No one else stands out in what I've seen this week. I missed the much hyped debate on TV3 between Michael Martin and Eamon Gilmore..Neither from what I can gather made a striking mistake.
What did strike me was Brian Lenihan saying the government has no mandate to put more money into the banks and he will leave that to the next government... This conversion on the road to Damascus is quite a miracle. It would seem that the Fianna Fail party see it as more of a poison chalice to give to the incoming government than a recognition very late in the day that Fianna Fail has no mandate. Very noble of them indeed after 14 years of cute whore politics, based on money. Their manifesto has no mention of inequality in Irish society and how they propose to fix that... The cute whore mindset is difficult to remove despite the soft focus on the new party leader, reading this stuff.
