Ahern helped with passport

RTE are leading with this story and it looks like this will set the news agenda for tomorrow. Ahern is due back before the Tribunal on February 21 and 22.

It has been confirmed tonight that Bertie Ahern assisted Manchester businessman Norman Turner in receiving a passport in 1994.

Mr Turner – who donated money to Fianna Fáil – was at the centre of a proposal to build a controversial casino in the Phoenix Park in the same year.

The information has come to light following a series of parliamentary questions by Fine Gael deputy Phil Hogan.

Let me say it again, it is time for Ahern to resign.

  1. Occasionally I’m glad to have moved to a country that has no politics to speak of.

    I regret to report I have as yet been unsuccessful in exporting the “Bertie out” philosophy, perhaps due to there being only one other Irish person in the office.
