    I see the IT is suggesting that Veradkar is likely to agree to a re-read on Whelan. FFS, how, she has the job, he was there in the Arus....
    Just listening to Varadkar in the Daíl. O.K., so it is hot, but he sounds as though he is already regretting he's taken the job on.
    Promising the entire cohort of Ministers their jobs if they supported him must have seemed like a good idea at the time......

    Yes, he sounded flustered betimes.

    However, what is all the sh1te about Martin criticising Whelan? She had already been lashed by Fennelly. There is a sort of unwritten rule that you don't criticise judges per se. Why?

    They are supposed to be independent of the gov., rubbish, we all know that, so why not criticise?

    Goes with the territory. That line will appeal to the traditional FG voter. Nothing else matters. I'm surprised he didn't mention the church's rules, to expand the appeal.
