Really, Celia?

•Celia Larkin may either be delusional or enveloped in denial regarding what is and what is not "corruption", (I never believed he (Bertie) was corrupt, Irish Independent September 1).

Aside from the grotty details that emerged from the Mahon Tribunal and elsewhere, it might be of help, Celia, as you reach to define what is and what is not corruption, to bring to your attention that any action that causes "disintegration or ruin" is corruption.

While disintegration and ruin may not have impinged on your lifestyle yet, Celia, look around you.

Others are paying a terrible price as they try to rebuild disintegrated and ruined lives caused directly by actions of the government of which Bertie was leader.
