Independent TD Mick Wallacehas employed a team of makeover artists to drastically lower his profile following a series of embarassingly hypocritical and costly tax and business disasters which have portrayed him as a classic bare-faced Celtic Tiger-era property-portfolio creep. Deputy Wallace will undergo the career-saving operating when he returns from enjoying himself in Poland at the European Championships.
The TD left the country reeling when he made a settlement with Revenue for underdeclared VAT resulting in a 2.1m liability which he says is “unlikely” to be paid.

The makeover artists are Gombeenifying the TD in an effort to make him 68% more forgettable and upping his ‘typical cute hoor’ quota, clearing the way for Wallace to continue as an independant with a clean sheet and no tax bills to pay.
