Streetdogs.blog the word on the street, observes Kevin Doyle, somewhat gleefully writes in the Irish Independent, Friday, May 31st. 2019, an article concerning Fine Gael’s pending investigation into TD Maria Bailey’s compensation claim. Apparently, Taoiseach and Fine Gael leader Leo Varadkar, wants Senior Counsel David Kennedy to compile a file on the whole controversy.
Apparently, this gentleman is to establish what is alleged to have happened at the premise involved on the night in question, He is then to be charged with the task of establishing how a personal injuries claim came to be initiated, then dropped.
Kevin Doyle himself after proudly stating that “the Irish Independent has done much of the heavy lifting for him ( David Kennedy SC ) ” goes on to suggest that Maria Bailey should be required, to be ” outlining who she thinks was behind ” a methodical” and “well-orchestrated ” emergence of media reports ” pre-planned to cause maximum damage” After this Our Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar is to determine if there was any justification in Maria Bailey’s case in the first place!!! Is there not something wrong with this process? Which on the face of it appears as a complete farce at best and a serious abuse of the individual’s rights under our constitution and the usurping of the role and functions of our courts, by certain self-serving individuals and organisations. A very slippery road.
Meanwhile, in Donegal, Frank McBreaty, ex-Fine Gael local Councillor, now independent, having resigned his party membership over alleged bullying of him and his family, is threatening legal proceedings against Fine Gael Party for alleged Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and, an allegedly stated intent by him to make Donegal County Council unworkable.
