Laws of State, not church, all that matter

Maurice Dooley wastes no time in going for the jugular. In his opening paragraph (Irish Independent, March 16) he states: "The media have been very successful in the past year. . . in forcing resignations of politicians for perceived transgressions of political correctness."

I am at a loss to recall any politician that resigned over a matter of political correctness, but I am grateful to the press for keeping a weather eye on those who hold political office. Nobody else seems to be able to perform that function at the moment.

Once upon a time, we could depend on the church to perform such a function. Alas no more.
