you guys make the mafia look like fucking monks [part 2]

Published Categorized as politics

reported in the examiner today.

Former Tánaiste and Progressive Democrats founder Des O’Malley yesterday recalled how a FF TD was attacked and beaten by party colleagues for daring to challenge Mr Haughey’s leadership.

It was a perceptible atmosphere within Leinster House. And a thing happened that a lot of people nowadays would tell you couldn’t happen: a deputy was beaten up very severely in the precincts of Leinster House — in the front hall of Leinster House, one of the most public places of all — by four people.

“Kicked in the face and chest, knocked to the ground, kicked around, and beaten again when he was brought out to his car in the car park, and nothing ever happened as a result of that. And he was beaten up in that way because he had voted for me in the election.?

Mr O’Malley did not identify the TD who was attacked, but it’s common knowledge that it was former Defence Minister Jim Gibbons, who voted against Mr Haughey in the heave.

sounds like Dessie metioned this in 2000 before TV cameras for the Seven Ages programme also. Darn there’s no new news anymore.
