Call for GRA apology a joke

JUSTICE MINISTER Dermot Ahern, who, as part of the Cabinet that politically appoints every garda over the rank of inspector, tells us the Garda Representative Association needs to apologise to the Irish people for politicising the Garda Siochanna.

The same minister, whose Government politicised the financial regulation system, the building regulation system, the planning system, the civil service, FAS, the parliamentary expenses system, the tribunal of inquiry system, the public appointments system, the county councils, and everything else they got their grubby paws on, has also cornered the market in mind-bending arrogance.

I wonder sometimes does this Government compare notes at the end of the day about how much it has stretched the bounds of public tolerance?
