What is happening at the Irish Times?
Peter McLoone, chair of FAS, during its worst excesses , has been appointed to the Board of the IT trust.
This is a man who was forced to resign as chairman - which probably explains why the potted CV published in today 's paper omits any reference to his time at an organisation whose initials were said to stand for "Filching And Stealing". Is he replacing Begg the Beard in a Buggins' Turn for trade unionists?
Whatever the explanation, the IT has damaged itself by putting this blackguard on its Board.
