"Poor Ray" jailed

So "Poor Ray" has finally been dealt the blows of justice. I also see today that he has (wisely) dropped his claim to over 10 million euros in legal costs. Unsurprising for a man who stood up in the Dail and told bare faced lie after bare faced lie.

Its most interesting that Burke gives the impression of poverty. Burke earns 90k a year in a pension (nearly 35 times my same-aged father's private pension). He has a house worth at least 450k in Dublin 9 (which is fairly luxurious compared to those living in the ugly dog boxes Burke sold in River Valley in the 1970s). Hardly hardship. May we spit at him when he comes out.
