He recently released a new book about crime gangs throughout ireland - to be honest i have never really paid much attention to whats in the papers about gangland activity - because at this stage it's a daily occurance , i have to say overall it's an excellent incite in to what's happened and happening around the country , the book itself pays particular attention to the limerick feud , i have to admit i was appalled at some of the stories produced, he raises a very valid point throughout the book that individuals operating in this industry have absolutely no value on life - and in a nutshell the situation is out of control - he also describes how so many murder trials have collapsed due to witness intimadation. To summerise Williams has said that we now have a new brand of criminals who are a law to themselves . Having lived in south london (Brixton) for some time i can honestly say that the cops had a better hold on things - although there is a huge amount of drugs available on the streets - this is tolerated to keep some sort of control on the situaton as far as i was told - anyone who's being in brixton will know what i mean, it seems the only way to tackle this is to offer some leniency , anyone any thoughts on this?
Paul Williams is an egomaniacal Elliott Ness fantasist and almost as much of a Garda mouthpiece as Reynolds. I saw him on the Late Late Show with that bloke from the CAB once and he was practically tossing him off on live TV.
Love football. Hate racism. Hate Rovers.
Not a fan of the tabloids and only read his article once but even I was embarrassed by the grammar. I presume he has a proof reader for his book.
Currently reading Gomorrah about the Neapolitan crime syndicates. Good read about their reach into globalised commerce.
Bring back Rocketman!
I saw the film Gomorra, which I think is based on the book you cited, and it was well worth watching.

Paul Williams and the Sunday Spoof are jokes.
He has zero credibility and fabricates stories to arouse middle Ireland.
The problem is that he has credibility with so-called middle Ireland. The problem is that the likes of George Hook still feature him on their shows despite the constant stream of bull that comes out of his mouth. As long as they continue to give his ilk airtime they don't deserve, people will still be "learning" complete crap and continuing to vote like idiots.
Of course the best thing we could all do now is stop replying to this thread and let it die. Idiots like Williams feed on both negative and positive energy, they live by the creed that any publicity is good publicity. Pathetic, but in this day and age it works.

The Sunday World is a rag full of gossip and "oh did ya hear about yer man" stories..pure and utter bull. As for yer man Curtis in the sports pages, well......enough said!!!!!!
He hangs out in Molloys, Talbot Lane/Talbot St. whoring after detectives from Store St. Garda Station.
TO TELL THE TRUTH IS REVOLUTIONARY
The ONLY foot.ie user with a type of logic named after them!
All of this has happened before. All of it will happen again.
