Labour MEP Nessa Childers has claimed she was threatened by a senior politician (presumably from the Labour Party) that she would be expelled from the party if she didn’t keep quiet about the proposed appointment of Kevin Cardiff to the European Court of Auditors.
She further claimed that the Press Officer (presumably the Labour Party Press Officer) told her not to talk about the matter any more.
She was also warned that she could be sued for Mr. Cardiff’s loss of income.
This is heavy stuff and indicates just how powerful Mr. Cardiff’s friends are.
Tanaiste and Leader of the Labour Party, Eamon Gilmore has denied Ms. Childers’ claims.
So, who’s telling the truth and who’s lying through their teeth?
I know who I believe.
