Experienced Sinn Fein ex Minister fumbles the ball on Corporation Tax…

Just leaving this here, start from about ten minutes in… A remarkable carbon copy of Wednesday’s SDLP meltdown, here’s Conor Murphy failing to explain the figure he gives on the cost of implementing Corporation Tax, whether (wait for it) is it for one year or four?

His carefully crafted answer: no one knows? [Would that be because – unlike the SDLP’s manifesto – absolutely none of Mr Murphy’s SF manifesto is costed in any accountable way? – Ed] Cue journalistic outrage. [Not! – Ed].
