This came to mind last week, while Fine Gael was shrugging off its embarrassment over the Moriarty report revelations -- in particular, the sneaky games the party played to hide a donation of 50 grand. It happened a long time ago, Fine Gael says. Everything's different now. Today, it's all about openness and transparency.
