According yesterday's Irish Mail on Sunday (page 4) Fine Gael have got their hands on material under the FOI Act which proves that Bertie Ahern initially supported the development of a Casino on the site of the Phoenix Park racecourse.
FG sources said they got loads of material showing this and have to "plough through the stuff" but that they will be releasing it in the coming days.
Bertie has repeatedly insisted that he opposed the Casino proposal from Day 1. What will the effect be if (when) he is shown up as a liar?
Will FF members change their views on his perjury at the Mahon Tribunal, if he is shown to have lied in other arenas?
And what kind of can of worms will this open up? (since his opposition to the Casino forms a part of his Tribunal defence)
ON EDIT: John Hynes, former Chairman of An Post, has already said that Ahern was in favour of the Casino at the time
