Haughey and Lowry are two peas in a pod

I note from Sam Smyth's article (Irish Independent, March 30) that Michael Lowry, in his speech to the Dail, stated "the Moriarty Tribunal has not done the State some service".

Obviously, his definition of "doing the State some service" is based on the last 'eminent politician' who used those words in the Dail -- Charles Haughey. Two peas from the same pod?
