A question of truth telling and democracy?

Two of this week’s Telegraph columnists posed questions of Bertie Ahern this week. Steven King last night asked if he would defend democracy or adopt the usual tactic of carry on regardless. Earlier Malachi O’Doherty pointed out that the two versions of the truth could not be true, and that either the Taoiseach or the President of Sinn Fein was lying over the involvement of the IRA in the bank heist. In the end that was not the ground the SF leader chose to defend.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
