#SluggerReport – Cahill, Adonis, Tesla and Monday headlines

Right, so this morning we covered the Mairia for Seanad story (and what Sinn Fein should do about it).

George Osborne’s ongoing effort to drive a wedge between a Corbyn led Labour party by nabbing one of New Labour’s key diggers, Stephen Adonis to “calmly and dispassionately work out what the country needs to build for its future”.

Gavin Sheridan’s very real journalism on how some private sector players are anticipating the future and how Tesla may be following their stated goal: “To accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable transport” without telling us.

And from the local headlines in swapping HIT for HIU are we getting full investigative powers for a body that can and will never operate because it will always be subject to political manipulation?
