“No room for honesty in Irish politics” Taoiseach tells Nulty
SHAMED TD Patrick Nulty was reportedly approached by Taoiseach Enda Kenny in Leinster house last week and warned there was “no room for honesty in Irish politics”, before being advised to stand down.
The former Labour Party member dramatically resigned his seat last Saturday after it was revealed he sent inappropriate messages on Facebook, including one to a 17-year-old girl.
Last year, Mr.Nulty made the news again after dramatically accusing his own party’s leadership of bringing the political system into disrepute by sacrificing core democratic social demands for personal political ambitions. Since then he resigned from the Labour party, painting himself as an honest politician whose only interest was that of the people.
However, his honesty once again got in the way of his career when he owned up about sending inappropriate messages to young women on Facebook.
“He should have stuck with his story about being hacked,” said one longtime politician, who wishes to remain anonymous. “That dope is his own worst enemy. Any other TD would have stayed in office and stuck with his story. Not Nulty. There is no place for people like him in Dáíl Eireann.”
Mr Nulty is said to be currently seeking treatment for his ‘telling the truth’ problem.
