Really Trying Episode

20161102_095531It’s all a bit confusing. So Duffy was wrong to refer to the threatened Garda strike as illegal and perhaps tantamount to mutiny. But the GRA were fine in denying that what was planned by them in the first place, was a strike. And on RTE yesterday, Duffy’s efforts to explain the context of his remarks are brushed off, whereas the GRA Ciaran O’Neill’s stuttering defence of their plan as “individual” actions, is virtually unchallenged. Regardless of where you stand on the pay dispute, it would be helpful if RTE was not diving headfirst into tabloidisation, in a journalistic equivalent to AIB trying to catch up with Anglo Irish in power-hosing loans out across the counter. Disappointing. Go for a walk.
