When Independent TD, Michael Wallace, was asked what the public will think of his failure to pass on his workers’ pension scheme contributions he responded:
People will make their own calls on that.
Here’s my call:
Michael Wallace is a thief and a hypocrite.
He’s a thief because he took money from his workers that was supposed to go to their pension scheme and kept it for himself.
He’s a hypocrite because instead of just accepting that’s he’s a common thief and taking his punishment he sermonises about how the courts were right to take the matter seriously.
He talks out of both sides of his mouth; accepting that he’s guilty but, at the same time, not as guilty as some would believe.
He tries to off load some of his guilt on the Pensions Board claiming he had serious communications problems with the board.
