Mick Wallace Opinion Piece 17/06/2012

"Bless me Father for I have ripped off the Revenue".......

Mick Wallace stares at a reputation in tatters. For too long he portrayed himself as a common man, with the bright pink t-shirts, jeans and scruffy hair. There is no denying it that Mick was "one of us". He, more than any of the other colourful members of the technical group, said what the average person was feeling, regarding "the establishment". His vociferous protestations attacking the previous governments record, his denunciations of the hypocrisy and cronyism inherent in the political establishment, and his public condemnation of the culture of unfair cuts resounded with many disaffected members of the public. Yet, when the spotlight was placed on this prominent member of the opposition he himself does not stand up to scrutiny. Elected last year with more than 13,000 first preferences in the General Election Wallace was undoubtedly deserving of his seat in Leinster House. Yet with election to Dáil Éireann comes the acknowledgement of increased media scrutiny and greater public responsibility, and in this significant test, the first real hurdle placed at Wallace's feet, he has failed to convey any measure of responsibility or probity in the public eye. Mick Wallace tried so hard to be different. In that regard he looked and acted the part. But behind those blonde locks lurked a deceitful and insidious secret that disappointed a nation. No individual would have wished that the gutsy, outspoken Wallace would, in the end, turn out to be like so many others who went before him. And for a man, with his record, to now attempt to "come clean", and enter the confession box with a desperate plea of, "bless me Father for I have ripped off the Revenue", I regret to say, stinks of duplicity and hypocrisy.
