    Most Influential Politician IMO?
    #1
    Hi all,

    as a direct result of previous discussions, i'm wondering, in my home country, who/which politician do i admire most.
    I can "muddy" the water with how their offspring are fucking things up now but that would literally "muddy the water".

    So i'll start. Here in the Republic Of Ireland my choice would be Éamon de Valera

    Please post your candidate and as much info as you can for your selection Big GrinBig GrinTongue

    Charles Haughey

    Charles James "Charlie" Haughey (16 September 1925 – 13 June 2006) was Taoiseach of Ireland, serving three terms in office (from December 1979 to June 1981, March 1982 to December 1982, and March 1987 to February 1992).  He was also the fourth leader of Fianna Fáil (from 1979 until 1992). Haughey was first elected to Dáil Éireann as a Teachta Dála (TD) in 1957 and was re-elected in every election until 1992, he represented the Dublin North-East constituency from 1957 until 1973. The constituency lines were redrawn under the Electoral (Amendment) Act 1974 in an attempt to secure re-election for the sitting Fine Gael-Labour Party government in the 1977 election and Haughey represented Dublin-Artane in 1977, this constituency was abolished in 1981 and most of Haughey's electoral area was moved into the reformed Dublin North-Central constituency which he served from 1981 until his retirement in 1992. Haughey also served as Minister for Health and Social Welfare (1977–1979), Minister for Finance (1966–1970), Minister for Agriculture (1964–1966) and Minister for Justice (1961–1964). He also served as a Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Justice during the early years of his parliamentary career.

    even though he was corrupt,he got medical cards and busspasses done
