The grotesque, unbelievable, bizarre and unprecedented story of CJ. Highly entertaining. It lifts the veil on the Irish political system. This was a decent stab at shedding light on the political career of CJ. As someone who detested the man, this was a bit of an eye opener. I lived in Dublin in the 80's I was taxed at 48% when these thieves were living high on the hog. My dad paid punitive tax rates all his life and got nothing back at the end of his working life. I rejected Irish society in my 20's The weather in Ireland is terrible, nearly as bad as the politics. God Bless Ireland. grotesque, unbelievable, bizarre and unprecedented.
