“I don’t know if I would call it a witch-hunt..”

Interesting snippet from yesterday’s Irish News, although I’m not sure the Sinn Féin Bulletin can be accurately called a newspaper.. ANYhoo.. Apparently the Education Minister, Sinn Féin’s Caitriona Ruane, is hearing voices.. [scroll down]

“Look at who controls the media and in whose interest the media works,” Ms Ruane said. “There is, and I am putting this in inverted commas, the old boys’ network and I think that is what you are seeing.

“The voices that we are hearing are the voices of the establishment. What we need to hear are the voices of the people who are pro-change and I am meeting them every day. “I don’t know if I would call it a witch-hunt. What I do know is that there are many people trying to block and frustrate change but I have never let loud voices stop the work I do.”

That would include these ‘old boys’, presumably..
