The former head of the civil service, Lord O’Donnell has said recently, that it was wrong for Tory ministers to shift the blame onto their officials. This follows high profile cases of Tory ministers making "fall guys" of the civil service in two rather odious matters. Lord O'Donnell said, "What I think is self defeating, is attacking their own staff," he told the BBC Today Programme. read full story / add a comment

Well it is a daunting task for a simple punter like me to attempt to write about Wednesday night's performance in The National Concert Hall by the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig; directed by Riccardo Chailly, Gewandhauskappellmeister; with Lynn Harrell, cello. The concert opened with Shostakovich, Cello Concerto No. 2 in G, Opus 126. Rachmaninov Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Opus 27, was given after the interval. For me it was a once-in-a-lifetime event, the best orchestral concert I ever attended. read full story / add a comment

Another thread speculated that recent attacks on RTE by the Sunday Independent were due to a generalised attack on the public sector, on relatively independent journalism in the publicly owned RTE during a period of recession, on disappointment at the election of Michael D Higgins and defeat for the right wing entrepreneur, Sean Gallagher (and the part played by RTE in exposing Gallagher). That story is here:

Sunday Independent that defended Bertie Ahern - on anti RTE, President Michael D Higgins, crusade

There could be more to it than that. read full story / add a comment
The story you won't read in Irish Independent on 23 March 2012 - but they know it's true
national / arts and media / news report Friday March 23, 2012 12:51 by Jim Thompson   text 3 comments (last - saturday march 24, 2012 20:09)   image 7 images   video 1 video file   1 attached file
The Sunday independent is the paper that defended Bertie Ahern tooth and nail. This is the paper that helped him win the 2007 general election. This is the paper whose jaded star columnist, Eoghan Harris, denounced all and sundry who criticised Ahern and who Ahern appointed a Senator as a reward for his scribblings.

This is the paper that today takes the high moral ground with RTE. This is the paper that covers acres of newsprint with hypocritical calls for the heads of RTE staff and for full disclosure. What about full disclosure of how the Sindo got it wrong on the death of Liam Lawlor, falsly accusing the corrupt politician of being in a car with a prostitute. It is the Sunday Independent that has prostituted itself to power in the name of its own power to destroy reputations. read full story / add a comment

Sean Gallagher is about as useful to Irish society as the cartoon behind his picture and his presidential policies had the same substance as the sugary drip he is sucking.

RTE is the victim of a political scam artist who sold his story (for how much?) to the Sindo. This chicken (shit) farmer who tried to scam nearly 60,000 Euro is now trying to scam the public. It is all a big ball of smoke. read full story / add a comment
