McDaid's U-Turn

It’s certainly no laughing matter but you have to hear this description on yesterday’s News at One on RTE Radio One by a lorry driver of Donegal Deputy and former Minister, Dr. Jim McDaid’s driving on Tuesday night on his way back from the Punchestown races. It’s prompted much talk about how Ireland lacks a culture of resignation with discgraced public representatives clinging to office in a most un-British fashion! Your thoughts?

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.
