it away as an investment?

    I googled Noonan – he’s been elected as a TD since 1981 – so 34 years as a TD and minister. Very well paid positions – so I would expect him to have some savings.
    What’s the controversy – “People with well paid jobs have money left over after paying their bills”? Of course they do, it’s idiotic to think otherwise.
    Personally i think we have too many national politicians – i’d cut their numbers in half, but that’s our constitution.

    Daryl it also confirms that Sinn Fein either don’t declare their interests, or if they are being truthful, are personally incapable of managing their own finances or generating any wealth.

    Not an encouraging track record if these are the dreamers you think will be suddenly transformed into economic rainmakers if they get into power.

    If I need a surgeon to fix my heart, I usually call someone with some credentials as a surgeon, not someone who is a thoroughly nice guy with a history of caring words and a beautiful soul.
