Clearly, we Mammy's boys go unrewarded
But we mustn't kick up, because that would ruin our reputation as Europeans of the Year, says Brendan O'Connor
Clarity, by definition, should be the simplest thing in the world. And we saw last week, when you put aside all the agendas and all the half truths and the opportunistic behaviour, how much people who are desperate crave clarity. And we have a right to crave clarity, but it seems the Government, and successive governments, have great difficulty offering us clarity on anything.
Moments of clarity come at the oddest of times. I experienced one last week presenting a television programme. TV might seem like the last place you might experience clarity. But in fact, live TV often demands, and offers, moments of great clarity.
