Not the most humble of resignation letters. You can tell he still feels deep down that he's a victim here and everyone has been out to get him.

Muppet , did Wallace not just have a cop point at him through his window at traffic lights? I don't think he actually stopped.
Glad to see that arrogant git resign, even his supposed apologies and resignation letter stink of arrogance.

Yes he had to go, in fact he should have gone a long time ago, but how f*cked up is this country when anyone has to resign over a hoor like Mick Wallace.
I'm gonna show you as gently as I can how much you don't know.

Dunno, but driving while on the phone is still breaking the law. So is not paying €1.4m in vat.

The resignation has nothing to do with the Mick Wallace/Data Protection breach. It's on foot of the Guerin report on the handling of the whistleblowers' allegations.

Good riddance either way.

Minister for justice leaking Info on TV that he shouldn't or let's say at best not taking allegations of Garda corruption serious is a bit worse than Wallace. The on the phone thing is nothing. The tax evasion he was caught and made arrangements with revenue.

The reason he went in the end was the Data Protection Commissioner saying he had broken the law. He had to go in that case.

Muppet - that's not the reason. It should be enough in itself, but it's not the reason he resigned. See my post above.

I noted that Frances Fitzgerald is a possible replacement as Minister for Justice. Dear lord.
Added to Mairead McGuinness as a potential MEP can the public actually say they vote for these people?

The brain trust at FG is quite low by the looks of it, especially with enda at the helm.

edit - speaking of MEP's - i'm not forgetting that weasel Sean Kelly, the former GAA head. That man should never have graced croke park. Purely a career man, not a GAA man.
