Extreme care required… July 4, 2012Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish Politics, The Left.
I mentioned this in relation to SF last week, but it seems appropriate in light of the latest news of TDs expenses. There are FOI’s flying around the Oireachtas regarding politicians expenses and use of same and have been since the start of this Dáil, and understandably so.
Of course this is a political attack – and noticeably so given the way the spotlight keeps coming back to the Opposition (bar, tellingly FF, at least so far), but it is one shaped for the times we live in and one designed to achieve maximum impact. It’ll blow over sooner rather than later, but necessary to ensure that there are no other rakes lying in the grass waiting to be stepped upon.
