Another example of contempt for people

JOHN O’Donoghue’s arrogant and pathetic explanations for his outrageous expenses are yet another expression of the contempt with which the Government regards the people.

How can he have done a “good job” as Minister for Arts, Sport and Tourism when such a portfolio should not exist anyway?

Enda Kenny is just as bad, saying O’Donoghue “should apologise to the Irish taxpayer”.

The people are now way beyond accepting mealy-mouthed and insincere apologies.

O’Donoghue should be kicked out and made to repay the bulk of his lavish expenses to the public.

Thousands of unemployed people have been made redundant with little or no apology.
