On corrupt politicians and the media

An Irish Senator, Shane Ross, wrote a quite staggering article in the Irish Sunday Indepedent last Sunday, 23 March. I was incensed after reading it.

Senator Ross indicates, by implication in his argument, that it ok to evade tax, and basically to rob banks. It forms a part of an argument about Ireland’s former leader Charles Haughey that praises him as a ‘Great Man’ – this is amazing coming from a journalist let alone a politician.

So annoyed was my uncle by this article that he has contacted an Irish radio show, LiveLine with Joe Duffy, to express his anger. All things going well, Anthony Sheridan should be introduced at some point in the show, hopefully to take on Ross himself.
