Shatter Admits To Watching Mick Wallace Sleep At Night



JUSTICE MINISTER, Alan Shatter, admitted today to watching independent TD Mick Wallace sleep at night in his Wexford home on several occasions.

Mr. Shatters revelations came following a controversial interview on Prime Time last week, were he  revealed Mr Wallace had been stopped by gardaí in May 2012 for using a mobile phone while driving but that he had been given a warning rather than a fixed notice and penalty points.

“I think someone needs to keep a close eye on Mick after that whole tax evasion thing.” defended the minister. “I admit my tactics may seem a little over board, but its better to be safe than sorry.”

Shatter told WWN he has watched Mick Wallace sleep on more than 50 occasions, and would regularly sniff his hair and clothes for signs of ‘criminality’.

“I have a fairly good grasp on his routine, so I know exactly what time my Micky goes to sleep at.” he explained.

“I would sometimes put on his clothes and lay beside him, to see if I can get a whiff of any illegal activities.”

The Taoiseach defended the justice ministers actions earlier, and praised him for going beyond the call of duty: “This is the whole reason I assigned Alan to the role. He knows when you are sleeping. He knows when you’re awake. He knows if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake!”

Mick Wallace is expected to lodge a complaint with the Standards in Public Office Commission later today.

The independent TD has also warned Mr. Shatter to stay away from his family home and to stop stealing underwear from his family clothes line, stating it was ‘becoming a little bit creepy now’.
