John O'Donoghue chairs the ethics committee - note the dirty linen inside the chamber
from seanie at his desk in mcelligotts
So what is the view from the Kingdom? Sure it's a scandal to be sure, but a man in that position has to play the game. Aren't they all at it? It was a gift from Bertie, well not a gift exactly but a payoff for being dumped from Justice to Arts.
All those flights from Kerry Airport ? You couldn't pay for the advertising. Kerry? I think I'll fly.
Above politics? Nonsense, doesn't he need to help his people in these bad times ? Check his personal website to see how non-political he is. And of course he has to keep an eye on the Healy-Raes.
And then look at the employment he has created in his office - that bucks the trend and sets a good example for others.
John O'Donoghue believes in keeping an open mind -so open that he has absolutely no goals and objectives at all. None. Zero. Again it is on his website - check out http://www.johnodonoghue.ie/goals.php4
Zero tolerance. Zero goals. Zero ethics.
