I'd like to thank Fianna Fail . . .
So, the money for defending the court case to stop the by-election in Donegal is gone, the same way as the money for John O'Donoghue's limousine rides; Noel Dempsey's jet to Donegal; Mary Harney's Florida hair cut; or Ivor Callely's travelling expenses is gone. Or maybe not.
Fianna Fail, clever people that they are, will not want to be seen wasting taxpayers' money coming up to an election and will surely want to pay these legal fees out of their own coffers, especially since they are the only ones to benefit from keeping themselves in power any longer.
So, on behalf of the taxpayers of this country, I would like to thank you in advance for doing the right thing.
