    Eddie Shaw is on Vinnie's show, stammering and avoiding questions. Claims that as a 52 year old man he didn't understand what paedophilia was in either 1992 or 2002 (couldn't hear which). Loads of stuff on Twitter about it under #vinb.

    Sorry about the vagueness - here are some choicey buts:

    Refusal to answer direct questions. Assertion he didn't know what peadophilia was when he was 52 or something. Slimey one-upmanship off the back of victims by claiming you can't know what paedophilia is until you've listened to victims (like he has naturally). Won't say whether he did or didn't ask Connell if there was any truth to allegations made against the church that he was fielding press enquiries on. Oh and a bit of mud slinging at the Dublin report too.

    The rest of the panel aren't even really bothering to counter him.

    The idea that he didn't know what pedeofilia was in 2002 is very hard to believe.

    Shocking stuff.

    scary stuff indeed. he claims that the people who claim to know and to tell the rest of us what is moral or immoral were somehow mislead by legal advisors on what was the right thing to do. I would have thought that all they should have done was pay heed to their consciences if they had any that is. as for his claim that he didn't know what was involved in the sexual abuse of children until a victim spelled it out for him well I haven't the words.
