That's not how it works. Once you tell all you know you have no bargaining chips left.
You hold onto your chips and see what favours come your way.

On a completely unrelated note, when is the Ivan Yates book due to be published?

These include the couple's family home on St Lawrence's Road in Clontarf, although Callely moved it into his wife's sole ownership in May 2011. The couple have been estranged for the past 12 months.

This was blatantly intended to keep it out of the hands of his creditors, the writing being very much on the wall at that stage. Are these transfers ever reversed in this country?

I believe that such transfers are frequently reversed.

‘Petty jailing of Ivor Callely smacks of tokenism’ - Joe Horgan -> http://www.irishpost.co.uk/news/petty-j ... f-tokenism

Quote:
The jailing of former junior Minister and Senator Ivor Callely for five months, after all that has happened in our Republic, is not in any way the gesture some seem to see it as.
The Irish Times said it ‘sends out a strong message to our political elite’. Does it? I would suggest it sends out a message alright but not quite the message the Irish Times seems to believe.
This is no great accounting, this is no coming to terms with power. Ivor Callely was never any great political shakes and by the time he was being led down to jail he was by far and away a busted flush.
Ivor Callely’s jailing doesn’t send out a message to the great and good that they are not untouchable for it is a long day since Callely could ever have dreamt of being part of the great or the good.

there is more

So it seems O'Keeffe's seven month sentence was suspended. And if I'm reading it right, he actually defrauded more than Callely. Doesn't seem very evenhanded. Unless Callely's being punished for all the accommodation expenses that they never managed to pin on him.

Also, why does something like this require "a two year investigation"? It's a bunch of phone receipts for god's sake, not a global criminal conspiracy.

Guilty plea counts for a lot.

IIRC, though, seven months means disbarred from public office whether suspended or not?

"Of course, I was disappointed the (resignation) offer was accepted . . . I have been a proud member of the party for 51 years," he said.

Mr O'Keeffe, first elected as a TD in 1982, declined to comment any further. He insisted his position is fully reflected by a detailed statement of apology issued last Monday night.

However, his friends and family are said to be very annoyed that his resignation offer was accepted despite the party's knowledge that he was repaying the full amount involved, had co-operated fully with gardai and was going to plead guilty and issue a full apology.

"He stood by Fianna Fail loyally for many a year and it is a pity the party couldn't do the same for him now," one family source said.

Yeah, who does the party think they are? They wrecked the country, now they won't even stand by their own millionaire involved in a bit of oul' grubby expense fiddling.

While I have nothing but contempt for Callely this decision shines a very damning light on the Minister for Justice.

As of this edition of their article they've not mentioned the name of the minister (Frances Fitzgerald) once, I find it hard to believe RTE would have avoided mentioning the name had it been Alan Shatter. As this relates to an older decision it could easily lead to confusion over who was involved.
