Gardaí opening a Pandora's box - for themselves and the rest of us
Now is the winter of our discontent. Again. One of the many political missteps made by Fine Gael in the run-up to the last election was to oversell the recovery of the country.
Because even as Enda Kenny was telling us that we had gone beyond mere green shots and had entered the realm of genuine growth, people looked askance.
If there was actually a recovery, most of us felt it was one which may have become noticeable to government accountants who spend their days analysing spread sheets and balance returns, but remained a mirage to everyone else.
