Media rattled Big Phil's cage

Madam – I refer to an article headed, 'You knackers! We'll put manners on you – Minister threatens newspapers for publishing photo of him with press secretary on Doha trip'. (Sunday Independent, March 3, 2013).

To think a minister in power should come out with such venom as the Minister for Environment Phil Hogan did recently is unbelievable to say the least.

I congratulate the Sunday Independent for publishing this particular photograph of Minister Hogan. We are entitled to be informed about any minister in power – it is called transparency is it not?
