Letters to the Editor

It would appear that the only thing Irish politicians are good at is fighting elections - it's after they have been elected that they fail miserably.

We are now being forced into an election simply because an email disappeared in the craziness of some Government department, which leads to our over-sensitive politicians claiming to have been misled. For any of us who have dealt with Government departments, missing documentation is not unusual.

Remember these over-sensitive souls are some of the very same politicians who, some weeks ago, had big enough egos to believe they could solve the North Korean crisis. But it appears communication difficulties within departments here in Ireland are now grounds for all-out political war.
