THE IRISH INDEPENDENT is filling front pages with 1000 cuts of Deputy John McGuinness, an Irish politician who heads the most powerful committee in national government. From the newbites I've read, it sounds like a civil servant with an axe to grind has helped journalists cobble together a string of efficient Freedom of Information requests that raise issues every politician should answer.
The Irish Times gives a more balanced view of what's happening behind the scenes. In one article, the Indo spotlights an expensive office renovation without mentioning the incoming politicians don't decide on those kinds of things. Renovations happen whenever the governments change and as an occasional visitor to the office premises in question, I can attest to the worn carpet existing before the changes happened.
