Voters will make up minds on what Gerry knew
YOU just know something is happening when politicians accuse one another of 'playing politics'. The suspicion is even further confirmed when one of the parties goes into 'whinge mode'.
Take the reaction of Pearse O'Doherty of Sinn Fein on the plinth of Leinster House yesterday afternoon. "The claims and allegations are a new low for Micheal Martin and a new low for Fianna Fail -- they are unfounded and untrue. And he should reflect on what he did. Gerry Adams has answered all these questions."
Let's get one thing out of the way quickly: Is Micheal Martin playing politics? Yes, he very definitely is.
