THERE is no rational, logical explanation for the behaviour of the Taoiseach and RTE in the Flynn affair. None, that is, which is communicable in a language which is based on an Anglophone empirical culture of logic and law.

No, you have to resort to a language which incorporates witchcraft to understand the insane magic of what is going on. If you try to get to grips with it by using the concepts of rule by parliament, trial by ones peers and loyalty to the state, you will get nowhere - it's like serving blancmange with a spanner.
