It was all a bit reminiscent of the scene of a big accident where platoons of impatient coppers assiduously shepherd eager rubberneckers away from the grisly action with the standard line of, "Move along there folks, nothing to see here".
From the blithe unconcern emanating from various cabinet ministers (and a former Taoiseach) yesterday, one would easily believe that Car-Crash Cowen had damn nearly skidded into a ditch around the same time that the Brits lobbed shells at the GPO rather than a mere seven days previously.
It seems there's truth in that rusty old saying that a week is a long time in politics.
