The Sindo is big today ,as I expected it would,on the Shatter/Wallace issue. No problem, but I thought that at least they would have the cop on to stay away from it. This same Sindo who ran with a Sam Smyth story about the Frank Connolly passport issue from info leaked to Sam by then Justice Minister Michael McDowell.

Sindo also gives a weekly col to Willie O Dea who as Minister used garda information (wrongly) to smear a political opponent in Limerick. O Dea also made a false affidavit on the issue, it all eventually led to his resignation from Cabinet.

Have the Sindo no shame at all.

Yep, Willie resigned, it being a resigning matter. When will Minister Shatter go?

Willie information was false though, and there was the question of a certain affidavit from him a law man and officer of court ?

Proper question is did McDowell resign over Frank Connolly leak. Did he f*ck ?

Yes , Aldershot Anne and her team have walked straight into it. I had expected though they had enough cuteness to stay away from it after the McDowell/ O Dea history. Or maybe it is a matter of them having no shame ?

No pet, proper question is did Minister Shattter use his office to obtain information on another colleague and use it to attack the colleague on TV. If that's the case, he should resign for his unacceptable behavior.

WTF is this thread even about?

There's another thread on Shatter's massive abuse of power in which this type of whataboutery is not only allowed but protected by a site staff member. Please merge this thread with the main Shatter thread.
