Taking the Mick

• It is the cornerstone of justice that laws be upheld to defend its merits.

That Mick Wallace thinks he has somehow leapfrogged this when caught as a tax cheat is absurd.

If the shoe was on the other foot and Wallace had stolen from his firm M&J Wallace in order to invest in some much-needed public facilities, such as hospitals or schools, he would have been held to account by his company directors and tried without delay.
