Ian O'Doherty: Coalition faces a slow-motion implosion over McCabe scandal
We're gonna need a bigger Gubu. When further revelations about the treatment of Garda whistleblower Maurice McCabe began to emerge last week, particularly in the wake of a damning RTÉ 'Prime Time' report on Thursday night, things already looked bad for the Government.
By close of play yesterday, they looked almost terminal.
What we have witnessed over the last few days managed to shock a general public already so punch drunk from scandals and bad behaviour by Official Ireland that one might have thought we'd be inured to outrage at this stage. But there is something so incredible and, frankly, sinister about the whole affair that few people have been able to talk of anything else.
