There is enough whistle-blowing going on in Dáil Éireann to challenge the halcyon days at the Mancunian rave venue the Hacienda.

Initially, we had gardaí blowing whistles on each other. Not to be outdone, members of the fourth estate entered the fray - with journalists blowing whistles on their journalistic colleagues.

All whistles were being blown in the direction of politicians in the hope that elected representatives will raise the matter in Dáil Éireann under the protection of privilege, provoking political and public outrage.
