    While I do agree that the commissioner should be suspended (rather than fired before findings have been confirmed), I do find it amusing listening to the calls to fire the commissioner coming from opposition benches, when the same benches rounded up on the taoiseach for forcing Callinan to resign.

    Such is politics I suppose, more point scoring than sincerely held beliefs.

      Was the derision regarding his ejection because he weathered the whistleblowers, but got ousted over the recorded phone calls, which he had actually dealt with in a relatively proper fashion?

        A combination of many things I believe? I can’t honestly say, it was after months of criticism anyway

          I thought the outrage was because Kenny claimed he had full confidence in Callinan but secretly sent a top civil servant around to Callinan’s gaff to tell him to resign. And then appointed one of Callinan’s team to the job and implemented no structural reform whatsoever while pretending that nothing had gone wrong at all and everything is grand wit all de gards.

            It’s amazing how with the flood of stories of incompetence and pronespin you can sometimes lose track of the timelines and previous isn’t it?
