Sunday Independent Sensible Statement of the Week December 11, 2016Posted by guestposter in Uncategorized.
Our usual correspondent is on leave. So what is there to do but attempt to find something at least half-sensible in all the mess. No need to ask what the Independent is leading strong with, but this here from Gene Kerrigan is a dispassionate analysis of some fairly tawdry goings on in the Dáil this week.
I don’t have a problem with what some see as “abusing Dail privilege”. It may, on occasion, be necessary to use Dail privilege to enlighten people with information that might otherwise be forever hidden.
I hadn’t followed the Stack case and didn’t know if this was one of those instances, but, listening to my radio, I accepted that Mr Farrell acted in good conscience.
The Dail record suggests otherwise.
Any examples of less sensible statements welcome.
