I'm just reading the FB comments on the article about this -all well wishing comments, which is fine as if somehow a victory for McCabe is a moral victory for the citizens - except all it really is is a payoff (well deserved, but a pay off to bury the past).put simply, the state must not be allowed to enter into any secret settlements where malfeasance, malafides and incompetence are involved. once the huge figures are revealed it makes it an awful lot more difficult for the politicians to wash their hands of it.
Callinan is still collecting his pension, Frances Fitzgerald is running for public office, Noreen Fitzgerald is earning a fortune on some makey-uppy "world police" role and all those who both erased penalty points or had penalty points erased are all sitting behind a veil of silence.
The sleaze McCabe uncovered is still going on - albeit potentially a bit more covertly - the citizens have been treated almost as badly as McCabe here - we're paying the payoff but getting the same corrupt state agencies despite all the alarm bells.
