Eoghan Harris: The sleeping public-sector sentries should be shot too

Last week I spent a short time in hospital. This gave me time to read all the papers, listen to repeats of radio programmes, and reflect on the two sides in the blame game. By far the biggest group is the Blame Bertie & Brian camp.
The chief propagandists for BB&B are Fintan O'Toole, Matt Cooper and Pat Leahy, with Vincent Browne often offering what Trotskyites call "critical" support.
But we must not forget these articulate authors of best-selling blame books have a double-headed axe to grind, one side financial, the other ideological.
