    Can't say I have ever understood the fuss about the legal strategy. Surely it is perfectly valid, indeed essential for completeness, that any such investigation should include a thorough questioning of the motivation and credibility of witnesses?

    So, snared. Christ, this is amateur hour in the Dáil. The stink alone from the questions in the Dáil belied the end result.

    This really, really is amateur stuff.

    Along the lines of it being inappropriate to comment while the tribunal was ongoing

    I wonder was she given a briefing on the legal strategy. Did she not ask why this was the strategy. Did she have to sign off approval for it.

    No doubt Alan Kelly is formulating such questions.

    And yet I feel conflicted.

    Has Alan Kelly done the state some service?

    It’s Alan Kelly.

    Why was she moved from justice, is it possibly because of her skeletons there.

    My reading of the story is that she was made aware of the strategy after the fact, not beforehand. The issue seems to be that it was claimed that she didn't learn of the fact (after the fact) until a year later than she actually did.

    Well if they were telling porkies on the latter bit who knows what else was going on. It's like the entire state apparatus against one simple honest man.
