A Tánaiste speaks… December 6, 2012Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish Politics.
We are also bringing transparency and reform to the system of political funding. I note that no single measure caused as much outrage among the technical group yesterday as the suggestion that they would have to audit their leader’s allowance in the same way as political parties. The hypocrisy we have heard from that quarter now comes with a price attached.
Er… well, not quite…, watching the response I didn’t see any such ‘outrage’, and on the broader issue as to what the members of the Technical Group might think of such a reform this is well worth a read in that respect.
So Gilmore was speaking incorrectly – to put it at its kindest, and knowing that that was incorrect was making what was nothing more than an opportunistic political attack on political opponents in his Budget statement. What a guy.
