Time to tear up the script on Fianna Fail and Greece
From Bertie Ahern's leadership to tax evasion in Greece, it always pays to look at the big picture
The prevailing narrative, from the economic collapse here to the related events in Greece, can become so embedded that sometimes it is difficult to see the wood from the trees.
In recent weeks, the Banking Inquiry has done a reasonable job at unravelling the narrative surrounding the collapse here, which had become that big, bad Fianna Fail wilfully drove the country onto the rocks.
After the evidence of Charlie McCreevy, Brian Cowen and Bertie Ahern, some are still finding it more difficult than it needs to be to develop that rather lazy interpretation into a more rounded assessment of what really happened.
