From Taoiseach to whipping boy
Is Bertie Ahern unfairly taking the flak for the nation's economic decline, asks Jody Corcoran
IN an episode of the three-part TV3 documentary, The Rise and Fall of Fianna Fail, Bertie Ahern says at one stage: "It is a right or wrong thing. People blame people."
It is all about context, of course. For Ahern, the context seems to be that he has become a lightning rod for the people's anger.
I say "seems" because I have not yet seen the episode in which he makes this remark. I have only seen the episode to be broadcast by TV3 at 10pm tomorrow night.
