Fair play to Lucinda Creighton for highlighting the utter hypocrisy of Fine Gael's attacks on Fianna Fail over its unhealthy wheelings and dealings with property developers and reliance on lavish corporate fundraising events while being partial to similar means of financing its own party political machine.

It is not so long since Fine Gael deputies and senators were tripping over themselves as they lined up to shriek with indignation at the "outrageous" and "inappropriate" Galway tent, lambasting the very idea of all those corporate big shots rubbing shoulders with the Fianna Fail top brass.
