It says “Scum: Bertie the cheating crook”
Albert Ahearn aka “Bertie” was the conservative Toiseach (prime minister/president) during the economic boom which happened in Ireland during the nineteen nineties. Much of the rise can be attributed to a combination of the two previous Toiseach’s in the proceeding decade, through a combination of frugal measures and long sighted approaches to some of Ireland’s long term ailments. Bertie inherited the riches of that labour and reaped the rewards. Mostly for the betterment of himself and his associates.
